What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


I am totally fed up with the amount of plastic that I find all around me on a daily basis - it is killing our world and I do not want that legacy to be left for our children. I would like to open this shop to inspire others, to provide motivation and ideas for plastic free living and of course to provide somewhere for people to shop without having to deal with the copious amounts of 'devil material'.

One example to view... <iframe src="" width="476" height="476" style="border:none;overflow:hidden" scrolling="no" frameborder="0" allowTransparency="true" allowFullScreen="true"></iframe>

Having priced everything up, I am working loosely on the fact that it will cost roughly £15,000 to set up without rent/ business rates etc and therefore anything you can possibly donate to help me achieve this, would be so gratefully recieved.

I am hoping to provide, nuts, grains, rices, pastas, pulses, dried fruit, chocolate and seeds alongside local artisan product for sustainability i.e. honey, cloth santitary wear, sandwich wraps etc. I would like to offer sustainability from beginning to end and allow people to reduce their plastic footprint.

    Do hope you are able to raise enough to get your project up and running. We don't live far from fleet so you would definitely have us as customers. Have you looked at smaller places like Yateley?
