Zero waste Grocery Store A Contribution to Nature

A zero-waste grocery store recently opened its doors in Germany and everyone should get excited. 80% of items sold in supermarkets is wrapped in toxic packaging. In effect, Americans still produce near 3 pounds of trash every day, and this is a big problem. So what could be an intelligent solution? How about a zero-waste grocery store that utilizes no waste materials.

To eliminate food-packaging waste before it even gets into the shopping cart is the success behind Original Unvertpackt, a new supermarket in Germany that takes things into zero-waste territory by encouraging consumers to tote reusable containers to the store.

Nothing that comes in a disposable box, bag, jar, or other container is sold at this store. And instead of shelf after shelf of boxed items, this supermarket utilizes bulk bins, attractively displayed produce that’s not shrink wrapped or stored in tetra packs, and beverage stations for refillable water bottles.

It is the brainchild of Sara Wolf and Milena Glimbovski, two Germany-based social impact innovators. They want consumers to have a choice about how much food they buy, as well eliminating unnecessary waste associated with the packaging.
