This week (22-26 May), S1, S2 and S3 pupils from The Gordons Schools (TGS), have been learning about the local and global dimensions of sustainable development and production in a project based study week.
A small delegation from Reunion Island, a French territory just off the coast of Madagascar, has been helping them and, this morning, they popped along to visit oor wee shoppie.
We chatted for ages about sustainability, clothing and cooking. They were fascinated and inspired by the principle of refilling things - maybe there'll be a refillery on Reunion Island soon which we would, of course, be delighted to run for them ! They were also amazed by the vast variety of herbs and spices we have in-store, although they were a little disappointed to see our Turmeric is from India - apparently Reunion Island Turmeric is far superior! Well, you never know, we might find some!
With many thanks to TGS for the opportunity to show them our shop and to talk about all things sustainable. It was lovely to meet them and we were absolutely delighted to talk with like minded folk.
