After praising a major supermarket on their commitment to reduce plastic, we need to showcase local, environmentally friendly shops.

Sensing the wind of change, no doubt the innovation and enterprising spirit of these trailblazing, local shops have made SUPERMARKETS wake up.


But these corporations still do not offer the range of ethical, sustainable choices you can find in Grain and Sustain. A multi-award winning shop, their zero waste, bricks and mortar shop is based in Tolbooth Street, Kirkcaldy, Fife. The team want to help people make ethical, sustainable spending choices. They have over 500 products on refill to reduce plastic, as well as hundreds of handmade gifts and eco friendly products to help the switch from single-use to reusable. You can also access their products online.

Grain & Sustain (

There is plenty of parking on Kirkcaldy’s esplanade, overlooking the beautiful Firth of Forth. A short walk up Tolbooth Street and you are there.

Or visit their shops in Burntisland and Dalgety Bay.
