We first discovered Happy Planet Green Store as one of the early adopters of crisp packet recycling. They are forward thinkers, for sure.
We have discovered all sorts of items and ideas inside their plastic-free doors. (For example, DID YOU KNOW: You can rent a goat in Pembrokeshire to keep your lawn in check? Well you can.)
On top of game-changing local knowledge, you will find a selection of organic veg and fruit but Happy Planet Green Store is all about the plastic-free. Re-fills and more…
They have a good selection of dry goods (pasta, rice, raisins, beans, nuts etc.), some of which are also organic, which you get to enjoy weighing and measuring out for yourself, using their little scoops, into your own container (this may also be fun for children). It’s great to be able to get a tiny bit of something random you need for a recipe without having to buy a whole plastic bag full of something you may never use again.
Other plastic-free items we have enjoyed buying and trying from here: ponchos made of spuds, coconut scourer, horrible toothpaste in a tiny jar (so horrible, it’s probably worth the experience of having it in your mouth for a second or two just to give you a bit of perspective on the problems in your life), metal straws in a fetching straw holder, period products, re-fillable laundry liquids, yummy cookies, local milk in a returnable glass bottle…
It’s Great For…
- Plastic-free shopping and goods (refills) – take your own containers
- Eco-friendly household products
- Excellent local notice-board

For short stays and if you’re lucky, you might find a space at the very top of High Street, which is very close to Happy Planet Green Store.
However, we normally head to the main car park of Narberth, for ease and proximity.
There are a few, free, short stay spaces, on the right as you drive into the car park, they are some of the closest spaces in Narberth to Happy Planet Green Store. 2 min walk
Otherwise you can pay at the machine, or by phone, and stay as long as you like.
