How to Shop at Zero Waste Shops

How to Shop at Zero Waste Shops

With supermarket shopping being the norm for the majority of us, you may not be familiar with the Zero Waste shopping experience.

Grocery shopping without the added, unwanted plastic waste should be desirable for everyone, so why not make the switch now and get to grips with Zero Waste shopping?

  1. First of all, you should provide your own containers such as glass jars, reusable bottles, Tupperware and cotton produce bags. You will need to weigh this to make sure that the weight at the end of the transaction is taken off so you are not overpaying.
  2. Depending on the shop, there will be bulk dispensers filled with dried products which you can fill your containers with a pick and mix style scoop, as well as liquids and cleaning products which you will also be able to dispense directly into your bottles and jars.
  3. Then you will go to the counter and weigh the amount of products you have dispensed, minus the weight of your containers. A price will be calculated which you will then pay. And that’s it!

Sounds simple, right? At Bury Wholefoods, it is even simpler than this.

Instead of going into a Zero Waste store, you can have your Zero Waste products delivered straight to your door. By offering a Whole Food Delivery service if you live within a 10-mile radius of Bury St. Edmunds, you can order the products you require in the comfort of your own home and receive them the next day.
