All about Zero Waste Shopping
This kind of shopping might be different to what you're used to, but fear not- we're here to help...
I've never used a zero waste shop and I'm not sure what it's all about!
A zero waste shop is somewhere you can go to buy things you'd normally find in a supermarket just without all the plastic packaging. Buy as much or as little as you'd like and save some pennies along the way!
I'm nervous I've not shopped in a zero waste shop before - what if I make a mess?

Is it expensive?
We love surprising people at the till as customers are often pleased to hear just how reasonable our prices are. This was one of our primary goals to ensure this kind of shopping is as accessible as possible. Even things that may cost a little more initially, such as a reusable razor, save you so money over time.
Do I need my own containers?
You are very welcome to bring your own containers but you don't need to. Some people bring take away boxes, jars, any empties but if you don't have a container we have paper bags and home compostable bags you can use, as well as sanitised jar donations and jars you can buy.
