. . . is the name of a new a zero packaging shop, which is now open inside Trowbridge Town Hall. Trowbridge woman Leyla Bakali-laughton’s new venture We Are Undressed will sell food, household items and beauty products, but instead of being pre-packaged, the loose products will go straight into customers’ own jars, tubs and bags to refill again and again.
Leyla, 25, is on a mission to tackle climate change by opening the first zero waste not-for-profit shop in the town and the venture has received widespread support from the town and beyond. Inspired by having visited zero packaging shops in Bristol, the former St Augustines pupil will run the shop with volunteers and hopes to be open six days a week.
Leyla says “The easiest way to reduce plastic use in your home is to shop smarter by thinking about what you need to buy and if it can be reused or reduced. We will stock all the dry goods you’re likely to find in your kitchen cupboards, oats, pasta, rice and baking goods, and some liquids, like shampoos and cooking oils, and also products like toothbrushes.”
