The Clean Kilo are the largest zero waste supermarket in the UK and a local, interactive farm shop in the city. Customers are able to to refill food, cleaning products and toiletries to reduce the amount of plastic that ends up in landfill, beaches and oceans.
The Clean Kilo posted the below on their Facebook page:
"We are in the final stages of negotiations for our second premises in... Bournville! Exact location to be announced when we get the keys.
"Our second project has been made possible soley through the funding we received from winning the FedEx small business grant award and all of our own personal lifetime savings; so we need all the help we can get.
"In order to ensure our plastic free product range is just as good (if not better) than our Digbeth store we have to invest in a large number of high-cost dispensers and equipment.
"We operate as a social enterprise and so we need as much help as possible to get us open before the end of our 6 week rent free period - 21st September.
"We would love to have help with a whole range of jobs from painting and signage to carpentry, metal work and labelling etc.
"If you or someone you know will be able to help, either volunteering or professionally, please email us at email@example.com or direct message on social media.
"Final request - we are firm believers of reuse and as with our current shop, we would like to aim for 90% of the shop to be upcycled! If you know anyone getting rid of old floorboards, doors, scaffold boards, fridges etc, please get in touch! Or if you have a van for us to borrow/hire to collect the above!
Thanks so much for all your support; we are so excited to be given the opportunity to expand zero waste shopping in our community!"
