encouraging a zero waste way of living

Zero is the first completely plastic free store and café in Tunbridge Wells! Our aim back in 2019 was to provide a zero waste environment for our customers offering food, household refills and more, however since Covid-19 hit we have had to adapt our business model to suit the demands of our customers. As food sales have declined rapidly we have stepped away from selling bulk foods completely, and instead launched our brand new community hub:

The Ethical Emporium! 

We still work with a zero waste florist for beautiful flowers without the cellophane during the Spring and Summer months, all grown within 10 miles of our store!

Come and hang out with us in our beautiful café space and have some delicious home-made vegetarian  food and drinks, including lots of vegan options!

Whether you are looking for an eco solution to your shopping or a place to chill with some like minded individuals, we have it covered.

why zero waste?


“You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference and you have to decide what kind of a difference you want to make.”
—Jane Goodall
