We’re delighted to announce that Sero Zero Waste have opened their new shop in our lesser barn, providing the perfect opportunity for visitors and locals alike to discover more about the world of zero-waste living.

Sero Zero Waste, the first zero waste shop in Newport, has found its home in the grounds of Tredegar House’s home farm. The shop, which was founded by local friends Liz and Laura, aims to make plastic-free shopping as convenient and affordable as possible. 

Customers can refill their soap, shampoo and sanitiser bottles from Sero’s refill station.

Selling all kinds of packet-free household items, from fresh sourdough to crunchy crisps, Sero is the ideal place to learn more about the steps you can take to effortlessly reduce the amount of waste you produce during your weekly shop. 

" As the National Trust is a conservation charity, we’re thrilled to have Newport’s first zero waste shop based at Tredegar House. I’m so pleased that we could provide a space for such an important resource for our local community. Sero will also be a wonderful, vibrant addition to our Home Farm area. I’m ready with my jars and bottles for refilling!"

The new shop has not only expanded Sero’s existing offer of plastic-free items, but they will also sell fresh milk and locally grown flowers, as well as giving customers the opportunity to recycle more difficult items such as soft plastics and make-up containers. And the vision doesn’t end there, as Liz and Laura plan to create a vital resource for sustainable living.

" We will take our time making sure the space is everything it can be to help the people of Newport make sustainable changes to shopping habits and we're looking forward to engaging more with the community and seeing how we can help in other ways too - we have plans to run workshops, host repair cafe's and clothes swaps amongst other things and are always open to discussions with other local businesses who share our passion for sustainability and supporting Newport."
- Laura Parry, co-founder of Sero Zero Waste
