Zero Waste Shop launch in Old Town

It’s a pleasure to announce that the new zero waste co-operative, Nude Foods, will be opening in Old Town on the 17th of April.

Lesley Chandler who has led the setup of the initiative writes:

“The most marvellous news is that we are collaborating with The Core in Old Town. Kris, the owner, has very generously offered a space to set up a zero-waste outlet within the café. This wonderful offer means we will be able to stock approximately 60 dry food products. Kris will also be selling fruit and veg, unwrapped of course. This is much more than our original plan for a pop-up shop. Not only that, but we will be open 6 days a week alongside the café. We want our project to be ‘for the community, by the community’ and have therefore decided to operate as a volunteer-run Community Benefit Society. We have started planning for the registration process, which takes a few weeks. For anyone wishing to volunteer, there will be lots of opportunities to get involved and help us do our bit for the planet. More details coming soon. Our proposed launch date is 17th April, so now’s the time to start saving up your containers.”

SCAN members are pleased to have played a part in the initative’s inception and organisation, and will be supporting.
