An innovate scheme in Shropshire, based on 'green' and sustainable principles, is being highlighted as a guide to where locals and visitors will find the very best value-for-money in the Shropshire Hills.
The directory which maps-out where people can 'go, buy, eat, and stay' not only offers its customers the chance to support some of the most sustainable businesses in Shropshire, but to also find some of the best value-for-money.
Many of the businesses are tourism-related - including B&Bs, guest houses, holiday cottages and inns. The restaurants, cafés, tearooms and inns, meanwhile, are where it's possible to enjoy afternoon teas, pub lunches and wholesome dinners made with locally-sourced produce. The food producers themselves are where customers will find an array of food-and-drink including artisan breads, home-made sausages, jams, cheeses, honey and beer.
Most of the B&Bs, guest houses, farmhouses, cafes, restaurants, pubs, shops, food producers and activity providers display the "Buy Local - Be Sustainable" logo in their windows and front doors.
