NOT JUST LOCAL, POSTAL
Islay was in danger of losing it's main post office and had no zero waste or organic food options.
IDI has stepped in to help run and protect the Post Offices in Bowmore. The Post Office on its own is not financially viable, so we have combined it with our new project - Wild Islay Refillery, which offers a sustainable and eco friendly choice in food items and personal care, as well as post related items paper, boxes and tape - all eco friendly of course!
Our shop is well stocked and offers:
Wild Islay Refillery - offering zero waste food and eco products
Organic and specialist foods
Wild Islay Candle range
Handmade cask items - candle holders, clocks, tables and lamps
A HUGE range of organic herbs and spices
Wild Islay Refillery and Community Post Office employs 2 FTE staff.
FUNDING AND SUSTAINABILITY
This project is income-generating and therefore sustainable.
The Islay community and all of our visitors are behind this project.
The project is safeguarding an essential service and offering a sustainable, plastic free solution to the Islay community at an affordable price.
