You want to do your bit for the environment but knowing where to begin can be a task in itself. Sustainability is a hot topic at the moment and demand is growing for more zero-waste products. Thankfully, there are now plenty of zero-waste shops in the UK, making it that bit easier to live a bit more sustainably.
As consumers, it can feel like your back's up against a wall; you don't want to use any unnecessary plastic, but the big brands make it so difficult to avoid the stuff. Now zero-waste shops are popping up all over the UK meaning plastic doesn't even have to be a part of the equation when you shop. From swap shops to cosmetic stores and grocers, these stores are stepping back in time and taking a similar approach to how shopping used to be done with paper bags and glass jars. So, if you can, get your tote bag ready and dive in.
