The Clean Kilo, Birmingham's first zero waste shop, to open this Spring

After a successful crowdsourcing campaign, bringing in more than GBP 19,000, The Clean Kilo, Birmingham's first zero-waste shop, will open this Spring. It is joining a growing number of package-free shops in the UK.

The shop will sell food (including locally grown fresh fruit and veg), drinks, toiletries and cleaning products by weight. All products will be dispensed into containers that customers bring themselves. There will also be an option to buy reusable containers, use supplied paper bags or take containers from the 'free to a good home' section. More at The Clean Kilo.
