Engrain – From shell location to package free destination!
There is now estimated to be over 200 zero waste shops in the UK (ecothriftyliving.com). Martek Zero Waste have been lucky enough to work with most of them but with the welcomed increasing number of zero waste stores, those looking to set up a store of their own are looking for ways to stand out in an increasingly popular sector.
We recently completed a project for the exciting new zero waste store: Engrain in Barnes, south west London. Started by sisters Bushra and Rumina, Engrain is Barnes’ first zero waste shop and features an outstanding array of products. From a plethora to nuts to delicious sweets and everything in between, Engrain offers one of the best product offering we’ve seen.
Martek Zero Waste not only supplied our market leading fully recyclable gravity and scoop dispensers, complete with stainless steel scoops, oil drums and glass spice jars but also bespoke manufactured all the joinery and advertising.
Consisting of EcoWalls, our pigeonhole unit, shelving, scales tables, signage and our EcoIsland. Our team of designers can produce and personalise anything required using sustainably sourced FSC grade wood, complete with stainless steel components – utilising our Carbon Smart Gold Award Credentials.
Working closely with Bushra and Rumina from the very conception of the idea, our team of designers worked closely with them to bring their idea to reality.
Bushra had this to say about working with Martek Zero Waste;
“The Martek team offered us great advice and expertise right from the first meeting at their offices all the way through to celebrating our opening with us. We are so happy with the shop design- a big thank you to the design team for coming up with the perfect store layout. All of our EcoPremium units and other displays have received such a great reception, they are the best in the business and we will definitely be staying in contact when it’s time to plan our next store!”
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.
Since opening in last weekend (22nd May), Engrain have received a lot of local 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!
