A not so fun fact: 40% of packaging contributes to the 1.4 billion pounds of waste added to US landfills per day. A great way to help reduce this number is by shopping at in.gredients – the first zero waste, package-free grocery store in the US. It is a more sustainable way to shop while supporting local businesses and farms. All you need to do is bring your own containers to the store and fill ‘em up, weigh them and you are on your way. It allows you to buy however much or however little you may need. Shopping at in.gredients is one more way we can try to help reduce waste!
Opens in Austin, TX in 2011. Here’s to hoping more follow suit. Cheers!
