A Go Greener fair aimed at encouraging people to think about the planet is being held in St Neots on July 27.

The event, at the Art & Soul Cafe, in the former Barretts store, will show visitors how they can have less impact on the planet, reduce their plastic consumption and lead a greener life.

There will be information on 'zero packaging' as well as locally-made vegan chocolate, luxury hand-made vegan soap and plastic-free children's party bags.

Organiser, Kim Rossiter, says she wants to help people make the correct choices.

"Saving our planet from extinction is the most important topic of the day, but there's lots of conflicting and confusing information out there. When people come to the Go Greener event they will be able to meet the producers of everyday products who can help them have less impact on our planet."

There will also be an opportunity for involvement on talks about climate change with Greenpeace's Jim Lomas-Faley, speak to Cambridge Solar about how solar panels and meet the team behind The Cambridgeshire Reusable Nappy Library.

There will also be a chance to recycle any brand of baby food pouches and crisp packets through the Terracycle scheme.
