ABOUT ZERO YORKSHIRE
Who We Are
Zero Yorkshire is a zero waste shop based in Slaithwaite, Huddersfield, which also operates at local events and markets from the back of our lovingly converted van. We offer earth friendly alternatives to every day items and unpackaged dry foods, so you can bring your own container and buy as much or as little as you want.
What happens when you become a customer?
The Positive Impact
We started selling plastic free alternatives to everyday items like soap, cling film, toothpaste and deodorant at local markets in May 2018. By the end of the year, our wonderful customers had saved 2,914 items of plastic packaging from going to landfill or polluting our oceans by shopping with us.
In 2019 we introduced food lines so that you can shop for products like rice, cereal and spices without the plastic packaging that you find in most supermarkets and convenience stores.
Get What You Want
Buying packaging free means that you only take what you need. There is no need to buy a kilo of something when you only need 100g. This means less food waste.
By becoming our customer, not only will you be supporting us, a family business based in Huddersfield, but you will also support our suppliers, many of whom are small businesses based locally within Yorkshire.
Grow With Us
We will always do what we can to stock the products that you want, and since our first market in May 2018, we have listened to your feedback and have sourced the products that you've asked for. Now that we have added food lines, we will always ask you to be honest and tell us if we're missing something. However, we also want you to be confident that we're doing what's right for you and our environment, so if we can't source a product locally, or without plastic, we may choose not to stock it until we are happy that the ethics of Zero Yorkshire are being upheld and we have the best outcome for everyone.
