A Zero Waste Market will take place on Sunday, February 17th from 12 noon to 5 pm in Gleeson’s Townhouse as part of Roscommon’s Explore & Restore Weekend.
On offer will be a wide range of zero waste, reusable, plastic free and more sustainable alternatives to disposable, overly-packaged, and single-use everyday items. As the market is zero waste, customers will be asked to bring their own reusable bags and containers such as glass jars, paper bags, takeaway containers or anything they have that can be repurposed and filled with purchases.
Some of the products for sale will include package-free, loose groceries, soap bars, shampoo bars, children’s clothing, cloth nappies, reusable wipes, slings, knitwear, reusable coffee cups, stainless steel reusable bottles and containers, edible straws and plates, eco crafts and bamboo toothbrushes.
The market is being organised by Plastic Free Roscommon and is supported by Roscommon County Council, Roscommon Town Team, Gleeson’s Townhouse, Roscommon Tidy Towns and Kilteevan Tidy Towns.
