We are living within an outdated linear economy of production, consumption and disposal. The zero-waste mentality is to switch the whole system to a circular economy, which aims at keeping things in continuous rotation and out of the landfill. This isn’t to be confused with the recycling economy, which delays the journey to landfill but winds up there eventually after using lots of energy and resources to keep it in use until then.
At Health Foods For You, we have a selection of organic loose, self-serve products for you to choose from.
FOODS – grains, nuts, seeds, dried fruit, rice, cereals and loose-leaf teas.
PERSONAL CARE – shampoo, conditioner, hand soap, bath and shower gel
HOUSEHOLD – washing-up liquid, laundry liquid and fabric conditioner, toilet cleaner
We believe organic farming is a natural way and ‘organic food’ should in fact just be called ‘food’ So rest assured that everything sold in the Zero waste dispensers is organic.
How it works in our shop;
STEP 1. Place an empty container on the scales
STEP 2. Fill your container with the desired product.
STEP 3. Place the container back onto the scale. We work out your price, then pay for your product!
We are huge advocates of reusing over recycling so please bring along any container that you like; a mason jar, jam jar, ice cream tub or lunchbox, if it can be weighed, it can be used! This is much more cost-effective and will save you money and you will be helping our planet too.
If ever you forget to bring a container of your own, feel free to use one of our biodegradable bags. If you are new to the zero-waste experience and self-serving in general, please don’t hesitate to ask for assistance and we can show you how effortless it is to take back control of your food, getting the amount you need. Shopping this way is simple to do, empowering to you, the customer, and fun for the whole family to get involved in.
