We are a family run business in Stourbridge Ryemarket. Our ethos is to supply foods & household items with as little damage to the environment as possible. We stock ethically sourced, mostly organic, dried food items in bulk such as pasta, rice, lentils, nuts & cereals. We work with suppliers to ensure our goods arrive in large paper sacks or recyclable/compostable packaging and our customers bring their own containers to fill or use paper bags. We also source as local as possible with bread & cakes from a Cradley bakery, veg from an Organic farm in Kinver, beer brewed in Lye & cider from Halfpenny Green along with other craft items made locally. Eco Maniax also have many vegan products such as cheeses and butter all in compostable packaging. There is also a chilled section with various marinated olives & garlic & dairy cheeses.
We have a detergent refill area where you can bring your empty bottles to fill with washing up liquid, hand wash and laundry products amongst others. All made by a co operative in Oxford called Sesi and are environmentally friendly & vegan. They are dispensed by tap from the 20 litre containers they arrive in, and when empty they are collected with our next delivery, cleaned and refilled. This is known as a circular system with no waste. There is also a choice of refillable shampoo & body products.
Many household items contain plastics that will take hundreds of years to break down and will harm the environment so we have alternatives to many of these such as toothbrushes, toothpaste, washing up sponges, washable cloth sanitary towels & much much more. We keep our prices at an affordable level as we believe zero waste shopping should be accessible for all and many of our prices are very comparable or cheaper than supermarkets!
Kids parties are known for causing much waste from paper plates & cups, disposable cutlery and tablecloths. Eco Maniax also have a party hire kit for up to 30 with BPA free plastic reusable plates, cutlery, cups, jugs etc.
We are open Mon- Sat 9.30 - 4.30 and also offer a click & collect service where dry goods will be packed in paper bags and in donated, thoroughly washed out containers for detergents etc.
