All products sold at Dolly's will be entirely plastic free. With all products sold in either recycled packaging that can be recycled easily again in our loacl community or with containers customers can use again and again. Foods that will be sold by weight, buying just the amount of ingredients you need with no wastage. Come in with a recipe or stock the cupboards with what you need for the month, there will be no need to thrown unwated product away to add to landfill. There will also be a selection of plasic free, environmentlly friendly products. Such as reusable straws, plasic free toothbrushes, produce bags, soaps, household cleaning supplies and much more. Dolly's wont sell fresh fruit and vegetables as this is already provided very well close by.

What we'll deliver:

  • Plasic free shopping.
  • Buy just what you need - no excess for landfill.

Why it's a great idea:

I have been searching for some time to find somewhere to buy products like these in my local towns and city and from searching both online and social media found that that is very little there as well as many other searching for the same products too. Often resulting in buying online which in turn usually arrives cased in plastic anyway for shipment, making it actually less environmental than shopping locally. Dolly's will provide both a place to buy environmentally friendly reusable products for all the family conveniently.

Steps to get it done:

  • Marketing materials
  • Premises
  • Stock
