Today we annihilated BoilerJuice prices yet again…No surprise there then, I hear you say…
But what amazes us is by just how much. For example many of our members in Oxfordshire would have paid over £40 more with Boilerjuice on just 500 litres – minimum order – and some of our members saved over £130 on the amount they ordered.
This is our Summer of Love. Love of what I hear you ask? Our love for beating Boilerjuice prices. Their model has become really, really old and with many reasons for not supporting a truly opaque organisation with such a dubious past, we know that both the public and suppliers are choosing to distance themselves from the organisation.
We did give them the chance to open a dialogue with us about how we could work together to build a more sustainable supply business from the community up. But we mentioned the issues of fuel poverty, carbon emissions and coordinating deliveries and it seems these are subjects they either don’t understand or don’t really want to get involved with. Oh well, our door is always open…and it leads to a different way, certainly a more sustainable future.
Meanwhile we’ll keep on telling people what we are doing, bringing them together by building our groups and working with more and more suppliers that are proud to supply our communities whilst aiding us with our mission – of which so much is completely pro bono. It is an interesting contrast give those that actually supply through Boilerjuice never actually admit to it! Especially those still charging over 75ppl for “priority” drops. It won’t be long before they are too embarrassed to do that and we would welcome your help to hasten that outcome – please just tell one person about what we do. Thank you.
