Welcome to Bare + Fair! I’m Mel, a mum of three and long-time resident of Woking. Like most people, I’m on a journey with sustainability and haven’t got it nailed but am trying to do what I can. After coming across the Zero Waste movement four years ago, I quickly realised there was need in our community for a refill shop and decided to start one myself – our values are in our name:

BARE – minimum packaging and maximum transparency
FAIR – to the planet, our global neighbours & our customers

One shop, two business awards and 68,000 refilled containers on, I’m so grateful for the local support that has allowed us to grow from a weekly market stall to a fully-fledged shop. You can find us at our store in The Peacocks Centre Woking, shop on our website or make use of our local delivery service. My hope continues to be that Bare + Fair can make it easy and affordable for anyone to get close to ‘zero waste’, wherever you happen to be on your sustainable journey.

Vive la Refillution!


P.S. It is my pleasure to speak at local schools, colleges, community groups and events about reducing plastic use and all things ‘zero waste’ – do get in touch if this is of interest.
