Love Hackney Shop Local campaign

Love Hackney tote bag designed by James LongThe Love Hackney, Shop Local campaign has launched again calling on residents and visitors to support local shops and markets and think twice about using plastic bags. 

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. 
Another special limited edition tote bag has also been launched. Bags can be picked-up for free from Saturday 25 October when you purchase an item from a participating local shop.

There are loads of businesses in Stoke Newington taking part in the campaign - so join in and show your support for our great local shops on the High Street and Church Street.
