The bulk bins at your local supermarket or health food store are already a great way to go green during your grocery shopping, as they reduce the waste and costs associated with packaging and marketing. But did you know you can make bulk bin shopping even greener? By bringing your own reusable food storage containers, you can eliminate the need for plastic bags or boxes at the store. The key is to find an employee who can weigh your containers before you fill them, so you are paying ONLY for the bulk item. And always make sure your containers are very clean when bringing them to the store.
