Since the war on plastic is now raging across the world reusable packaging and storage ideas are now being searched for by a growing eco audience.  At Julu we have seen a healthy rise of Tin ware purchases and this could be contributed to the increase of zero waste shops opening round the UK.  As Farm shop retailing has become popular due to social conscience. These plastic free retailers are leading the way to allowing us all the opportunity to change our shopping habits.

Prosecco Day 3

Posted by on 13 August 2018 | Comments

Happy National Prosecco Day.  A sparkling wine, Prosecco is made from a variety of grapes. One of the oldest is the Glera, but Prosecco can also be made from Chardonnay, Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir. Primarily grown and bottled in the Veneto region of Italy with persistent bubbles giving it the sparkle that makes Prosecco so appealing for celebrations. Along with that touch of sweetness (usually dry), light-bodied, refreshing aromas and flavours of white spring flowers, citrus fruits and green apples Prosecco exudes an easygoing sense of fun, occasion, and evProsecco Day 4Prosecco Dayeryday celebration.
