Hello, we are the Ecoporium! We are currently crowdfunding to open a new plastic-free coffee shop and refillery in Waverley. The Ecoporium will stock freshly baked bread and confectionery from a local baker as well as milk in refillable glass bottles from a local dairy. We will sell basic food items such as rice, flour, and pasta as well as household cleaners and cosmetics - all plastic-free.
The coffee shop will only be using compostable coffee cups or customers' own refillable cups. We will create a community hub that will signpost people to local resources and act as a meeting place. We will provide free workshops, talks, and activities to bring like-minded people together to make friends whilst at the same time decreasing plastic waste in South Yorkshire in an enjoyable way!
Whilst there are a few plastic-free shops in Sheffield, we would be the only one to be an educational resource as well as providing a good cup of coffee
What will we spend our money on?
- £1300 on till system and scales
- £2500 on gravity dispensers, a fridge, and other dispensers
- £2500 on the coffee machine, grinder, knock box
- The rest will go on initial stock and store fixtures and fixings
