Forget pre-packaged, shrink-wrapped and disposable everything, the zeitgeist is a-changing baby and Birmingham has joined the rallying call for consumer-powered revolution. Clean Kilo offers a new, ethically driven take on supermarket shopping, focussing on the want part and bypassing most of the waste. A true game-changer for the city, it forges fiercely forth in fully unpackaged style, into the future of local and global environmental awareness. Special dispensers serve up everything from flour to washing powder, but it’s not all about the photogenic filling stations. Enticing consumables like vegan cakes, free-flowing freshly squeezed OJ and Kombucha as well as fresh fruit and veg ‘just as nature intended’, make for one Insta-friendly shopping experience. So grab your mason jars and fill your good selves up with ethical optimism that is, almost literally, off the scale.
