Zero-Waste Grocery Shopping & How It Can Save You Money

The zero-waste trend has taken hold and it’s now all about eliminating disposable containers and packaging from daily life.

If you’re embracing the zero-waste trend when it comes to grocery shopping, you’re saving more than the environment. Your wallet and the environment will both thank you for embracing zero-waste grocery shopping. The process can be exceedingly simple as well. Zero-waste grocery shopping is centered around refilling containers in three critical areas: bulk, produce, and meat.

For the bulk section, any product that sees you use bins and dispensers to scoop and/or pour your items can be refilled in reusable glass containers. You can often find more than you realized you could if you take a trip to the bulk section. You can get peanut butter, cocoa powder, and much more in the bulk isle. This is where you can bring your own jars and make the environmental and financial magic happen. In fact, you can save as much as 50% by bringing your own containers to be filled with spices or other bulk products, according to Business Insider. This can help you save huge amounts of money on everyday purchases such as flour or olive oil.

You can also get creative by recreating some of your favorite snacks. For example, instead of buying overpriced cheese sticks wrapped in plastic, why not just buy the cheese and make the sticks yourself? A block of cheese can cost much less than packaged cheese sticks, and it can be placed in your own reusable packaging. This kind of thinking can save you money, save the environment, and save your health all at once.
