DORSET’s first zero-waste shop is making it even easier for people to lead a zero-waste life with home deliveries and a click and collect service.

Waste Not Want Not (WNWN) on South Street in Bridport has partnered with Bridget’s Market fruit and veg shop on East Street to deliver products and produce straight to customers’ doors.

All WNWN’s plastic free wholefoods, refills and sustainable alternatives are available to order on their website, alongside a Bridget market’s seasonal vegetable box.

Orders come completely plastic free and customers are encouraged to return all delivery packaging to WNWN or Bridget’ Market for reuse.

The initial range for home delivery covers Bridport, the Bride Valley, Askers Valley, Beaminster, Broadwindsor, Drimpton, the Marshwood Vale, Axminster, Raymonds Hill, Lyme Regis, Charmouth and all the villages and neighbourhoods in between. Delivery to the work place is also available.

They would also like to expand and start delivering towards Crewkerne, Weymouth and Dorchester.

Lydia Wilson, the owner of WNWN, and Chris and Larissa Kemm of Bridget’s Market have been in business for a similar time and are both approaching their first anniversary.

Lydia said: “It is such a key part of our ethos to support local and to work together, which is why our relationship and collaboration will strengthen with the support of our customers from Bridport and further afield and defining community over competition.

“We are keen to buck the trend of the decline in the high street and are excited when customers inform us that they endeavour to support all shops in the town and can identify the benefits economically, ethically and sustainably for doing so.”

Waste Not Want Not has seen an increase in customers bringing their own containers to refill in bulk and has received a lot of support from the general public and like-minded organisations.

Lydia added: “This demonstration of community is so vital in pursuit of a sustainable life.

“I have been successful in running my independent shop with zero waste. I work very hard to source all products ethically, sustainably and with minimal packaging.

“Recycling is an absolute last resort and the shop does not currently employ any companies to take any waste away.

“It keeps me on my toes to come up with creative and practical uses and redesigning the conventional perception of the materials.”
