|'Zero Waste' Food Store to Open on Putney High Street|
The Source Bulk Foods makes a plastic bag free promise
A new ‘zero waste’ food store is set to open on Putney High Street.
The final date for opening is yet to be confirmed but a spokesperson for The Source Bulk Foods says it hopes to start trading in three to four weeks. They are currently fitting out 135 High Street, the former premises of Flight Centre, between Paul’s and Specsavers.
The chain opened its Richmond store a few days ago and already has outlets in Battersea and Chiswick.
The Source Bulk Foods was founded in Australia in 2012 based on the belief that unpackaged food should be easier to access and a smaller carbon footprint could be achieved every time you shop.
It was introduced to the UK by Patrick and Makayla in 2018 after they came across one of the stores while visiting Australia.
The philosophy of the store is to try to encourage people to rethink the way they shop and how they can reuse and recycle. It says it sources product locally and makes a plastic bag free promise.
Customers are asked to bring their own refillable bags and bottles when shopping in-store.
