Brightonians use 242 million pieces of single use plastic a year – The Source Bulk Foods store is here to revolutionise the way you shop
Health food store, The Source Bulk Foods, will be launching its first-ever shop in Brighton in November. The Source Bulk Foods is a zero waste shopping advocate, helping the UK to shop healthily. Targeted at foodies and eco-conscious shoppers looking to reduce waste in their daily lives, the store is set to revolutionise the way people shop for the better.
Following the success of the Australian companies existing stores in Chiswick and Battersea, The Source Bulk Foods will open on 18thNovember on Western Road in Brighton. The store offers over 450 quality ingredients housed in eco-savvy containers. The affordable range includes vegan, paleo, dairy free, organic and gluten friendly food options – from healthy treats and cooking liquids to household and personal care products.
With Brighton accounting for 242 million pieces of single use plastic used every year (a small percentage of the 59 billion nationwide*), the shop will take a ‘Package it yourself’ approach where consumers can scoop items into recycled brown paper bags, reusable containers brought from home or glass jars available to purchase in store. The Source Bulk Foods store will allow customers to buy what they need without any unnecessary packaging, including single use plastic.
Makayla Drummond, Managing Director at The Source Bulk Foods commented “We feel truly proud and excited to be expanding The Source Bulk Foods family into Brighton. We believe the community here is as enthusiastic as we are when it comes to decreasing the amount of single use plastic, and we can’t wait to open the doors to welcome our new customers.”
