I read about this a few months ago and think it is so great. A zero-waste grocery store will be opening (may already be opened) in Austin Texas. There will be NO packaging on any of the items sold. It will mainly be a buy in bulk from bins kind of place.
Buying in bulk is hard for me because I don’t have a lot of storage space in my kitchen but I still buy from bulk bins anyway. I go to the supermarket 3-4 times a week and buy whatever I will need for the next few days. I bring my cloth reusable bags with me so I don’t have to use the plastic ones provided in the store. It is so hard to avoid packaging sometimes but I try my best and if I do buy anything with packaging, I make sure to recycle. It would be amazing to have zero-waste grocery stores everywhere! Hopefully the one in Austin Texas will do well and more like them will be popping up.
How do you avoid packaging when you grocery shop? Any tips? Please do share!
