Yes, another plastic-packaging-free shop has opened its doors, this time in Hackney, London. Re:Store's zero-waste fare includes things like cooking ingredients, kombucha and reusable water bottles, displayed on lovely reclaimed pallet wood units.
Like other stores like The Clean Kilo in Birmingham, Re:Store invites shoppers to bring in their own containers to fill up from big dispensers with as much or as little product as they want. If you only want a handful of lentils for your recipe, you don't need to buy a big plastic bag of them that'll sit in your cupboard. And by reusing jars, bags or old takeaway containers you already have, you're cutting out packaging too. Waste begone!
According to its Instagram, Re:Store – founded by Megan Adams – is very open to suggestions for what it should sell, responding to consumer demand from the get-go.
