Sustainability has never been more important for a business. One member of the Chamber has made sustainability her business. In the heart of Weston-super-Mare, you will find Good & Proper Zero. The concept being that you bring your own containers to fill up with your kitchen essentials and cleaning products.
Clare, the owner, is keen to help people feel good about how they buy and what they eat and drink, her motto being, “Good for the planet, good for their body, good for their mood!”
The exciting news is, recently Theo Paphitis, best known from Dragons’ Den, awarded Good & Proper his Small Business Sunday #SBS in a tweet earlier in July, which made Clare’s week!
Clare started Good and Proper in Bristol Temple Meads two years ago. She was the first independent coffee shop inside the station. Since then, the coffee shop she’s owned in Weston for 14 years has been re-branded to join forces and taken a slightly different turn during the first lockdown in 2020.
Good and Proper is now Weston’s only zero waste store where you can fill all your pantry essentials from rice to oats, from shampoo to hand wash and some scrumptious chocolate in between, using any container you have to hand.
Clare is passionate about doing a little each day to reduce plastic waste and make our planet a better place for our children to grow up in.
Good and Proper is open 10-2 Wednesday & Thursday, and 10-3 on Saturday. As well as their enormous selection of zero-waste goods, you can choose from teas, coffees, juices, Kombucha, or iced coffees to take away, as well as a selection of lighter bites, and of course a slice of fresh cake.
You can find Good & Proper Zero on Regent Street, Weston-super-Mare, BS23 1JS.
