New Energy-Saving Fridges

Popular Derbyshire farm shop Croots is continuing its journey to becoming more environmentally friendly by installing new energy-efficient fridges.

Over the past couple of years, the farm shop near Duffield has introduced a string of initiatives to reduce its impact on the environment, including cutting out plastic water bottles and straws, banning plastic carrier bags, reducing the use of clingfilm, increasing its plant-based vegan and vegetarian ranges, and switching the trays in the butchery department to a more recyclable type to reduce landfill waste.

Croots has also installed LED lighting in the café and back of house, with plans to shortly add a new LED lighting system for the farm shop which will not only be more environmentally friendly but is also designed to showcase and highlight Croots’ fresh foods offering.

The measures earned Croots a place as a finalist in the Environmental Heroes category of the DerbyshireLive Heroes Awards 2020.
