Scoop is a community spirited ‘Zero Waste’ shop

Join Kate and the team discuss the importance of what she’s trying to create on Fleet High Street.

They are trying to bring the most environmentally friendly products to Fleet which remove the need for plastic packaging, support a greener lifestyle.

Kate says …In July 2018, a few folks on Keep Fleet Clean (a Facebook page that I ran to share plastic free-living ideas) were lamenting about how great it would be to have a ‘zero waste’ shop in our neighbourhood. When I tentatively said I’d look into it, I didn’t realise that 6 months later I would be running one myself!

Having been a primary school teacher for 11 years and never seriously thinking I would do anything else; this is a whole new kettle of fish! I have learnt a huge amount and I have been on a learning curve the size of a Helter skelter. Yet, I have genuinely enjoyed it.

The best thing about this whole venture – alongside being able to help others to engage in a zero-waste life and make changes – however small – has been the amazing response from our community. So much support, encouragement and help from people all over and from all walks of life.

It is with pride that we hold a 5* hygiene rating.

Thank you to everyone.
