Affordable Refill Shopping: A Price Comparison

We price compared this shop from one of our regular customers to a chain supermarket. This shop for common essential items was £29.75 here at Zero Muda but would have been £45.90 if the same quantities were purchased at the supermarket, a savings of 35%! These containers have been refilled at least 12 times over our first year of being open which has saved 180 pieces of single use plastic. Not only that but the savings of £194 over the year in comparison to shopping at the supermarket.
