Sero Waste, Newport
Package free retailing gets a stylish introduction in Newport!
As sustainable retail continues to gain traction in the UK, with new zero waste stores opening every week, Martek Zero Waste was lucky enough to work with the brilliant Sero Waste, the fist zero waste shop in Newport.
Started by Liz Morgan and Laura Parry as part of a vision to reduce plastic waste and consumer impact on the environment. They recognised that it is not without difficulty trying to start and maintain a plastic free lifestyle in today’s world. They wanted to make plastic-free shopping as convenient as popping to the supermarket, and as affordable too! Read full article.
To do this, they enlisted Martek’s help to produce a bespoke, eye catching display for their new store in a gorgeous grade II listed barn within the National Trust property, Tredegar House.
Liz had this to say about working with Martek Zero Waste;
“Martek fitted out our zero-waste shop with two bespoke Eco Premium units complete with 28 gravity dispensers and 6 scoop bins in each. We went with Martek because we needed something functional, beautiful and completely free-standing as our shop is housed in a Grade II listed barn and we were unable to fix anything to the wall. These units span one wall and are the main feature of our shop. It was great to deal with Martek Zero Waste from the beginning of the process and the initial phone call all the way through to the delivery of the finished article.”
Able to assist any retailer from initial design consultation through to delivery and installation, Martek produce all their units at their main facility in South London with sustainably sourced FSC grade materials and are accredited with the hugely sought-after Carbon Smart Gold Award which demonstrates the practical actions taken to actively reduce their environmental impact.
Sero’s eye catching premium display of gravity and scoop dispensers is filled with great products such as dried fruit, flour, cereals, beans, nuts, seeds and much more. Martek’s competitively priced range of gravity bins and scoop bins allows shoppers to stock up their cupboard without the plastic packaging.
Since opening in March, Sero have received a lot of national attention for their brilliant, aesthetic store and continue to go from strength to strength. Be sure to follow their social pages to stay up to date with their exciting developments!
