            Retailer of the Week: Earth. Food. Love - The Zero Waste Shop - Clearspring

Can you tell us a little bit about your shop?

Earth. Food. Love - The Zero Waste ShopWe are the UK's only zero waste shop, selling over 150 organic, plant based foods that come without the packaging. We opened March 2017 and have received an overwhelming amount of interest from other enthusiastic people that are planning to set up a similar shop of their own. We relocated from Manchester to Totnes to open the shop, this area is a wonderful location full of people passionate about the food they eat and the impact they have on the environment, a perfect place for a zero waste shop!

What’s the best part of owning a health food store?

We love to see the positive impact we are having on the planets health by drastically reducing everyone’s weekly rubbish and recycling. It’s also great to work around the energy of organic food and knowing that each time people make a purchase from us, they are nourishing their family with real, nutritious food and supporting organic farming. Each day reminds us why we do what we do.

What’s the most difficult part of owning a health food store?

As we are new, we are still figuring out what it is our customers want and need. We have changed our products accordingly, adding new items that have been requested and eliminating the slow movers. This, along with monitoring stock levels are the challenges that face us at the moment.

Why do you like to stock Clearspring products?

Because it was our number one requested product; bulk Organic Tamari! Thank-you for making this possible.

Is there an event/promotion coming up in your shop/village/area that you would like people to know about?
