A natural choice for a project with the environment at it's heart.
Newquay Orchard is a 7-acre community space in the centre of Newquay, Cornwall created and cared for by over 600 volunteers.
Based in a green space in the heart of the town, it features a traditional orchard, community grow space, a wood workshop, forest garden and a brand new community building. An open resource for the whole community to enjoy, it offers the opportunity for residents to escape, enjoy and appreciate nature whilst at the same time providing environmental education, mental health services, community events, employability services and training.
Obviously, the environment is ingrained in every aspect of the the project, so it was a natural choice to use a sustainable solution for their new bags. They chose a GJ019 Jute Bag, with black luxury handles and sides and featuring their logo printed using water-based inks. The printing took place in our very own manufacturing facility here in Cornwall – saving on the miles the bags had to travel too.
The bags have been a popular addition, and are often filled with vegetables grown at the Orchard for their volunteers. They also have plans to sell them very soon in their on-site cafe, with all proceeds going straight back into their Market Garden and supporting the work they do.
