The Sustainable Weigh
Now Open - 13 Castle Square
We are currently continuing to trade through the ongoing uncertainty. Please follow us on our social media channels for updates on our opening hours and availability.
Search 'sustainable weigh' on Facebook or Instagram to find us.
We do not anticipate moving back to a 'self-service' model for at least 12 months but we remain happy for customers to bring their own containers to the shop to be refilled by us. The same applies for all liquid refills which we can complete as normal for you.
Check out our fortnightly podcast featuring guests, discussion, news and whatever else we can cram into half an hour in front of a microphone!
What is the Sustainable Weigh?
The Sustainable Weigh is a shop based in Caernarfon, North Wales. We're here to bring sustainable food and living items to the High Street in a bid to help you 'Change your World'.
Why do you talk about 'Change your World'?
Right now nearly all of us are living and consuming in a way that is unsustainable. Humanity is using to many resources, too quickly. By shopping differently we can start to make the small changes that can add up to a big difference.
So you're one of those 'Plastic Free' shops?
No, we're not. We love plastic free and zero waste shops but that isn't what we've set out to be. Our aim is to offer options that help to tackle a range of issues which includes our reliance on single use plastic but covers other things to. Check out our Sustainable definition page to find out more on this.
What do you sell then?
We sell a range of packaging free, refillable, dry goods such as pasta, race, cereals, seeds, nuts, dried fruit and beans. We also sell local products such as breads and cakes, alcohol and more. On top of all that we also sell non food items such as Shampoo Bars, Beeswax Wraps and whole host of other great things deisgned to help you live in a more sustainable way.
Is that all I need to know?
Well, we also have a fortnightly podcast discussing a whole load of relevant issues and there's an irregular blog too, both of which aim to help spread the word and encourage more people to make meaningful sustainable changes. Check out the latest editions of each to find out more.
