A NOT-for-profit business will host a "waste-free" market next month with its owner aiming to make it easier and affordable to buy eco-friendly products.

Sustainable Living, which was set up by Georgia Roberts, who lives in Golborne, will host the market at Croft Village Memorial Hall in Warrington.

The market takes place from 10am to 4pm on Saturday, April 13, at the Mustard Lane venue.

Mum-of-one Georgia, 26, said: “When I had my baby just over a year ago, I wanted to provide the best choices that I could for him.

“As I started trying to find alternatives to things like plastic plates, I was finding it quite difficult because either things were really expensive or just not available.

“I decided to start Sustainable Living so that I could help other people in the same predicament to find what they wanted at much better prices.

“People are becoming aware that they need to make better choices for the planet, but generally they don’t know where to start.

“It’s the right time for an event like this, because lots of people are getting engaged and want to make a difference.”

The market is believed to be the first of its kind in Warrington - with a number of talks on eco-friendly lifestyles also due to take place throughout the day.

Georgia added: “This will be a marketplace where people can shop for different products that they might not have heard of including zero-waste, vegan and fair-trade stalls.

“We will also have refreshments that are all vegan and vegetarian and a few talks throughout the day to hopefully inspire people.

“Organisations including the Cheshire Wildlife Trust will also be there and giving talks about what they do.

“Hopefully it will be a really interesting day with lots of different things going on to inspire people to help them on their way to make better choices.

“I’m planning for it to be a series of events, so this is the first one and hopefully it will lead on to bigger and better things.”

Entry for the event is free, while stalls are priced at £20 each.
