*WE ARE CHANGING OUR NAME*
You may have noticed our logo has changed and if you look closely at some of our descriptions you’ll notice a slight name change.
I recently received a legal letter informing me I have made a ‘a deliberate attempt to leverage off the success’ of another store and I have taken part in a ‘deceptive trade practice’ by using their ‘well-established’ trademarked name.
When I started this pop-up over a year and a half ago, my intention was to provide my local community with a way to shop packaging-free and hopefully convert a few more people to living with less waste. It did not occur to me to register a trademark or to do more than search the web to ensure there were no other businesses trading under the same name as me. Which at the time there were not.
I have been overwhelmed by the support and demand for what we do and this has meant we’ve been able to take our pop-up all over the county, meeting more people and helping make change in other communities. After my initial reaction of shock and anger reading this letter I have had time to reflect. Although it is sad that the zero-waste community is now seeing the sort of behaviour we have grown to expect from the cut-throat, corporate, world, we are bigger than this.
What our pop-up shop represents, the work we do and the change we make is more than the name we operate under. So, although a new name is coming, I know that through the support of all of you, we will continue working towards making change and taking collective action regardless of what we’re called.
So here’s to the a new chapter we hope you’ll join us.
