Why Zero Waste?
COVID - 19 UPDATE
To help stop the spread of this horrible virus we have put in the place the following:
1 - We are no longer allowing customers into the shop instead we will serve you at the door and collect your order for you, you can still bring your own containers.
2 - You can pre-order for collection later in the day or next day just send us a message and we can organise this for you.
3 - We will not be taking any cash and are accepting card payments or BACS only. Card payments will be reduced to a minimum of £2.00 per transaction.
4 - To any NHS / Police / Fire or elderly residents how cannot get to us in or out of working hours we can arrange collection or delivery out of hours please message us so we can arrange this.
Thank you for your continued support during this time.
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.
Bring along your own containers, Weigh them, Fill Them, PAY.
