Located opposite South Croydon Recreation Ground on Sanderstead Road, this independent coffee shop offers direct trade coffee, lots of homemade treats as well as eco bits and pieces to check out when you pop in. They embrace a minimal waste ethos and are constantly trying to find new ways to reduce waste.
They participate in the scheme created by Pantry Project. A local zero waste shopping concept that rebels against packaging, whilst remaining competitively priced.
Abigail Pedrick is the owner and founder of Caterham’s new zero-waste shop, Pedricks. With the aim of helping customers reduce their single-use packaging waste, Pedrick’s mission is to offer plastic-free alternatives as well as stocking produce from local suppliers and ethical sources. They also sell a range of toiletries, cleaning products and refillables.
With a focus on upcycling and reusables, Roots and Cycles offer an expanding selection of kitchen and bathroom essentials without the non recyclable packaging and with all the eco credentials. Locally sourced, handmade products including soaps, candles and oils sit alongside refillable household products and lighting made from recycled items, such as colanders.
The Store Cupboard opens its doors every Saturday and Wednesday between 14:00-19-00 at Crystal Palace Food market, stocking unpackaged organic whole foods, dried fruit, sourdough bread and pastries, as well as herbal teas and spices sold by weight.
