A ZERO-WASTE shop is continuing to help save the planet amid the coronavirus crisis.

Awesome.wales. in Holton Road, Barry has moved to a pre-order only service and reported that residents seem to be trying to bake bread as the pandemic continues.

Co-owner, Amy Greenfield said: “We have moved to a pre-order model and it's been really popular.

“We are delivering to lots of elderly and vulnerable residents across Barry, St Athan, Dinas Powys, Sully, Llandough, and Penarth.

“On Friday, we dropped 15 food parcels to local people and had 24 collected in-store.

“The follow day we had double that.

“The most popular products are flour, yeast, and fresh fruit and veg.

“Lots of locals seem to be baking their way through the crisis!”

She added: “We are packaging all the dry goods in compostable paper bags, but people can still refill their egg boxes and cleaning products.

“They just have to wait by the door and staff refill for them.

“We're enforcing social distancing, so a customer waits at the door, we place their shopping on a table and step away.

“Then they can fill their bags.

“It's been lovely seeing out regular customers - and also welcoming new ones.

“We have had panicked messages from people all over the world who have elderly relatives in Barry.

“They have been able to order essentials including fresh bread and milk which we have dropped off, giving them peace of mind.
