Celebrating their one-year anniversary this weekend, Lidia and Stacy, the team behind Zero Green on North Street, are almost in disbelief. Between the response from the community over the first year and the fact that an entire year has even gone by since their doors opened, it’s all a bit surreal.
The two met working together at the National Trust in Swindon and became great friends. After striving on their own to reduce their own plastic use, Lidia and Stacy saw an opportunity to go into business together. Bristol was the perfect place for them to open the store and Bedminster couldn’t be happier to have them!
Specialising in foodstuffs like pasta, baking products, spices and coffee, and plastic free alternatives to everyday home products, Zero Green has filled a hole in the Bristol retail landscape that aims to provide the city with a solution to the single-use plastic problem that has caused such a strain on our environment.
For Lidia and Stacy, this year has been a real community effort and they’re proud to call Bedminster home. Local customers are getting involved too, offering handy-man services and other bits of their time as well as Bristol makers and artisans providing product to fill the shelves.
Birthday celebrations will go throughout the weekend of 8-9 March, revealing a renovated space that is more than ready to take on year two and beyond. Come by and celebrate, have some cake, and take home some new products that help you step even more towards a plastic-free future.
