Frequently asked questions
What is the problem with food packaging?
It is impossible to live without creating any environmental impact...
How can you avoid waste in your supply chain?
When you shorten the distances the food is grown/produced to your table, you get less packaging as result. Our mission is to support local and community businesses and create human relationships with our suppliers. We apply the principles of avoiding-reducing-reusing-recycling to our business model, which means that we end up with very little rubbish to deal with. The most important thing for us is being able to provide a waste-free alternative way of shopping to our customers.
Can you purchase containers from The Little Eco Shop?
Yes, you absolutely can! We offer a variety of container options for you take away your goods in.
How are your prices compared to a supermarket?
Independent businesses are usually more expensive than the larger supermarkets. This comes down to the fact that smaller businesses do not have the buying power of the larger chains. More simply, the smaller businesses are often offering better quality products.
Due to the fact that, here at The Little Eco Shop, we buy our food produce in bulk sacks we are still able to keep our prices affordable for the customer. We offer a range of organic and non-organic dried foods and liquids in order to keep our prices comparable to supermarkets.
