Bulk Market was the first zero waste store I ever visited in London and I remember being amazed by the variety for sale at its original location in Dalston but it’s now opened up a bigger, permanent store in Hackney with an even wider range of products.
Although I’ve not yet been to BYO, what I like is that they have a full list of products on their website so you can see what they sell before you go!
This is the cutest looking zero waste store and I love that it goes above and beyond conventional stores – not only can you buy packaged free goods but you can borrow a sustainable book, drop off your hard to recycle plastics or buy sustainably bought fish!
Location: Wood Green
Founded on the belief that it should be easier to avoid plastic, it’s great that you can email your shopping list to Harmless in advance and they’ll give you the latest stock list so you know exactly what’s in store!
Location: St John’s Hill
Hetu is a zero-waste vegan store on a mission to change the world. Offering whole foods and sustainable reusable items without unnecessary packaging, Hetu is well worth a visit.
Location: Herne Hill
The latest zero waste store to open in London, the Jarr Market has a great variety of essentials including food, toiletries and cleaning supplies.
Location: Portobello Road
After being recommended by a friend I headed to Liberté Chérie on Portobello Road and was instantly taken by the charm of this little zero waste store. I love it and think you will too!
Patoka is north-west London’s first zero waste store with a fab selection of affordable and sustainable products.

Another zero waste store in Hackney, Re:Store opened in February this year, helping people access a more conscious way to shop with no single-use packaging in sight.
Locations: Chiswick & Battersea
I’ve not yet been to either of these stores but they’re very much on the list – following their success in Australia, The Source Bulk Foods decided to open their doors in both Chiswick and Battersea!
Locations: Islington, Muswell Hill, Torrington Place, Westbourne Grove.
Unpackaged has teamed up with Planet Organic in London, helping to make zero waste more accessible across the city.
On the outskirts of London, Zero Joe’s is the first zero waste store in Windsor. It’s a really cute one that’s been set up by a mother and son which by complete chance I happened to be passing on their opening day in June earlier this year!
Zéro was opened by its founders Alicia and Josh to help everyone consume more consciously. As well as being zero waste, all products are organic, fair trade or local where possible.
