Inside Stafford’s first plastic-free shop Roots Larder

Plastic-free and zero waste shops are on the rise as the demand for more eco-friendly options continues to grow.

Roots Larder is run as a ‘not-for-profit’ Community Interest Company (CIC), which means any money made gets reinvested back into the shop and projects to support the community in reducing waste, promoting recycling and providing sustainable alternatives to single use plastic. The shop sells a wide range of wholefoods, loose leaf teas and confectionery, which are all sold by weight, and there is also a refill station supplying household cleaning products, everything from laundry detergent to liquid hand soap and multi-surface cleaners.
