The Zero Waste Shop Makes You Bring Your Own Food Containers

Described as the first zero waste shop in Devon, this grocery store asks customers to bring in their own containers in an effort to reduce waste. Based in the United Kingdom, Earth.Food.Love (also referred to as The Zero Waste Shop) focuses on food packaging as an approach to zero waste -- an environmental practice many grocery stores are paying more attention to.

The family-run business employs a self-weigh system where you bring your own container to fill with organic, loose, self-serve food items including cereals, spices, nuts and even liquid products like vinegars, syrups and oils. Non-food goods are also available, such as reusable sandwich wraps, environmentally friendly sanitary napkins, vegan toothbrushes and locally handmade soaps.
