Food Loose is an ethically sourced refill shop at 16 Portland Street, Cheltenham, on a mission to help our local community reduce their plastic waste and to promote a fairer economy. We do this by purchasing through worker co-ops, certified fair trade routes or sourcing directly from the manufacturer, with a focus on organic products. The idea is that customers bring their own containers to store and we refill them with our food and household products, helping them to reduce their plastic waste.
We sell a range of food items including, rice, pasta, chocolate buttons, dried fruits and nuts, oils and vinegars on tap, herbs and spice, as well as a range of household products including, laundry liquids, washing up liquid, toilet cleaner, hand sanitiser and much more! We also sell a range of everyday items and toiletries to help you live a planet friendly lifestyle.
We have now launched a Click and Collect service through our website (www.foodloose.co.uk), all orders are packed in food-safe paper bags, ready for you to collect. Delivery is also available to households self-isolating within a 5km radius of the shop.
Food Loose also comes under the umbrella of Global Footsteps, a local educational charity focusing on sustainability which links grassroots communities around the world, currently supporting projects in Africa as well as working with other local charities to help vulnerable people in Cheltenham. All Food Loose profits go to help fund other projects the charity supports.
