Plastic Free Communities are being established across the UK with the intention of reducing the volume of single use plastics that reach our oceans. Plastic Free Maidenhead is a local partner of the RBWM CEC.
Wild Maidenhead, along with it’s partner organisation Wild Cookham, has been set up to help look after the wild things and wild places in our area. They want to discover, celebrate, support and protect our biodiversity, whether in the area’s 3,000 acres of domestic gardens, or in parks, wildlife areas, nature reserves and Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSIs).
Filling Good Zero Waste Shop started out as a pop-up store inside the Craft Coop at the Nicholson Shopping Centre. Opening just two days a week with a limited range of products, it proved to be a good way of inspiring hundreds of local people to reduce their plastic waste. In January 2020 founder Nelly Semaille and three volunteer directors launched a Community Share Scheme that has successfully raised sufficient funds to make Filling Good a permanent shop in Maidenhead.
The team plan to create a wonderful, welcoming space that does so much more than could be expected from a ‘simple shop’… but meanwhile Filling Good can still be found at Craft Coop every Friday and Saturday.
