The bare alternative is a low waste lifestyle and refill shop bringing affordable eco-friendly shopping to Sheffield.

selling a variety of whole food alongside products to help you reduce waste and live a more sustainable life.

We offer a wide selection of whole food and cooking ingredient refills for making healthy meals, all available package-free, so make sure to BYOC (Bring Your Own Container). We also sell a range of natural cleaning products (laundry and washing up liquid, shampoo and conditioner, etc), everyday sustainable alternatives (bamboo toothbrushes, steel straws along with other cosmetic and hygiene products) and much more that will help you reduce waste and live a low impact lifestyle.

At The Bare Alternative, we don’t focus on organic produce or vegan-friendly only products. Our main concern is to make sustainable shopping affordable and accessible for everybody in the local community because, without us, people would not have the opportunity or choice to shop this way.
