Soup and Socials at the Badger

Wednesday 22nd August 2018

Soup and Social at the Badger Pub, Brockwell Lane, Chesterfield

11am – 1.00pm Speaker Steph Mannion


Living a greener life has never been so important. We know that our world is changing; flash floods, warmer winters and much more erratic weather conditions than ever before, all suggest that global warming is having an impact.

Steph Mannion, who is dedicated to helping to sustain the planet, has a market stall on New Square in Chesterfield on Saturdays.  When we invited her along, she said she would love to talk to our group.  Do come along to listen to an interesting talk by Steph and to see what she has to offer. 

Some of the products she sells are listed below and she is introducing new products on a regular basis.  Steph’s aim is to provide quality products, re-using and re-purposing items to produce as little waste as possible.

Soap Nut Starter kit ~ A gentle way of washing your clothes, no need for conditioner and they can be composted after use ~ £5.00 gives enough for about 100 washes.

Beeswax Food Wraps – A sustainable alternative to cling film, simply wipe after use and reuse.

Reusable Face Wipes – Use instead of cotton wool pads, wash and reuse.

Flush Fizzies – Toilet cleaning and freshening without chlorine bleach.

Coffee Bags – cotton drawstring bags for coffee beans (Steph can supply coffee beans too!)

Bamboo reusable mugs

Hand knitted mug cosies

A selection of hand crafted wooden utensils – spoons, spatulas, sporks

Hand crafted wooden walking sticks

Wooden coasters made from slices of sweet cherry branches (these aren’t always available – it depends on what wood they can find)
