Shop Local campaign

The Council has launched a Love Hackney Shop Local campaign to support our local high streets.

Businesses participating in Love Hackney, Shop Local have signed a pledge to:

  • ask customers if they really need a carrier bag (rather than automatically providing one)
  • store plastic carrier bags out of sight, behind counters
  • offer reusable bags instead of plastic bags

Lots of businesses in Stoke Newington are taking part and you can find out more online here.

We are really pleased to support this initiative – a while back, we worked to raise awareness of the Sustainable Stoke Newington Pledge and this current campaign takes forward this work.
