Bury St Edmunds plastic free shop Clear to Sea hosts visit from children from the Creative Education Centre
Children from the Creative Education Centre in Fornham All Saints visited Clear to Sea in St John's Street, Bury St Edmunds, to learn about plastic-free packaging.
Catherine Winn, who runs the eco-friendly store, showed the children round and explained about her business's ethos.
Eddie Hepper, who runs the centre with his wife Wendy, said: " We've been following the Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall television programmes on plastic and and been studying plastic, where it comes from, where it is useful and where it is not. After visiting Catherine at Clear to Sea we have changed some of our buying habits.
"If every child in this generation can find out about it for themselves we can change a whole generation's thinking about this problem."
Violet, seven, said she had been surprised at some of the things that can be plastic free such as toothbrushes, toothpaste and straws.
