I stumbled upon this boutique several weeks ago. One of the best finds for me in Seaham so far. Not only does the chap sell a decent selection of eco friendly goods, but the produce he grows is varied and at a reasonable price. I am particularly keen on the chillies and tomatoes. Also, this proprietor is not just a shop, but is a knowledgeable guide to Seaham and the surrounding areas.

Fabulous Zero Waste shop. This was an amazing find yesterday, a lovely shop with a range of eco friendly products (soap, shampoo etc) plus all your spices, beans, cereals but without all the unnecessary packaging. Very friendly owners, only too willing to help. Take your own containers and buy as much or as little as you need. Looking forward to my next visit.
