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
Gather is Peckham’s newest zero waste shop. Run by Tash and Laura, inspired by fellow initiatives to make a stand. They say ‘we’re not perfect zero wasters’ but then who can be right? They believe making small, everyday changes really can make a difference and when we all gather together, that’s when the big changes start to come. They have a wide range of bulk and zero waste products, including cereals, pasta, pulses, nuts and grains, toiletries, cleaning products and many more!
Bring Your Own thinks that food looks better without packaging, so launching their own zero-waste store was the obvious thing to do, helping consumers shop smarter and with a conscience. They provide quality, organic focused grains, pulses, nuts and dried fruits, pickles and spices, as well as other other household goods including cleaning products and body care essentials - all without the plastic wrapping. They encourage shoppers to bring their own reusable containers so you can buy just the amount you need - helping to reduce our environmental footprint and cut down on food waste.
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.
