New shops like Slowood, in Kennedy Town, are making it easier than ever to embrace a zero-waste lifestyle. With over 100 brands on its shelves, this eco-friendly lifestyle store carries everyday essentials, from organic groceries to biodegradable homeware. There are also refill stations for bulk goods. Bring your own containers, as there’s zero packaging. Slowood also walks the talk when it comes to design, using discarded Styrofoam and upcycled wooden wine cases as display shelves.
