Since April 2018 our tiny shop has been offering an increasingly broad range of basic provisions, personal care and household items. As we all work together to reduce our dependance on plastic and therefore the vast quantities of waste arising from this, Loose can help you make small, but significant changes to your daily shopping habits.

Gloucester Street is fast becoming Stroud’s low impact destination with a good selection of small independent retailers, and while we are somewhat off the main drag we are well worth a visit. Located  in up and coming ‘Downtown’ Stroud, our little shop offers a range of packaging free foods and other household and personal care goodies. Please bring along your containers (including plastic) to take away a delicious, range of grains, pulses, seeds & nuts, dried fruit etc and let us fill them for you. The price per kilo or litre are the same,  regardless of quantity. All our ‘loose’ produce is ORGANIC, other items are Fair-trade or Ethically sourced. Upcycled packaging is available should you need it.
