Anyone looking for a way of cutting down on plastic-wrapped groceries might like to check out Good Club.
Claiming to offer a zero waste shopping option, the company delivers a range of plastic-free groceries to your door.
Delivered in heavy duty, reusable Good Club plastic boxes, foods such as pasta, rice and breakfast cereals arrive in plastic pots which are returned to the company to be used again.
(Good Club claims that Life Cycle Analysis shows that recycled and recyclable plastic, which can be used time and time again, is the best option in terms of durability and weight – and therefore in CO2 production terms. For anyone who’d prefer it, there’s also a cardboard box delivery option.)
DPD delivers the boxes and Hermes collects them. A Good Club subscription includes one free delivery each month (the normal cost is £50 but it’s currently available for £40 and there’s a free trial month).
There’s a range of dried goods available, plus dairy-free milks, a small range of kitchen items, feminine hygiene products, bath and shower products and various other things.
Not everything is plastic free and it’s hard to know why some goods have been selected. That concern aside, the Good Club offers an interesting shopping option – and it’s being promoted by City to Sea, the organisation behind the Refill scheme.
Details are on the Good Club website.
