Based in Muswell Hill, The People’s Pantry is a mobile refill shop that operates from a refurbished milk float - affectionately nicknamed Ernie.

The People’s Pantry was crowned Britain’s greatest ‘Bricks & Clicks’ small business at The Small Awards and has been awarded a Haringey Council Community Carbon Fund to further its mission to reduce plastic waste.

The business is run by married couple Lisa Jones and Steven Thomas, who vet their products for their environmental impact, and are determined to make a difference to our planet by reducing plastic waste.
