About Us

Who WE Are

Food Loose was born from a concern about the large amount of plastic waste our society generates. We know people are concerned about this too and we want to provide the opportunity to buy food and cleaning products that help to reduce their waste.

FoodLoose is your local refill shop, born from a concern of the large amount of plastic waste produced by larger companies which can often seem unavoidable.

We want to make a measurable reduction in the creation of single-use plastic waste in landfill sites, water courses and oceans, but also set an example to local and national businesses and government that the power to transform how we shop is in our hands.

By shopping with us you are voting for a sustainable future that will benefit the environment and our community!

FoodLoose is a volunteer-run refill store established as a Community Benefit Society in June 2021. Our lovely volunteers will help you refill your containers, pack your click and collect orders and help you with recommendations of reusable and plastic free products to make changes in your everyday life!

We’re also partial to an afternoon chat if you just fancy saying hello and seeing what we’re all about!

Our shop is featured in the Eco Thrifty Living Zero Waste Directory. Click HERE to check out their site.
