The town of Leighton Buzzard in the Bedfordshire county of England is the new home to a very small organic, local and fairtrade department store called Greenways. Andrea Curd and Ian Kidd, the owners of the shop believe that:

Supermarkets are making some of this produce more available to the masses, but unfortunately they are encouraging even more food miles to be added to goods that can be produced on our shores, whilst squeezing suppliers for every ounce of margin they can to increase their own wealth for the benefit of the shareholding few.

Selling food, clothing, toiletries, textiles and local art, Greenways sells products that are certified organic, and products grown to organic standards, although not certified as their “production levels are too low to warrant the £500 registration fee”.
