About Us

We (Sarah and Belinda) opened Skopa, The Zero Waste Place in the heart of Wirksworth in Derbyshire in January 2020.

We both live in Wirksworth and were brought together by our common goal to reduce waste by opening a packaging free shop that offers something for everyone with sustainability at its heart.

Skopa sells a large range of dried foods (such as pulses, grains, cereals, dried fruit, herbs & spices, coffee and loose leaf teas).

Also available is a selection of oils, vinegars and chocolate goodies and savoury snacks.

A completely zero waste cleaning product range is available called Miniml (check-out our customer recommendations on our facebook page!).

We also sell household and everyday items that help you reduce unnecessary packaging or the need for single use plastic and other items that otherwise would end up in landfill.

Our shop has a large range of modern dispensers plus smaller containers with scoops.

Our aim is to source as many products as locally as possible – that way we reduce CO2 emissions and support local producers at the same time!

We understand the importance of sourcing our products carefully with affordability and sustainability in mind.

Our plan is to add to the range of sustainably sourced products that are available in Wirksworth and we are working as closely as possible with our fellow traders to achieve this.

We are still learning and are excited to take you on this journey with us!


        We very much look forward to seeing you soon at Skopa.
