The People's Pantry - a zero-waste refill service

Why?

The People’s Pantry is
about working together towards reduction …

of food miles, emissions, single-use plastics, exploitation,
food waste …
and the hassle for you

The UK produces 6.6 million tonnes of household food waste per year

70% of our plastic waste is packaging

UK supermarkets currently generate 900,000 tonnes of plastic packaging per year

Every 30 seconds, 30 double decker busloads of plastic waste are burned or dumped in developing countries

Less than 10% of household plastic packaging gets recycled in the UK. Globally, the UK is second only to the US in producing the most plastic waste per person

The People's Pantry are Lisa & Thomo

The People’s Pantry is just us,

Thomo and Lisa: a husband and wife team who have lived in Muswell Hill for over twenty years with our four children. It brings together the disparate skills of a technology consultant and a Food & Drink PR and journalist; and is founded on a strong sense of community, a love of good food and a determination to be part of the change. We can’t hope to be zero-waste perfect, but the more of us that are working imperfectly at it, the closer it gets.

💚 What better antidote to the consumer scrum of Black Friday than the pure joy spread by local Deliveroo scooter rider Massimiliano (Max) Ludolfi. Slide across and turn up your volume to hear him. . 🎶 You may not have seen him, but you will have heard him, belting out arias in your area. His rich, powerful voice swelling and fading, as he zooms around Muswell Hill and East Finchley delivering meals. . 🛵 As the sign on the back of his scooter reads, Max '❤️ s OPERA'. He started training at the London Institute of Music in September, in...

noun, REFILL RAPTURE [ree-fill rapcher]: ecstatic joy or delight; joyful ecstasy at the sight of a box of empties left out to be sterilised and reused. . 🙏🏻 Thank you so much to Andras for this weekly haul, left out for us on delivery day this morning. . 😯 #DYK that you can not only return our jars and bottles, but your other empties too (with lids please), which we clean and recirculate, tightening the closed loop still further and avoiding more manufacturing impact. . 💚 We are especially grateful for the larger sized ones. That’s when the Refill Rapture...
