Behind the mask with Euan

Name - Euan

Where is your mask from?
A box of 10 of them arrived at my door one morning, no explanation… very mysterious! If it was you who sent them thank you so much, they’re very comfortable!

When did you start at Easter Greens? 02/11/2021 at around midday… great times.

What do you do at Easter Greens? I am quite tall, so I enjoy reaching for the boxes of crisps and kitchen roll on the top shelf of the stockroom.

Why did you want to work at Easter Greens? I really wanted to work for an ethical local organisation, and Easter Green’s values align with my own. After doing loads of different jobs during lockdown, it’s nice to have something a bit more chilled that’s fulfilling as well! I’m at university at the mo, so it’s a perfect part time job!

What do you love about working at Easter Greens? All the vegan stuff! I have been vegan for 9 years, so it’s quite intoxicating to look around and think that everything in the shop is plant-based! All the customers are very friendly too, and it’s great to chat with them about food. 

What is your favourite item that we sell? The big chunky Vego bar baby! 150g of choccy, nutty gold!

What do you like to do outside work?  I like music, loving being able to go to live shows again. I’m booked to see so many bands that have been postponed again and again… until now! I also like running, a nice chilly few miles up the Braid Hills or Pentlands for me is stunning! Aside from that I live in the telly: Drag Race, Succession, We Are Lady Parts, Call the Midwife - I am always watching something!

What gets you out of bed in the morning? Often my eyes spring open full of vitality vigour at the first rays of dawn, I just can’t stay snoozing! I also have ‘Lonely’ by CMAT as my alarm. 

What are your ambitions in life? Time 2 get serious folks…

No to be honest at the moment I don’t really have a grand plan in mind, just try to stay as happy as I can and be kind to the people I care about. 

Once COVID is over what's the first thing you want to do? Hopefully we’re in the tail end of the coronavirus lockdowns, just need to take on the real disease now… Tories!

Tell us an interesting fact about yourself. Mmm I’m not really sure to be honest, I think I like to try and stay pretty unremarkable. If you do spot anything noteworthy, let me know and I’ll do my best to tackle it.
