Buy In Bulk
Shopping in bulk is a great way to save money.
However, for avid bulk shoppers, it also means potentially creating a lot of plastic waste in the form of single-use plastic bags.
Luckily, many bulk stores are catching on to the practice of plastic free bulk shopping with “bring your own container” policies.
Simply bring your own clean glass jars from home, have them weighed at the till before shopping, and you’re off to the races!
Worried about not having enough jars at the store? Prepare your shopping list ahead of time so you know exactly how many jars you need. This will also help prevent you from wandering home with impulse purchases! Many mason jars have volume measurements on their sides, which also help to minimize purchasing excess food.
Plastic-free pro tip: jars full of nuts, seeds and other tasty treats can be heavy! Make sure you use a sturdy reusable bag to transport them, or consider using a cardboard box.
Fill up your jars at Scoop and Weigh, Vita Health, Generation Green, or Bulk Barn!
