Pack your Own is an environmentally sustainable store selling unpackaged groceries at an accessible price for our community. Selling dried foods, such as grains and cereals, chocolate drops, teas, coffee and baking goods, as well as items that reduce the need for single use plastics, such as wooden toothbrushes, reusable cloths and plastic free toothpaste.
Two families, one shared aim. To reduce our waste and try and live a simpler more sustainable life.
This isn’t just for us, it is for our kids, and the wider community. We want Kings Heath and the whole of Birmingham to strive to become a low waste, plastic free region.
From little apple pips mighty apple trees grow, and little by little we are making changes to improve our lives!
We want to share the things we learn along the way, to hopefully show that a low waste lifestyle is totally attainable.
We offer two ways to get your products.
Either by delivery to your door on Wednesday and Friday mornings or you can choose to pick it up yourself on a Wednesday and come and join us for a coffee at the Kitchen Garden in Kings Heath 9.30 – 11.30 and 5.00 – 6.30 at Fletchers next door. ?
If you are not covered for delivery but think you are close enough to get to by cargo trike then let us know and we will see if we agree!
How is it packaged?
Everything is minimally packaged in recycled paper bags from a carbon neutral facility. Items such as dried fruit are packaged in fully compostable Natureflex bags.
We use paper tape or string and pop it all in a re usable cotton bag.
Delivery & Pick Up times
Order before 12 the day before for pickup and delivery. If you are choosing pick up on a Wednesday please let us know in the notes on your order if you are coming in the morning or the afternoon.
Why not just post it to me?
We want to try and reduce food miles as well as lowering the barriers to reducing your plastic usage, if you live in the Birmingham area though get in touch as if there is demand we can expand our range. :o)
We can deliver to Moseley, Kings Heath and Stirchley.
Deliveries are Wednesday morning and Friday morning usually before 7.30am.
If you prefer you can always pick up your items on a Wednesday from the Kitchen Garden on York Road in the morning and Fletcher’s next door in the evening.
Pick Up Times: 9.30 – 11.30 and 5 – 6.30.
Please Note: Although we take every care possible items are stored in the same area as nuts (we do not hold any peanut based products) and as such any items could have traces of nuts.
