Sussex Food Cooperative - the SCOOP - is run by students at the University of Sussex. The students involved buy wholefoods in bulk and sell them at a weekly market on campus, encouraging fellow students and staff to bring their own reusable containers. They've also collaborated with the craft society to make grain bags. 

SCOOP have recently won the students' union's Most Sustainable Society award, and the loyal and happy customer base is proof of their positive impact. 

Find out more and follow SCOOP on their Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
