Zero-Waste Grocery Stores Begin

The Germans have opened a zero-waste grocery store, and now one is slated to open soon in Denver, Co.
From Indiegogo   website:
Our mission is to create a more convenient way of living zero-waste and helping the community prevent and divert as much trash from the landfills as we possibly can. Stop the trash at the source. Shop ZERO.

ZERO market (opening in late 2014 - early 2015) will offer customers non-toxic, preservative-free groceries, organic and locally grown produce, cruelty-free body care and eco-household products all in bulk and without disposable packaging. All of our products are healthy alternatives to the products available at conventional grocery chains and are specifically sold to be a “zero-waste” product. The creation of the market is in response to the growing demand for more convenience when it comes to a sustainable market offering zero-waste products.

ZERO market will be a comfortable place to meet for a bite to eat, find all the products you need that are hard to find "zero-waste" elsewhere, and a resource center for zero-waste education, cooking classes and nutrition workshops.

Along with our eco-friendly foundation of values, ZERO market will give back to the community. We will participate in community projects and host fund-raisers for local community services. We will offer workshops for healthier and more environmentally friendly lifestyles while keeping a sliding scale to make it affordable for all income families.
