Sponsored; Zero Store

Last year, Birmingham saw its first Zero waste supermarket, The Clean Kilo open in the Custard Factory in Digbeth. It has been successful, but for me it was just to far to regularly travel to.

Gifted experience: Palms Bar, Coventry

Bean and Leaf Coffee House, Coventry

A great trip to Bean & Leaf Coffee House in #Coventry yesterday with my friend.
