Why Zero Waste?

Reducing, Reusing and Recycling can be a key part of a climate change strategy to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions. 

Here at Food on the Loose we aim to help you reduce your plastic consumption and waste. We have a wide range of household essentials that will help you to reuse rather than throw away.

If you don't know where to start pop in and see us, we can give you ideas and tips to help you start your zero waste adventure.

How

It Works

Bring along your own containers or bottles, We weigh them, you fill them and PAY.

Easiest and most cost effective way for your weekly shop, only buy as much as you need no FOOD waste no PLASTIC waste.

If you forget your containers don'r panic, we have brown paper bags available on site ready for you to transfer into your jars at home.
