The Village Green is all about helping people shop in an eco-friendly and sustainable way.
The new store combines all of the products Ashley and her family use themselves to make their everyday routine less wasteful, and a little more sustainable.
Everything they sell is tried, tested and adored by them, so they can make it simple and affordable for everyone to make some small changes too.
They try to celebrate other local small businesses at every opportunity and each product they stock is thoughtfully sourced from only the best growers, makers and creators.
Self-described "Northern lass" Ashley (originally from Burnley, but now hailing from Prestbury) is the owner of The Village Green, located on South Street, Alderley Edge.
Like many, lockdown provided Ashley with an opportunity to re-evaluate her priorities and what she wants from life. From there, the germ of an idea began to grow into Ashley's vision of an eco-living store. She officially launched the business last year, mainly offering refills online via home delivery.
It's been growing so well that branching out with a permanent store and increased product offering became the obvious next step.
Ashley said: "I wanted a shop that had character and we could make our own, The shed is exactly that – it has been a labour of love but it looks just how I imagined. I feel I have brought life back to a previously empty & old looking building."
