The Eco Maniax Ethos
We are a local family business. At Eco Maniax our ethos is to help our customers towards living a more sustainable lifestyle by reducing the amount of plastic and packaging in their weekly shop.
We aim to source our products from local suppliers where possible and strive to ensure they are produced ethically and fair trade where we can. This is all served in a relaxed and informal manner in which we are sure our customers appreciate as opposed to the hustle and bustle of the mainstream supermarkets.
Eco Maniax Suppliers

Eco Maniax Shopping Etiquette
Shopping steps -
1. Place your container on the scales & press ‘I have an empty container’. This will print you a label with a barcode & weight to place on your container. This can be used over and over, every time.
2. Fill your container.
3. Scan the first label barcode on the scanner by the scales. Place your container on the scales & press ‘I have a filled container’
4. Find the product on the simple to use touchscreen menu, press the green button & hey presto, it gives you a label with the price & product details, stick that on your container and take it to the till. Simple!
