In October 2019 The Students’ Union opened our zero waste section in the U Block Shop, Frenchay Campus. Stocking a range of ethical, sustainable options and the opportunity to shop zero waste.
Due to the success of The Students’ Union’s zero waste shop at Frenchay Campus, there are now plans to install a similar shop at Bower Ashton! If you have any ideas about what you’d like to see at this please let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is the process of using refillable containers at the shop:
Did you know all our unpackaged, refillable products are also cheaper than any packaged alternatives we sell? This is a fantastic way to save money while also saving the planet!
Here is a selection of the products sold in the zero waste shop. We have everything from oats to washing up liquid and more!
Most of our products are sourced from Suma, one of the largest co-operatives in Europe. A 100% vegetarian company, they only consider GM-free and cruelty-free products. With a focus on organic, fair trade and eco-friendly products Suma are championing a sustainable and equitable business model.
The whole range is derived from plant extracts and based on biodegradable and non-hazardous ingredients. None of the of the Ecoleaf range contains parabens, triclosan or phthalates. All the products are made in the UK, are Vegan Society certified and animal cruelty-free.
