We’ve all seen the heart-breaking pictures; plastic containers floating in the sea, forests on fire, melting icebergs, wildlife on the brink of extinction and the question we’ve all had to ask ourselves is: What can one person do to avert global catastrophe? One independent shop in Buxton has been helping us to make small but invaluable changes since 2018. Day Zero brought refill and zero-waste shopping to the area and they’ve now made it even easier by launching their brand new online shop, offering deliveries and Click and Collect locations across the High Peak.
Day Zero’s online shop has over 300 products to choose from. The High Peak’s first Electric bike home delivery service, in partnership with eLOV, currently operates in Buxton and standard delivery is available (by electric car) to other areas in the High Peak. Click and Collect is also available at locations in Chinley, Whaley Bridge, Chapel and at the shop in Buxton.
Many of us have our shopping delivered these days, either as a result of the pandemic or just to find more family time. Instead of making that default click to your usual supermarket, Day Zero give you a chance to make a more ethical choice with all of the convenience.
They stock a wide range of everyday food and household products you use in the home, with a variety of wholefoods, pasta, rice, dried fruit, nuts, spices, oils, cereals, baking ingredients, coffee and a range of loose teas as well as a range of bath and body accessories, shampoo, conditioner and body wash. You’ll also find fair trade, vegan and raw chocolate treats too. For household cleaning, Day Zero have everything you need with cleaning products on refill.
The shop isn’t a gimmick. Owners Holly and Mark now have a young family, both with a background in conservation, so the future of the planet is a way of life for them. They do their research and only use suppliers they can trust. As well as cutting out the plastic, they’re careful not to stock products containing palm oil, an industry that contributes heavily to deforestation.
“The online shop features a great range of our most popular, everyday products and we hope to expand our delivery service to cover more areas soon”, said Mark.
Opening times are Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday 10am – 5pm, Sunday 11am – 3.30pm. Wednesday CLOSED.
