Re:Store is here to help us become slightly better humans.
Re:Store, the new zero-waste convenience store in Hackney, is committed to using no single-use packaging on site. The shop sells all your everyday essentials, such as whole foods, nuts, herbs and spices, tea, coffee, oils and household cleaning products. (Header image: @kitoates)
The idea is that you’ll bring your own containers, or buy some in store, and fill them up with as much as you need. The products mostly come from local suppliers too, including Mission Coffee roasted in Clapton and pasta from OMBRA in Bethnal Green. Re:Store also stocks various lifestyle products and toiletries from other sustainable, zero-waste brands, e.g. Georganics oral care, Chilly’s water bottles and Elephant Box storage containers.

With stores like Re:Store cropping up in the city, it makes it so much easier to live more sustainably. Reducing our use of plastics and unnecessary packaging is a great way to do our bit towards protecting the future of our planet. Let’s do David Attenborough proud…
