With estimates that by 2050 there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish, it really is time that we started doing our bit for the planet. A new shop, opening in Hackney, aims to do just that, by having no single-use plastic in sight. Re:Store larder shop offers a more conscious way of shopping: customers can refill their own containers (or reusable containers bought in store) with store cupboard and household essentials such as tea, coffee, herbs, spices and wholefoods as well as household cleaning products. Working with local supplies wherever possible, Re:Store will also stock Mission coffee beans – roasted in Clapton, and Ombra pasta made locally in a Bethnal Green Italian Restaurant. It’s a great way to start a new eco-friendly lifestyle.
Where? Hackney Downs Studios, 17 Amhurst Terrace, E8 2BT
