More about us

The condensed version

Harmless Store was founded by Tami Jarvis in April 2018. Her vision was to create an ‘outreach shop’ where she could talk to the local community about the benefits of switching to a vegan lifestyle as well as reducing plastic and other forms of waste. At the same time she wanted to provide the tools to sustain these ideals by offering quality everyday products, sourced from suppliers who met her ethical and environmental standards.

The shop was immediately successful and quickly outgrew the tiny Yellow Shed at the Blue House Yard. Exactly a year later she launched a Crowdfunder campaign to raise the capital required for the move, and succeeded.

It took the rest of 2019 to secure the location, refurbish and transport everything to our present location along Tottenham Lane. We proudly reopened at the beginning of 2020 with more space, more products and more to offer!
