I have been looking for zero waste/ no packaging food shops around Leicestershire where I live, and the closest thing to what I was looking for, that I could easily access was newly opened The Clean Kilo shop in centre of Birmingham. Easy to get there for me as I have my family there so it’s convenient when I come to visit. There are few other shops in Birmingham, and I found a good list of other similar shops in UK which I will add link to at the end of the post. You should check it out.
To be honest I was hoping that prices will be similar to supermarkets but it ended up being more then expected. Something like this is definitely worth it for singles or couples, as bulk buying for families would just end up being too expensive for someone on a budget. I hope, with more shops like this opening, the demand will grow and prices will drop.
It is definitely something I want to do more anyways to reduce use of plastic and overall waste, but I need something more local to me. I’ll keep on searching 🙂
Definitely a fun experience.
