When we go to the grocery store we fill our carts with boxes of cereal, bags of sugar and flour, cartons of eggs, and packages of butter. Back at home, we toss these containers into the garbage without a second thought.
The US dumps 1.4 billion pounds of waste a day. 40% of that is created from packaging that is used only once. These are the statistics and motivation behind the new grocery store in.gredients, America’s first packaging free grocery store.
With a focus to see 100% package-free products such as seasonal produce, grains, spices, fresh meats, dairy and more, in.gredients is the first all sustainable, local, organic, package-free grocery store. Patrons can expect to find healthy, natural ingredients and cleaners. What they won’t find are shelves and shelves of unnecessary boxes. This means that shoppers will have to bring their own containers and bags – but this should help eliminate any additional food waste, because you can only purchase what your containers can store.
You can visit the all new in.gredients in Austin, Texas when it opens it’s doors in October.
