Our goal is to bring a Zerowaste shopping to Retford town centre with the aim of reducing waste and plastic packaging.

I think this is an amazing idea. I have reduced my plastic so much but still the biggest single use plastic is on items of food that until there has been no alternative.

Wishing Lou-ann & Emma all the best, here's hoping the town get behind them. We all need to make a difference, this is a great start & a great business project. X

Such a fabulous scheme, can't wait for you to open. Visited a similar venture in Birmingham, came away wishing I had access to this way of shopping, and now Retford will be leading the way !! I wish you all the best! Tracey.
