New Brighter Site For Popular Ryde Zero Waste Store Her Whey

A popular and eco-friendly Ryde business has relocated to its new, brighter premises in the town.

Her Whey has moved from its former home on Cross Street to a new High Street location.

The business has become a cherished part of the town's community for its 'reduce, reuse and recycle' mantra.

Co-owners Annie Smith and Yve Woodfield wanted to move to a more prominent location to spread their ethos within the hub of the community.

Annie said:

"We've been able to engage the community more (since relocating), which was the point of moving.

"All of our suppliers are ethical — everything in the shop is bought in the UK, and in cases where it is sourced abroad by the suppliers we ensure there is no slavery, human trafficking or negative impacts upon forestry or oceans.

"There are many ways in which people can make a difference — for example, if everybody just reused and refilled one bottle rather than recycling it, it would make a huge difference."

Among new items in-store is the Chocolate Tree range, an organic Scottish craft chocolate, which promotes tree planting that is deliberately combined with agriculture on the same piece of land.

Her Whey, based at 28 High Street in Ryde, is open from Tuesday to Friday, 9am to 4pm, and Saturday from 10am to 4pm.
