Does anyone know the 2 places on lordship lane where you can refill cleaning products? Is there anywhere to refill wine and olive oil? Thank you

Sure. There are two places:

Karavan Eco (opposite Mrs Robinsons) does Ecover cleaners in bottles or refills if you take a container. We get handsoap and washing up liquid from them.

Health Matters (almost opposite Coop) does laundry detergent though I can't remember the name of the brand.

Le Cave de Bruno on LL does refills for bottles of wine as well

I'd be really interested in a zero waste shop locally....
I've been trying to buy as much as I can plastic free - taking my own containers to the butchers etc... Sainsbury were OK about me re-using one of their deli plastic pots which I took with me, and wanted olives....
On Inside Out last night they mentioned a zero waste shop in Battersea - I think it was this one...

I've also bought a few products form this great website - [andkeep.com] - plastic free cotton buds (which come in a cute paper box) and some Beeswax wraps, which are brilliant... I believe Karavan Eco also sell the wraps...

Do keep us updated if this shop happens!

Thank you for that, I wasn't aware of that website.

Does anybody know of a non-plastic substitute for freezer storage? I wash and re-use bags and containers as much as I can, but I'd prefer some other method.

It is great that there is so many people in our area actually seeing the problem and willing to do something about it.
2 Girls Café at 24 Peckham Rye just announced that they will start a zero waste shop in their café in a few weeks time so we can all start buying locally organic produce with no packaging! Let's make the difference!

Hats off to 2 girls cafe!! I support this 100%

Karavan sells bamboo lunch boxes with an elasticated band (which, to be fair, loses its tautness over time). Pret give you 50p off your hot drink if you use your own cup/mug, so that makes it 49p! I think, though, that a tax on single-use plastics or plastic-based products alongside a deposit scheme is needed to really change things.

Just an aside - Fareshares has been going a lot longer than since 1998. I lived on the Pullen's estate (where it is located) for many years and it started around 1987, I think it got properly organised around 1998.

Zero packaging would be inconvenient but zero plastic would be great. Or 100% biodegradable packaging. I hate how quickly my bins fill with unrecyclable landfill. Packaging that can be composted would be fine, would fully support it as I'm sure lots of people would.

This would be great 2 Girls Cafe. I'd be ok with no packaging - i.e. bringing my own containers.

I would definitely use a zero waste shop. Which are the shops in LL which do refills?

messageRe: Zero waste shop
Posted by ChloeDunbar March 26, 11:24AM

Yes, this would be brilliant. I am from Totnes in Devon and an amazing one has set up there:

I think this would be excellent and well used in East Dulwich or Herne Hill.

Should Open one in East Dulwich

Posted by Nigello March 27, 09:25AM

Shop or no shop, we can all cut down on packaging and waste: own cups to coffee shops, buying in bulk/concentrated liquids, etc, not buying stuff we do not need in the first place.

messageRe: Zero waste shop
Posted by tanyafairtlough April 02, 10:11AM

I would definitely shop at a place like this and I'm sure lots of people would really go for it.

Leave the packaging behind at the supermarket to dispose off.

Try buying products not wrapped in plastic, look for items in boxes, try not to use so many plastic bags when buying fruit and veg, or buy from the greengrocers who put everything in brown paper bags. Ask the butcher to wrap in paper rather in plastic bags.

Hi there,

I lived in California where I used to shop in a big grocery store, built as a cooperative (all the employees were also owners of the place). It was a zero waste shop and I loved it. I loved the idea son much that I wanted to bring it here. Looking for a partner in crime for a while, but couldn't really find one. Please feel free to PM me to talk about it.

Do they do the later versions of washing up liquid rather than the horrible clinical smelling original ?

There's a new packaging-free shop in Nunhead (near Ayres and Sopers) which does washing up liquid (as well as lots of other things)
