MOO(N) Zero Waste Market Muir of Ord

From the MOON Marketing website

"MOO(N) is launching the first local, Zero Waste Market in the Highlands, promoting a more sustainable and eco-conscious way of living with the goal of reducing waste. Our monthly markets will showcase local produce, plants, vintage and pre-owned clothing, retro furniture and earth-friendly products. 

"The MOO(N) MARKET has been set up to promote a change in the way we live and shop. We are working towards a more sustainable and eco-friendly lifestyle that is attainable and manageable and we would love to support others in doing the same.

"​Our launch market had a fantastic turnout and our next market is planned for Sunday 26 May 2019 from 11-2pm at Muir of Ord Village Hall. (This will be the last market before we have a break over the summer).

"The market will showcase a combination of second hand, vintage and recycled goods as well as great selection of eco-friendly products and local produce.  ​Visitors will be able to purchase fantastic items that don’t use plastic packaging and have a low carbon footprint.

"​We aim to demonstrate how you can have a beautiful wardrobe of clothes without shopping at fast fashion outlets. You don’t need to buy new to look amazing. 

"​We aim to demonstrate how you can furnish and equip your home with pre-owned, recycled and up-cycled products.  ​We also aim to encourage the repair and re-use of many items rather than them being thrown away.

"​Our motto is ‘waste not, want not’ ".
