Meet The Team
Nikki has a strong passion for the ethos behind The Guernsey Weigh, which resonates in everything she does. After working in finance Nikki fancied a change to follow her heart. Her bubbly character along with her strong work ethic makes her a brilliant member of #TGW team.
"I'm thrilled to be working in such a creative and community based shop, bringing life back to the old market, promoting environmental awareness for Guernsey and the planet.”
Nikki recommends the delicious herbal teas and loves that she can refill her favourite shampoo and conditioner (and a sneaky chocolate covered treat every now and then!)
With his experience in managing, Ben keeps everything running smoothly here at TGW, especially working hard behind the scenes, whilst making us all have a laugh along the way. He is keen to help the business succeed in reducing the plastic problem we face both as an Island and the planet as a whole. An avid guitarist and football player outside of work, he’s always keeping himself busy!
“Here at The Guernsey Weigh we want to show people how convenient shopping can be, by taking as much or as little as you like, creating much less waste. We as humans are destroying our planet because we have mistreated how we use plastics and it’s time to change to save the next generations future.“
Ben recommends the awesome peanut butter, which is made only from pure roasted peanuts (and he might be slightly addicted to the yoghurt coated banana chips like many of TGW team)!
Sara is all about being environmentally friendly as you’ll be able to tell via her own instagram account @lifeinafloralteacup whilst also being creative in writing her own blog (www.lifeinafloralteacup.blogspot.com). The latest post being about Plastic free July! You’ll always find Sara either training for half marathons, or enjoying the outdoors... on the beach or in the sea!
“Being environmentally conscious, it’s amazing to be part of a business that is putting the environment first. It’s been brilliant seeing new and returning customers buying their food, that would otherwise be in plastic packets, completely waste free. We all need to make Guernsey more sustainable and it’s great to be a part of TGW.”
Sara recommends the Georganics activated charcoal toothpaste and when it’s empty the glass jar is perfect to reuse for things like herbs and spices, or storing things in!
