Sustainability is a hot topic right now, and gardeners are wising up to the impact they can have on their immediate environment and the world in general.

Northampton-based GoodToBee is all about the zero-waste approach. Inspired by the Plastic Challenge, founder Madeleine embarked on a mission to eliminate single use plastics from her home. Determined to find alternative storage options to plastic bags and containers, Madeleine discovered beeswax food wraps and bags and began making them in her kitchen. GoodToBee was born. GoodToBee products are all made from locally sourced beeswax and organic, natural ingredients and all their packaging is also sustainable. Discover GoodToBee here.
