It is so amazing to see more and more #zerowaste bulk stores opening all over the globe! I have been very lucky that I was able to visit two dozens so far. 😍😍😍
Unlike supermarkets or big box chains, every very single one was unique, and they all had their own story. What they all had in common was hat they wanted to provide better choices. Is it possible to run a completely waste-free business within the economical infrastructure as it is now? Hardly. But is it possible to reduce and minimize the environmental impact? DEFINITELY!
One of my favorite zero waste bulk/refill store is @thesoapdispensary in Vancouver, BC, Canada 😊💚! They started off as a refill shop for soaps, but grew into a zero waste paradise, offering everything that was difficult to impossible to get in bulk elsewhere in the city. I am so happy they have been able to expand even more recently, and now offer kitchen staples! Pssst—they carry frozen berries, tofu, miso, (vegan) perogees, kimchi, sauces, and so much more 😍😍😍!! IKR 🤤? Congratulations!!
