We’re ringing in the new year with our brand new UCOOK Pantry Boxes and we couldn’t be more proud! Hello 2021 and Happy New Year to all our customers and readers!
Back with a bang!
We are looking forward to another passionate year of supplying ethical, sustainable, cruelty-free and mindful products to you and your home. All of our products are either 100% biodegradable or reusable and sourced to promote your health and that of our beautiful planet. Shop Zero™ supports and encourages your need for sustainable, plastic-free living every step of the way. Together we are the collective that drives change with every eco-conscious choice we make.
We are always looking to collaborate with like-minded businesses that support our ethos. That is why Shop Zero™ has started the year with an exciting collaboration with UCOOK Market Boxes. The UCOOK Market Box concept was developed to help boost the local food system by empowering local entrepreneurs and small farmers. They aim to work together to forge a closer connection between local customers, farmers and food producers. By supplying customers with local seasonal (organic where possible) and ethical produce, UCOOK Market Boxes can directly grow the local food system.
Not only are customers supplied with beautiful produce, but they are also able to make informed decisions about the food they eat. UCOOK also supplies the story behind every food producer so you know exactly how your food was grown or made.
Shop Zero™ and UCOOK Pantry Boxes Collab
Along with their current Market Boxes, UCOOK are now offering versatile Pantry Boxes as Add Ons, specially curated by Shop Zero™. Any of these UCOOK Pantry Boxes will make a welcome addition to your pantry staples. Orders for our ‘Essential Box’ are already open where you need to place your order one week prior to delivery. Please place your order from UCOOK here by 12pm Thursday 7 January 2021 to receive your Shop Zero™ ‘Essentials Box’ by Thursday 14 January 2021.
Shop Zero™ have created four UCOOK Pantry Boxes to choose from as Add Ons to your weekly UCOOK Farmer’s Market Box:

By purchasing this box, you will be planting trees by simply sipping on the beautiful coffee you’ll receive. For every 3kg Rain Forest Alliance Certified beans sold, one tree is planted by Greenpop.

Create your dream pantry by decanting them into your own glass jars.
Most commercially sold teabags melt microplastics into your cup as they contain polypropylene woven in the paper to hold their shape and seal the edges. Not only is this toxic for the body, but damaging for the environment. Go loose leaf and ditch single-use tea bags! Tea-huggers will love brewing the perfect cup and creating a morning ritual with our cute reusable hemp and cotton tea bag.
Be sure to have a look-see on the UCOOK’s Market Box website for this box’s order and delivery dates.
