Introduce an Indie - Shop Zero

A weekly spotlight on the fabulous Nottingham Independents, who make our City unique.

Introducing Shop Zero: 

Have you noticed a cute little shop next to the gorgeous Malt Cross on St James’ Street? Well, that’s Shop Zero, a shop providing you with great quality sustainable goods with minimal packaging and a lower environmental impact.  With the aim to reduce packaging and food waste, Shop Zero offer wholefoods and store cupboard essentials in bulk and unpackaged. All ready for your own containers, in the quantities that you choose. They stock all the store cupboard essentials you’d expect, like pasta, baking ingredients and zero waste reusables like wax wraps. There’s also a range of eco-friendly household cleaning and personal care refills like washing up liquid and shampoo. Plus, they stock loads of Earth-friendly swaps for personal care such as bamboo toothbrushes and shampoo bars.

Sarah is the owner and founder who started the business because she cares about the future of our planet, plus she wants to help people live more sustainably. It’s pretty hard for us to reduce our waste, carbon and plastic footprints, therefore Sarah wants to make that easier. Sarah meticulously investigates supply chains so that her customers know that the products they buy have been made by workers who are treated well, which is something we should all be considering more when shopping. Sarah supports local sustainable makers who are also following the same practices.

 

 

Did you know?

In 2020, in spite of the pandemic, Shop Zero customers were awesome! They refilled over 500 x 500ml bottles of washing up liquid, used their containers for the equivalent of 775 x 500g bags of pasta and bought over 500 bamboo toothbrushes. That’s hundreds of plastic bottles, bags and toothbrushes saved from the bin and stopped from polluting our world!

Sarah and Shop Zero featured in the first of our Talking Shop mini-series, which highlighted Nottingham Independents during the first Covid-19 lockdown. You can still view the Shop Zero video and others in the series here
