Business Spotlight: Shop Zero
Updated: Sep 1
To any climate-conscious and mindful shoppers looking for a local store that's committed to sustainability and ethical living in Nottingham, Shop Zero is exactly where you should be doing your next shop!
This sustainable lifestyle shop and e-commerce store in Nottingham is on a mission to sell products that help the planet more than harm it, and they're doing everything they can to make sustainable living accessible to everyone.
Its journey started way back in 2016 during the Plastic Free July Challenge, where the owner, Sarah, looked back at her own zero waste journey and how her experiences led her to want to help others reduce their plastic-footprint.
One of the things that set Shop Zero apart is their commitment to working with local producers and makers. They believe that supporting local businesses is essential for building strong communities and reducing the carbon footprint of our consumption. By sourcing products locally, they're able to reduce the environmental impact of transportation and support the local economy at the same time.
Of course, not everything can be sourced locally, but this store has a strict policy on ethical sourcing. Anything that's sold from abroad has to be sold through an ethical supply chain, meaning that the people who made the products were treated fairly and paid a living wage. They're also committed to ensuring that any products they sell are made from sustainable materials and have a minimal impact on the environment.
Shop Zero sells everything you’d expect from any local supermarket, from home items, and personal care products to food and drink, but the neat thing about them is that if you happen to be shopping in-store, all you need to do is bring your containers from home, weigh them, fill them with as much or as little as you want to buy, and then pay!
But this store is about more than just selling products. They're are committed to promoting sustainable living and helping people make more eco-friendly choices in their everyday lives. They offer a range of workshops and events on topics like composting, reducing waste, and eco-friendly cleaning. And their blog is full of tips and ideas for living a more sustainable life. Overall, this sustainable lifestyle shop and e-commerce store is a fantastic resource for anyone who wants to make a difference in the world.
By supporting local businesses, promoting sustainable living, and selling ethical and sustainable products, they're helping to create a better future for all of us. So why not stop by and see what they have to offer? You might just be inspired to make some positive changes in your own life.
