New Day Zero Shop to Open in Buxton

A new shop which aims to reduce both packaging and food waste, is opening in Buxton in time for Christmas. Holly and Mark Day are opening the doors of Day Zero, at 30 High Street, on Saturday 1st December.

They aim to offer the community a wide selection of foods, a refill station for household and personal cleaning liquids, and also re-usables which will replace disposable items (such as safety razors, bamboo toothbrushes, and sanitary pads). They will also provide a Water Refill point.

Mark and Holly said: ‘We are creating something that we ourselves wanted to see, somewhere to shop without packaging, at a reasonable price and where you know you’re making a difference step by step. This isn’t about us (Holly and Mark) it’s about ‘us’, all of us. Every one of us is a piece of the same jigsaw and we really feel the need to build a strong sense of community where everyone knows they’re bringing about change. We’ll work with you to find out what you want to see in the shop and are already working hard to source the right products, as ethically as we can and at the best value we can offer.’
