Herne Hill’s first zero waste shop is run by Jess. With an aim to help customers reduce their single-use packaging waste, one jar at a time. Jarr Market’s mission is to cut down on unnecessary food packaging. All of their items are sold packaging-free. Bring your own container, weigh your food and buy only what you need. Jarr Market also sells a range of toiletries, cleaning products and re-usable containers
Set in an iconic old pharmacy overlooking Clapham Common, The Common Cafe is an eco-lifestyle store, cafe and bakery making organic artisan bread, sandwiches, patisseries and cakes fresh every morning. Veggie and vegan options are available and their zero-waste section offers refills of grains, pulses, nuts, spices, herbs and cleaning products. Everything they sell is palm oil free too, so you can ensure you’re doing your bit for the rainforest, and for biodiversity.
Naked Larder came about through a real need to change our shopping habits. They sought a new way to shop, a way that would reduce the huge volumes of packaging, in particular plastic, and reduce energy intensive recycling as much as possible. The founder, Phili Denning, has created a place where people can come to source everyday food and household items with minimal packaging, and connects like-minded people who wish to do their part to minimise the impact humans are having on the environment.
Pipoca Vegan is a crêperie and zero-waste shop in Brixton, stocking loose-leaf teas, nuts, seeds, pulses, as well as loads of great household products to fill your own containers. In addition to sweet and savoury vegan crêpes, they have seasonal and daily specials which include tasty combos like jackfruit & sweet potato curry, plus a vegan English breakfast on the menu.
