Welcome to the Forrist
Forrist is the UK’s first ever plastic free, organic, plant-based online supermarket, located on Hornsey Road in Holloway, Islington. Our goal is to make conscious, sustainable shopping accessible to everyone, so that anyone can live a waste-free lifestyle. We’re always trying to push ourselves to do more and further embrace a conscious approach to shopping, like offering free essentials with every shop, such as reusable menstrual cups and organic coconut shaving oil, and hosting frequent giveaways and offers on our site as well as on our Instagram. We’re not radical eco-warriors, we just care about our planet and the people we share it with, and want our customers to enjoy the pleasure and fulfilment of sustainable, plastic-free, organic, plant-based shopping with convenience and confidence.

Plastic-free Chalk Farm
All of our produce is purchasable by weight, allowing you to save both waste and money by only adding as much as you need to your basket. Our dedication to waste-consciousness makes its way through the entire shopping process, as once you’ve filled your box, we will ensure your items are packaged as sustainably as possible, either in reusable glass jars, bottles and containers or in compostable bags and pouches. And if composting from home isn’t a possibility for you, allow us to handle it for you through our Earth to Earth takeback program – Back to the Forrist; wherein which you return 50 Forrist Kraft Bags and/or Pouches and receive a free reusable jar in return.
Not zero waste, Waste conscious
Zero waste is a term that’s thrown around a lot these days, but it’s a word we like to refrain from using here at the Forrist, as we feel it doesn’t do our mission justice. Zero waste has become such a buzzword that the meaning is often lost on people, and is seen as more of a quick selling point then a dedicated approach to sustainability. We prefer to use the term waste conscious. A waste conscious approach means not just opting for sustainable options, but being conscious of how and why they are sustainable and understanding the life-cycle of everything we buy. It’s about understanding the impact of our consumer habits and making better decisions where and when we can.
