Earthlove

Reducing our carbon footprint is one way to show our planet how much we love it, but we can do so much more. Our aim is to also increase our oxygen levels.

ASK FOR YOUR FREE SPEKBOOM CUTTING
In an effort to offset our carbon footprint for importing certain products, we offer all in-store customers spekboom cuttings. (PS: we only import when we can’t source that specific product or suitable counterpart locally.)

When in store, please ask for your free spekboom cutting. This superplant helps fight air pollution and is so easy to grow – you can even make vegan brownies with it. Yum yum!

ONLINE ORDER DELIGHT
All online orders will soon come with a special compostable ‘thank you’ note – one that you can literally plant and then watch it grow. Depending on the season and seeds available, you could receive anything from an edible flower to a ‘handy herb’ seed card.

SHOP ZERO INITIATIVES
Currently we give the ‘earth love’ by being involved in the following projects (f you have any other projects for us, please email us at info@shopzero.co.za):

1.) A total of 353kg of trash was cleared off the beach from 5 of our beach cleaning activities in 2018.
2.) From June to November 2018 we helped customers divert 38kg of plastic from landfill by collecting their ecobricks.
3.) We visit schools and host talks on plastic pollution.
4.) We have met with a consultant to learn how to offset our carbon footprint as we want to integrate more sustainable logistics into our operations.
5.) We support Greenpop via Reforest Fest and now also sell their tree rings (see below).
