Plastic Free Warrington

We did it
On 11th October 2019 we successfully raised £3,390 with 81 supporters in 28 days

We wish to bring an unpackaged gravity bin section to the centre of Warrington. Helping reduce packaging on food is our Number 1 goal.

New stretch target

Any extra funds will simply go towards extra gravity bins.



We are Carl and Becky
, co-owners at Powered by Plants. We live a whole foods plant based life and feel the benefits this brings. We pooled our resources to bring an ethical, whole foods plant based shop to Warrington. Since opening our doors we have been blessed with a community of driven customers filled with gratitude for an ethical whole foods vegan shop on their doorstep. We can feel the passion they bring and the desire to help the planet and themselves as much as possible. Package free is a step we wanted to bring in the 3rd year of our business but demand vocally has been high. So we need help. 

Already working well

We already offer BYOB for laundry, fabric conditioner, washing up liquid, hand wash and toilet cleaner which has been super popular so far. This alone has saved many plastic bottles going to landfill. 

We started with a couple of containers of liquids and soon expanded into what we have now. We are growing this where funds allow. Helping us get our first bay of gravity bins can set the ball rolling.

Together we can all benefit

Our quest is to install a zero waste unpackaged section where you can bring your own container and fill it up with nuts, seeds, grains, pulses, cereals, dried fruit, flours and so on. This eliminates the need to stock prepackaged foods which end up as future landfill waste.  

We have kindly been sent a sample of the bins so you can see them in the shop. We have dedicated a space to accommodate a wide range of organic loose produce. Just bring a container.

Your support back on food!

We are asking for your help plain and simple. What we do in return is almost return your money back in discounts on your shopping. 3 months discount on the unpackaged range as rewards.
