I took a trip to Preston with some friends on Saturday. It had been my intention to cycle, but rain and a late night hampered that. However, we did find what we were looking for: the Food Weighhouse (in the Guildhall for anyone interested).

We found, unpackaged
  • pasta (including wholemeal)
  • hot chocolate powder
  • sweets
  • coffee and tea bags
  • rice, couscous
  • various dried fruits + nuts
  • various powders (cake, gravy, custard and suchlike)
  • chocolate chips
  • dried banana and onion (separately
  • and more stuff - some which Single Step doesn't stock
And a very friendly shop assistant who said "This is the ultimate in recycling!" when she saw all the paper bags we'd taken.

A note of caution: you do need to take your own paper bags (if you're trying to avoid plastic) as they only provide plastic ones. Otherwise it could be a rather wasted journey!
