OUR DRIVE...FOR OUR PLANET
We are going to open a completely zero waste…single use plastic free mobile shop, to create a shop for our community and surrounding communities. We aim to source our products as ethically and locally as possible to support each other throughout this journey.
Our drive is to help encourage customers to relearn their storage solutions so that we can contribute to a greener, more sustainable environment.
How can we help your community and the Planet achieve the 7 R's.
By shopping in Olive your mobile zero waste shop!
Shopping in Olive can help you REFUSE to have your shopping trolley full of plastic. We will be offering affordable and plastic free packaging products such as Dried Foods, Household Products, and Personal Care Products.
As we are mobile we will be able to reach more of you in our neighbouring villages.

HOW TO SHOP IN OLIVE...
Check out on our Facebook and Instagram at the beginning of every month to see where our stops will be for the coming month.
Bring your containers in all shapes and sizes, or use some from our Recycle Donation Box.
Weigh your container, fill your container, re weigh and pay... No Plastic...No Waste...Just re-fill.
CLICK AND COLLECT...
Visit us on line, place your order and collect from our HQ at designated collection times, we know how hard it is to shop plastic free with the limited resources so we will be doing some 'after work' hours.
FACT...Face wipes and baby wipes can pollute planet for 500 years if you flush them down the loo because most are made of plastic.
HOW WILL WE SPEND THE MONEY...
We have brought the van and paid for the boring stuff like, insurance, mot, road tax etc. We need your help with the Exciting Stuff, we are using as much recycled materials as we can get our hands on, but we need your help and pledges to raise £8,000 for our first dry food bulk order, Gravity dispensers, scoops, jars, coffee grinder (how cool will that be... grind on site), scales, till system and other essential equipment (the list keeps growing). This will enable us to be as competitive as we can with the big Plastic Supermarkets, we will also be able to invest more back into Our Planet so that we can bring more of what you want to you.
REWARDS...OUR THANK YOU TO YOU...
The really exciting bit for you as well as knowing that you are helping to make this happen for our communities is knowing you will get a reward...these rewards range from helping you to become more single use plastic free, with zero waste goodies to some amazing discounts for you and your family when you come shopping with us.
You can even have your Name or Business Name on our van, having pride and place with every trip that we make.
TELL EVERYONE YOU BUMP INTO!
We understand that some of you would love to help with pledging but this is not doable... but what you can do is spread the word that we are Crowdfunding to everyone you know, friends, family, work colleagues, postman, milkman even the deliveryman... as every little helps makes this dream come true.
HOT OFF THE PRESS...OUR LOCAL COMMUNITIES ARE BEHIND US...
One of our sites where we have been offered to stop with Olive has just been awarded... Plastic Free Communities status by Surfers Against Sewage, we are excited to be working with them in Ferndown with Olive to help them achieve their goals of plastic free shopping!
Congratulations Ferndown for this amazing award.
WHO ARE WE...
Hi I am Laurraine, from a early age living in the New Forest growing up relying on the local milkman, baker, butcher and even taking our Corona glass bottle to the back of the pub for a 5p refund. I feel that I was very lucky to have experienced a true community, but sad that most of our children have no idea what this is like.
This is one of the many reasons I decided I wanted to do my bit for my local communities and give something back to make our children's future a better place.
Along with my partner Mark who has years of experience within the Building Industry and can turn something you would throw away into something that looks great, we are able to fit Olive out with reclaimed pallets, second hand items which has helped us save money as well as all these items not ending up in landfill.
My daughter Lilly is over the moon with this new venture and can not help enough with price comparisons and what is cool to have in Olive. Like a lot of teenagers, she is very aware and saddened by what is happening to her planet and her future!
Hopefully with your help we can make this planet a better place. BEEP BEEP
