These independent Scarborough businesses are offering deals for Great Big Green Week
Independent businesses in Scarborough and along the Yorkshire Coast are offering a Big Green Deal as part of Great Big Green Week - a national climate and nature action event.
Under the Big Green Deal local enterprises select a product or service they sell that is relevant to climate change or caring for nature and design a special offer or promotion around it for the duration for the week, which runs from 18 - 26 September.
Great Big Green Week is a nationwide campaign to highlight the need for urgent action on climate and nature ahead of COP26, the United Nations Climate talks, later this year in Glasgow.
The campaign will see thousands of people across the UK organising local festivals and events.
The campaign aims to draw attention to climate change and destruction of the natural world, while also making a connection with these issues in communities like Scarborough, at the same time as showcasing actions to tackle climate change.

Andy Stubbs of Let it Brie, a cheese shop on Dean Road, said: “As an independent food outlet I try to source my products locally and to support other local businesses.
“That cuts down on air miles and supports the local economy and that’s why I’m taking part in the Big Green Deal and why I support Great Big Green Week.”
Lisa Robinson of Ethical Eve, a plastic-free refill shop in Scarborough, said: “I set up Ethical Eve to help create a better world for my children, and by bringing the zero waste refill option to Scarborough this helps our town do our part.”
