    Zero waste shop = Customers bring their own jars, bags, bottles and boxes and buy raw materials without packaging.

    "I'm sweeping floors, I'm mopping, I'm doing all these other things that generally footballers wouldn't do, and I'm working in there all the time,"

    "Football's incredible in the sense that it connects people all over the world - there's so many fans out there that are so passionate about football.

    "But if we don't have a planet to live on, and it's not thriving and it's not healthy, then football doesn't matter, it doesn't make a difference any more."

    "We intentionally kept it quiet [his past life as a footballer] because I didn't want people stereotyping the shop - I wanted the shop to speak for itself,"

    "We had a little tactic actually. If someone asked about our pasts my wife would say she was a former teacher and would drone on a bit about what she did, hoping that they forgot to ask me.

    "I'm glad it came out when it did, six months later, because I think the community in Totnes in general have seen me for who I am."
