How it works - the Local Zero process

If you’ve been following us for while, then you will hopefully know that we will soon be launching our brand new concept in shopping locally and sustainably. If you’ve just stumbled across our website and haven’t a clue what Local Zero is all about, then this blog is for you!

We’ve had a few questions about exactly how Local Zero works, so we thought we would put together a detailed explanation of our process, so that you can fully understand how our service will work once our retail website goes live.

The Local Zero 5 Step Process

  1. Browse our website and choose from a range of groceries and household items, available both as packaged and as refills.
    Our product range will include a variety of store cupboard essentials, cleaning products and eco-friendly alternatives, available from our carefully selected local suppliers.

  2. Choose your delivery slot. We work on a 2 day turnaround, so you need to allow a minimum 48 hours from point of order, to delivery time. Once you have checked out your order, sit back, relax and put your feet up, and wait for your shopping to arrive!

  3. Your order will be fulfilled by our local suppliers into reusable/recyclable packaging. We are on a mission to reduce waste and help you live a more eco-friendly lifestyle, so we have conducted hours of research and development so make sure we are using the most sustainable containers possible.

  4. Local Zero will deliver your shopping to your door. Shopping with local retailers has never been easier with our easy to use website. No need to spend time travelling to different shops, we will have them all in one place!
    Once fulfilled, we will personally deliver your shopping in our zero-emissions van.

  5. Once you have decanted your refill goods, the last step in our process is for us to collect our reusable Local Zero containers, along with any other packaging you need to dispose of for cleaning / recycling. Our branded containers are thoroughly cleaned and sterilised, ready to be put back into our fulfilment system. Where possible all other packaging can be composted at home, or disposed of through your household recycling programme.
