Hi, so I’ve been thinking the past couple of years about wanting to open a Eco friendly shop but there’s one thing stopping me from achieving this, and that’s having the money to get it started.
There’s been a lot of media coverage of recent months about the devastation the plastic bottles are having on oceans and environment but the bottles are only a part of the problem. Plastic bags take 10-20 years to decompose. A sanitary product can take 500-800 years and just 1 single women uses 5-15 thousand towels or tampons in their lifetime! The list is endless and I won’t bore you with it but these are shocking facts!
My mission is to open a shop that gives as much opportunity for people to buy consumables that are environmentally friendly, vegan friendly and Zero waste.As well as there being a physical shop in Saltash, Cornwall there will also be an online store that offers direct delivery nationwide and click and collect service for the locals.

Thank you in advance Louise
