Root’s Refill Pantry is a fab new zero waste shop in Bowness-on-Windermere which I have visited a few times with my young son. It is such a great ship for stocking up on things without all the plastic packaging you find in many grocery stores.  The shop has a range of dried goods that you can weigh out including herbs and spices, sweets, cereals, pasta, gluten-free products and more. It also sells crisps in biodegradable packaging, cleaning & laundry products and locally made beauty products too. 

I loved how the weighing system was really well set out and easy to use. Great fun for kids and parents to do together. but watch out there is a range of sweets that your children will want to weigh out too! Mine did! 

There seems to be a trend at the moment for zero waste stores and it is great to see them popping up all around the Lake District and Cumbria where is is often harder to find smaller specialist stores for food and other household products.
