How to Buy Bulk Foods with Stasher Bag

bulk food shopping with stasher bag

Shopping for food in bulk can be such an easy way to reduce your environmental impact. Of course, we mean those bins of unpackaged food at your local health food store (or, increasingly, even in chain grocery stores), not the supersized-cereal-box type of bulk.

When you choose to bring your own containers to fill up from the store’s large bins or canisters of unpackaged food, you can reduce the amount of packaging waste you make. It has a few other advantages, too: you can buy just the amount you need, which is perfect for more unusual ingredients like coconut flour or wheat berries (you know, if you’re getting adventurous). Plus, bulk food is often cheaper because you’re not paying for packaging – just for food.

If this sounds like the answer to your food waste and money saving prayers, well get ready! Below we’re walking you though the process of shopping for food in bulk with stasher.Continue Reading →

here’s your weekly detox for 3.10.17:Continue Reading →
