We are Kate and Pete (and Hope), and are proud to be part of the Taunton & Somerset community.

We want to give the people of Taunton a positive option for shopping ethically, organically and packaging free.

We see Lesser Litter as part of the solution to the huge environmental issues we, as a community and as a planet, face.

We believe in reusing packaging, circular supply and supporting sustainable organic farming practices.

Shopping ethically should be accessible for everyone. We firmly believe this should be more economical, both for the individual and for the environment
