A ZERO-WASTE store in Leamington is joining the war on plastic.
The new shop ‘Zero’ – which sells nothing in packets – is set to open its doors this month in Russel Street.
Eco-minded shoppers fill their own containers with dry foods such as rice, pasta, grains, legumes, herbs, spices, tea, coffee as well as cleaning products and toiletries.
The business – which until now has operated as a pop-up – was founded a year ago by Charlie Demetriou and Marisa Edworthy.
The two eco-friendly mums – who were both teachers at Southfields Primary in Coventry – had long shared a common dream of a package-free food shop.
And now their dreams have been realised in a permanent home dedicated to zero-waste goods.
Charlie told the Observer: “I’m really excited to be offering people in Leamington the chance to shop for a wide range of plastic free foods and cleaning refills, with many products locally sourced like Henley Chocolates, Charlecote flour, honey, granola and soaps. Sourcing local is so important in terms of carbon footprint and boosting the local economy.”
