More about us and our mission

Did you know?
Between 1950 and 2015, plastic production increased from 2.3 million tons to 448 million tons?

Every year, 8 million tons of plastic waste ends up in the sea: this is equivalent to 16 garbage bags on every metre of coastline in the world.

We love to tell you about our mission.

Because you can do your groceries differently!

How?

By shopping at a shop where you won't find any packaging materials besides glass. There are possibilities to buy both your dry food and liquid products from dispensers.

Where?

Oh wait, we noticed that too. Those options are pretty sparse. That's why we have a plan!

Onze missie?

With a sustainable green bus we are the first waste free grocery shop on wheels in the Netherlands. It's the SRV concept (Dutch grocery shop in a van), but with a twist. At our shop, you do the shopping in front of the bus instead of in the bus. Our 4 routes you can find here. Next to our routes we also attend markets on Saturdays. Here you can find our planning.

By means of the circular model (bring your own packaging material) a significant reduction of waste is realized. In this way Potjes & Deksels supports the goal of the government of the Netherlands to make circularity the benchmark.

Our goal?

 

Our goal is to make it possible for consumers and companies to reduce packaging waste. Firstly via our zero waste shop on wheels, and secondly for a B2B tailor made jar. Because packaging you do not use, you do not need to throw away as waste.
