Win a £30 Good Sixty shopping voucher, Reg The Veg fruit box and zero-waste items from Zero Green by ‘Eating Better’ for Bristol
By Ramona Andrews
We’re inviting ALL citizens of Bristol to take stock of their eating habits for the New Year and take action under the Going for Gold strand of Eating Better in January and February. Log an action as an individual on the Going for Gold website in January or February and you could win a bundle of goodies from the Bristol-based independent good food delivery service, Good Sixty!
Going for Gold is a city-wide effort to change food in Bristol for good, and be recognised as a Gold Sustainable Food City by the end of 2020. Bristol is Going for Gold by taking major steps to improve our city’s food system in six key Food Action Areas. ‘Eating Better’ is one of these Action Areas, along with Buying Better, Food Waste, Urban Growing, Food Equality and Community Action.
Eating Better is all about changing our approach to everyday eating in a way that will have a positive impact on environmental and human health. Log one of our ‘Eating Better’ actions on the Going For Gold website and you’ll be entered into our prize draw supported by Good Sixty.
Good Sixty launched in Bristol in late 2016, connecting people with independent food businesses in the city. There are now 40 independents artisan-retailers you can shop with on their website and get items delivered to your door in one basket via zero-emissions eco bikes. Their cargo bikes deliver the same quantity of goods as a 3.5 tonne van over an eight-hour slot, using only 0.38% of the energy requirements for a diesel van.
Founder and Managing Director of Good Sixty, Chris Edwards, says, “When we heard about Bristol’s push to become a Gold Sustainable Food City we were extremely keen to support the campaign. All of us at Good Sixty are attempting to create a more ethical food system. From our zero-emissions bike deliveries to the organic certification of many of our retailers, to our commitment to plastic-free packaging where possible, including the Reg the Veg fruit box prize we’re offering in this competition.”
“We also partner with zero-waste shops like Zero Green and are pleased that together we are offering zero-waste plastic-free items in the prize to promote ethical consumerism fitting the Going for Gold actions. We’re also pleased to say that 40% of our Bristol artisans offer vegan products, fitting with the Going for Gold action to eat less meat.”
There are five suggested Eating Better actions on the Going for Gold website that you can take as an individual, or you can also tell us about other relevant actions you’re taking:
People all over Bristol have logged hundreds of good food actions on the Going for Gold website, helping to bring huge benefits to our health, our environment and the places we live. More than 50 businesses are now registered with us too. And if you log your individual actions throughout the month of January and February, you have the chance to win a £30 Good Sixty shopping voucher, Reg The Veg fruit box and Zero Green zero-waste items.
