We offer a variety of workshops and consultancy packages for those looking to open their own zero waste shop, or expand their existing shop to incorporate a zero waste dispensing element.

Next available date and workshop type:

Online 'Zoom' Zero Waste Shop Set up Workshop for Beginners - suitable for applicants that have started serious research at the start of their journey - it can also be useful for existing businesses that need help with branding and adding a zero waste dispensing element to their business.

2 x 4hrs sessions over two days - 2.30pm to 6.30pm (UK time) 15th - 16th September 2020

Introductory Price £150 +VAT (up to two participants)

This workshop is designed as a comprehensive overview of how to set up a zero waste shop from start to finish. As we will be in small groups, there will be plenty of chances to ask individual questions specific to your business. You will be asked to fill out details in your application regarding what you are looking to learn on the course prior to the workshop dates. We will try to cover as much as we can from everyone's request in the time that we have with you.

As we receive a high number of consultancy requests, we are asking for a short application from serious applicants to be filled out so that we can select the companies that are on the most similar stage on their journey to ensure the workshop is as relevant to you as possible.

Please note, we do not accept any companies on to our courses that have an existing zero waste shop within approx 10 mile radius to their proposed premises/existing premises (with the exception of some densely populated areas). Unfortunately, zero waste shopping is not yet 'mainstream' and we would like to protect existing zero waste shop owners.

The Clean Kilo owners know their stuff and are humble enough to share their expertise in a very professional, detailed and supportive way. Their workshop was invaluable to our business and I'm sure it will be to others setting up a zero-waste shop.

Wonderful opportunity which I felt very fortunate to be involved in. Tom and Jeanette shared their wealth of knowledge throughout what was a fantastic day. We took so many things away from the workshop and want to thank you very much!!
