One World Shop is a long established city centre retail shop and social enterprise specialising in fairtrade, ethical, organic and vegan products.
We sell a wide range of packaged organic and fairtrade coffees, teas, biscuits, rice, spices, chocolate and other food produce. We also sell handmade crafts, toys, jewellery, bags and accessories, rugs and homeware. We are commitment to supporting farmers and communities in low income countries in the south and have a long history with many of our producers.
We are situated beside St John’s Church at the corner of Princes Street and Lothian Road in Edinburgh’s west end.
Commitment to sustainability
We are constantly trying to reduce our environmental impact and improve the sustainability of our organisation.
We have replaced all our packaging, sellotape, bubble wrap and plastic bags with non-plastic alternatives and we are encouraging our suppliers to do the same. We have introduced a wide range of plastic-free and recycled homeware products in the shop and encourage our customers to switch to non plastic wherever possible.
We’re achieving these goals
- Actively working to reduce carbon emissions
- Reducing plastic packaging
- Using electric vehicles or cargo bikes for shop and customer deliveries
