Greenwise Greengrocers in Fetcham has just celebrated a very successful year, following on from this Fetch’em From The Cupboard is opening a new zero plastic shop in Ashtead.

The new shop is set to open this march and allows customers to bring their own containers and fill them up with a variety of products paying for the exact amount they want.

Fetch’em From The Cupboard will sell products such as cereals, pasta, nuts, drinks and spices. It also sells items such as cleaning and dental products as well as things like hand cream and soap.

Founder of the zero plastic business, Tracy Harwood said: “People are finding the alternative way to shop really fun and are excited about doing their bit for the environment and their community.

The Greenwise Greengrocer concession will remain in Fetcham and Mrs Harwood will be working between there and the new store, alongside staff and her new partner and investor Elsje Kichenbrand, who will help run the Ashtead store.

Fetch’em has raised £720 towards a new Nutramilk machine that will allow customers to make their own nut milk while they shop. The business is still looking for donations from the community to get the business set up with everything that is needs and aims to raise £10,000.

Mrs Harwood said: “We are a small business and a local one, trying to serve the interests of the community and the environment. We want to expand the range of products we can provide and we are hoping the community can help us do that even by donating a small amount.

You can help support the business here.
