Trip to Zero Waste shop in Birmingham.

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.

Greetings my dear reader. My name is Natalia and I am a 28-year-old Marketing with Advertising graduate from around the Midlands in England. I love to travel and do loads of road trips, but above everything, I love climbing adventures with my climbing buddies. With this blog, I would like to be able to note down my thoughts and share my adventures I can look back at in years’ time with a smile on my face. I am also on a search for more exciting adventures and self-development. Since I absolutely adore natural world I also want to develop my knowledge and skills to reduce as much waste as I can that is bad for the environment. I like feedback and others input so I always want to hear other people’s experiences and ideas.
