What are the 5 rules of zero waste?
The 5 R's: “Refuse what you do not need; reduce what you do need; reuse what you consume; recycle what you cannot refuse, reduce and reuse; or transform the rest.” – Bea Johnson.
Weigh, Fill, Pay - The Sustainable Way Forward
This sustainable practice involves customers bringing their own containers to a store offering zero waste products. The process is simple: customers weigh their empty containers at home or in the shop, mark the weight, fill them with the desired product in-store, and then only pay for the net weight of the product, excluding the container's weight. This innovative approach encourages reusable packaging, reduces waste, and empowers customers to actively participate in a zero waste lifestyle.
This helps you reduce packaging, one of the 5 R's. We now offer the Weigh, Fill, Pay service. Looking forward to seeing you in the store with your own containers. Ask any member of staff for help.
