Earth.Food.Love – zero waste shop Totnes Devon

Earth.Food.Love is the one of the UK’s first, bulk-buy, organic, family-run, zero-waste shops. More are opening up but this is is a trailblazer!Earth Food Love zero waste shop
Nicola and Richard are passionate about the Earth we live on, the Food we eat and we believe everything should be built on Love. They are only just beginning their zero-waste journey.
Living gently on this planet can be approached from many different angles; having shorter showers, cycling to work and ditching the aerosols, but what if changing the way you shop becomes the most powerful form of activism that you do? Every time you make a purchase, you cast a vote for the kind of world you wish to live in. We want that world to be sustainable, clean and thriving for our future generations to enjoy. That’s why they setup Earth.Food.Love

How it works

They have a sophisticated, yet simple to use self-weighing system that allows you to bring along any container to fill.

STEP 1. Place any empty container on the scale and print a label/write directly on the container the number it provides you with. This is now the weight of this container and can remain on the container for future use.

STEP 2. Fill your container with desired product.

STEP 3. Place the container back onto the scale, type in the weight number you received in step 1 and print a ticket (or write) the weight and price calculated. Then pay for your product!

We are huge advocates of reusing over recycling so please bring along any container that you like; a mason jar, jam jar, ice cream tub or lunchbox, if it can be weighed, it can be used!

If ever you forget to bring a container of your own, feel free to use one of our paper bags (available in three sizes) which are made from FSC accredited wood pulp and are fully compostable with your food waste at home. You simply skip to step 3 once you’ve filled your paper bag.
