Why we do what we do?

Goodness Zero Waste was started from the realisation of just how difficult it can be to do your bit. We all live busy lives and for us to be able to make positive changes for our planet alternatives need to be as accessible as possible.

It's easy to loose sight of the magnitude of a problem when we don't necessarily see it for ourselves but it's so important that we take a moment to appreciate just how beautiful our world is and to do what we can to look after it.

GZW is here to make sustainable shopping simple, affordable and enjoyable!

"We don't need a handful of people doing zero waste perfectly. We need millions of people doing it imperfectly" Anne- Marie Bonneau

About Goodness Zero Waste

We're a plastic free shop, helping people to avoid single use packaging, and we're working with local, Manchester makers wherever possible. You'll find plastic free food, beauty and household products, plus ethical gifts and other exciting features including a peanut butter machine, local honey on tap and pick and mix!

Our mission is to try and help 'making a difference more convenient'. We wanted to create a fun and immersive experience for people to try and do their bit and make this kind of shopping more mainstream.

How it Works

You can bring your own tupperware/ jars etc or use what we have in store, whether it’s a paper/ cane fibre bag, a free jar which has been donated and sterilised ready for you to reuse or there are also jars and amber glass bottles available to buy.

Whatever the container simply pop it on the scales and print a weight sticker (you can keep using this sticker each time you come), fill it up, scan the label and find the product, bob’s your uncle the scales do all the hard work for you!

For click and collect orders, we will use paper/cane fibre bags for your shopping (unless otherwise stated) and have it all ready for you to collect at a time that suits you.
