Hi, I'm Rachael, the founder of One Small Step - a zero-waste store, wholeheartedly dedicated to helping tackle the severe plastic-pollution problem that our beautiful home planet currently faces.

Starting One Small Step was a response to my own values and witnessing the damaging impact that we have on our planet, especially to our oceans, in the ways which we consume and then dispose of items without a second thought. I was certain that there had to be a way in which we could have less of a negative impact on the environment and really wanted to create a positive solution to this that could be easily implemented into the lives of others.


I am a strong believer that together we can all make the world a better place by making small changes. Giving ourselves the time and space to easily and conveniently be our greatest selves when it comes to loving the planet and caring for our environment.

The physical shop is based in Altrincham Market, Greater Manchester and sells a variety of unpackaged organic food, home cleaning and personal care liquid refills, as well as a wide variety of alternatives to single-use plastic for all areas of your life. I wanted to create a space for us all to easily and conveniently be our best selves when it comes to loving the planet and caring for our environment.

We aren't striving for unrealistic perfection here, just towards helping you to take one small step at a time towards your next sustainable product switch and working to reduce the amount of plastic that reaches our oceans.
