Crowdfunding Opportunity : £10k sought - here is the link
Coming soon to the High Street - with your support!
Hello I'm Rosie and have dreamed about opening a shop for years. Having listened to the community I decided a zero waste, plastic free social enterprise was the way to go.
So what is this 'Zero Waste' idea all about ??
As a new business start up for Dunblane, 'Weigh Ahead', will bring a new concept to shopping on the High Street. A zero waste, plastic free shop enabling sustainable living. We will stock eco-friendly, sustainable products that will be sold without plastic packaging. By setting up as a social enterprise it will also bring the opportunity for profits to be re-invested back into the community. These profits will go back in various ways, by promoting environmental issues, recycling, Ecobricks projects, and by providing outreach programmes and sustainable living workshops for the community, with a particular emphasis on reaching people who would find practising a zero waste lifestyle most of a challenge.
As many products as possible will be sourced from other social enterprises to support the circular economy, and from local / Scottish artisans with the odd more exotic product that will, of course, have been ethically checked out before being placed on the shelves.
If you have any small up-cycled or other suitable products you think we could stock, please get in touch.
This short film follows the survey which Rosie conducted to find out what people wanted to see and buy, with a follow up invitation to anyone who might want to be part of this exciting initiative by way of a Crowdfunder
