The vending machines with the feel good factor
Vending machines offering healthier snacks and local products, which donate to charity and use recycled materials, have been installed in New Forest District Council's Health and Leisure Centres
The latest snack area to be improved, at Ringwood Health and Leisure Centre, was officially opened by Cllr James Binns, Portfolio Holder for New Forest District Council last week and is called the 'Honest Café.
The innovative vending machines are provided by Revive Vending. The design is based on years of research and the vending machines are assembled by hand with the wood surrounding the equipment taken from recycled pallets, sanded, and then carefully joined together.
The Honest Café serves fair-trade coffees and tea made using fat free milk. There are no high sugar drinks or snacks, and 5p from every drink sold goes to the charity EdUKaid, a UK based charity aimed at helping primary and secondary aged children attend school
