Environmentally sound, community focused and fairly priced. Three things that are at the heart of Born from Necessity, a zero waste venture helping Londoners shop differently, and educate the younger generation on the importance of going plastic-free. They stock loads of edible options alongside great cosmetic and cleaning products, as well as writing up some tasty recipes for you to try out.
For people looking to reduce the amount of plastic they take home in their weekly shop, The Refill Larder sells affordable dry goods, bathroom and cleaning products in bulk as well as lots of plastic-free swaps for the home. Frustrated by the lack of plastic-free options currently available, founders Christina Ward and Kate Chesshyre opened The Refill Larder to ignite conversations about alternative ways to shop and ways to cut back on plastic on a day-to-day basis. They also offer free postage on orders over £30.
