As I'm increasingly aware of the waste produced by just about everything we do as humans, I'm seeking a place that sells almost everything in bulk that I can re-use containers when purchasing food. Good examples are:
All of these things are packaged when purchased and I can honestly say I'm starting to get a little antsy when i'm buying at a store cause there are no options. I've found a few places in Kensington for good Peanut Butter and milk that I can return glass containers to. But mostly everything else I can't find.
I've heard of a place, but can't seem to locate it. I'd also like to be able to purchase more organic foods and ecologically friendly items (detergents and soaps) in bulk.
Anyone? Any ideas? I'm so sick of buying pasta and having to throw out those stupid plastic sleeves every time.
And I don't really care where it is in the city. Ideally not out of the downtown, but I'm willing to test my resolve.
