Zero Waste Couple Multiplies Their Impact with an Amazing Package-Free Store
Paula and Nairn stad their zero waste journey 5 years ago after watching the 'Trashed' documentary. They immediately stad reducing their waste by swapping items like plastic toothbrushes for bamboo ones. Wanting to make zero waste options more accessible to people, Paula and Nairn price check their products to match the mainstream grocery store prices so that buying package-free food isn't more expensive. They also have a 'take a jar leave a jar' system that makes it easier for people to show up at the store unprepared and still get everything they need. To make it happen, they accept recycling from customers, clean and sanitize it, and then make these s available for free to any customer who walks in the door. We love that their work isn't only on the consumer side of things. They couple has spent a lot of time creating a circular economy with their local suppliers to reuse buckets, jugs, and other s so that they're reducing waste all the way through the supply chain.
