Our aim is to enable you and your family to reduce food and rubbish waste in your household. We want to make a Zero Waste lifestyle easily accessible for anyone who wants to make a difference.
"This isn’t a hippy, new age way of shopping. It was done like this before large supermarkets defined our shopping habits."
I wanted to give up using unnecessary plastic and packaging in general. I wanted to get back to basics, to have control over how much I needed to buy and where it came from.
My eyes were opened to the impact of plastic long before Blue Planet 2 and now that I am studying for a Degree in Social Sciences it has opened my eyes even more to things like consumption, sustainability and ethics.
I have discovered that small steps do make an impact. We can stand up to supermarkets and big corporations and stop them from passing the burden onto the consumer.
By choosing to shop at Zero Waste Pantry you can help to reduce un-necessary packaging, food waste and go plastic free easier.
This is your journey, any steps you can take to reduce waste will help our planet and its inhabitants for many generations to come. How can I do this? Well it’s all about the 5 R’s
There will be a range of dry goods in gravity bins, scoop bins or jars. At first the range will be small, but if there is anything you want me to get just have a chat or drop me an email.
Bring your own clean and dry container, jar or cloth bag or whatever you like really. Zero Waste Pantry will accept no liability for any contamination once products have been dispensed into your own vessels. If you do forget your own container do not despair, we will have some recycled brown bags and a jar bank to use or you may want to think about purchasing your very own cloth bags 😊
We will weigh your container for you and make a note of its weight. We will then fill this with your requested product at the amount you want. Once its full and you are finished shopping, its back to the till to pay.
A range of ‘basic’ cupboard goods such as flour, rice, pulses, lentils, dried fruit and nuts. We have a range of herbs and spices as well as loose leaf tea. We also stock a range of cleaning products by Greenscents for refill including shampoo, conditioner and hand soap, so save those empty bottles for refilling.
If you want further information on what we stock or if there is anything you think we should stock, please email us and we will investigate further.
