Sutton Coldfield’s Zero Packaging Shop

£898 of £1,000 goal

Raised by 67 people in 2 months
We are raising money towards setting up a Social Enterprise run Zero Packaging Shop in Sutton Coldfield. This will be voluntary run by locals. We hope to be accessible for all incomes. 

Our online market research told us that 900 locals (who use Facebook) would regularly use a zero packaging shop. It is something Sutton Coldfield needs in the town centre, as well as to stop unnecessary plastic from reaching the landfill. The nearest zero packaging shops are in Lichfield (3 projects) and in central Birmingham. 

I have done a lot of research into suppliers, best locations on where to rent a shop, other setting up costs. Unfortunately I do not have £5,000 in savings to set up, which is why I am starting this GoFundMe.

Thank you SO much for your donations, without you this wouldn't be possible. Don't forget that are giving away a free bamboo chopping board (worth £4.99) to donations over £5.

Also, thank you to those who have popped in to see us, we really love meeting people and are available Mon-Fri (most days) 9-1 if you wanted to come in and say hi, if you have any ideas or suggestions for things you want to see and do in the community.

So far we've managed to secure our unit in The Market Village, we've bought some Trade Approved Scales and a card machine reader. We now have our shelves up, with these shelves you will be able to see our vision. Remember, we are putting some personal money into this - but we want to use this for stock, so that we have more options for stock when we open.

You can also donate by switching energy supplier:
www.bulb.me/raelt6578 - you will receive £50 when you switch and our £50 will go towards The Weigh Forward.

Again, thank you so much x
