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'S SOLUTION

 

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

  • Sweeties!

  • 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.
