We were delighted that the Melcourt Bag for Life won the Best New Product at the recent Garden Press Event. Judged by the many garden journalists who visited the event, the Bag for Life was recognised as a real step forward in plastic reduction – a simple idea that allows gardeners to use and re-use the bag for their compost purchases.

Managing Director Andy Chalmers said, “We are so pleased to have won this award, recognising as it does that sometimes the simple ideas are the best ones. We are very grateful to our friends at edibleculture whose idea it was and who generously allowed us to scale up their innovation.”
