By enabling us to expand our range of products, the benefits pretty much speak for themselves; we will be able to offer alternatives to stock that is currently in store alongside bringing in new items. We are also looking to open a beauty bar which will allow customers to create their own body/face creams allowing the reuse of containers as well as the purchase of bespoke creams.
After successfully trading for 18 months we feel we are a safe bet to back. We are still as passionate about providing waste free alternatives now as we were over 2 years ago, when we started our journey, and if we can raise extra funds to help us move forward with our ideas the benefits will reach far and wide; our current customers will be given much more choice, hopefully new customers will be tempted to shop with us and enjoy all the extra products, and we'll be providing a blue print for future zero waste shops to follow. We've always been happy to help those that have approached us asking for advice on how to start their own shop.
On a personal note, we personally funded the set up of our original shop so to have the backing of a crowdfunding campaign would help reduce the obvious financial pressures involved in raising more capital.
We would love to be able to provide a wider, more comprehensive variety of package free alternatives and hope that this campaign will appeal to you.
