zerowastehome The easiest way to find bulk while travelling is farmers markets. The ones that we visited in France don't just carry fruit and veggies, but bulk butter, cream and an amazing selection of condiments! The frenchies are lucky! -----
La vrac le plus facile a trouver en voyage, c'est au marche de producteur. Ceux que nous avons utilise en France, ne propose pas que des fruits et des legumes en vrac, mais aussi du beurre, de la creme fraiche en vrac et un choix magnifique de condiments! Ils en ont de la chance ces francais! ----- #zerowaste #zerodechet #zerowastehome #bulkisbeautiful #bulkiseverywhere #indiegogo

  •   zerowastenerd Farmer's Markets = my happy place ♡♡♡ 11h
  •   moshiboshi Wish we had better farmers' markets here in the UK: outside London there's really not much going on :-( 11h
  •   moshiboshi (Beautiful photo by the way) 11h
  •   dog_days_za This is really remarkable. In South Africa I haven't come across anything like this. We can buy fruit and veggies loose at farmers markets, but other than that it's so difficult to get away from packaging. I'm moving to Thailand soon and will be "restarting" in a way. No plastic will be bought. 10h
  •   csb13100 Ouais ! Chez nous tout en vrac ! 10h
  •   persuadedproject This is awesome, I'm in Ontario and we also have our farmers markets but not like this! Hopefully it'll transition soon! #nomoreplastic 10h

  •   seymour_man That's right @mamaofthewildthings 1d
  •   rosenoisettes That's paradise there! 1d
  •   pinegrove.living Yes @mamaofthewildthings it does look like Bulk Barn. I was just in ours this past weekend talking to the manager and you are right, they don't let you bring in your own containers. I was told it's a "contamination" issue. Anyone have suggestions to counter this argument? 1d
  •   alessandra.lev I find Bulk Barn more expensive in Canada 1d
  •   zerowastehome @mamaofthewildthings yes it's Bulk Barn and we filled our containers there this summer with no problem. No questions asked. 1d
  •   mrs.tiggy.winkle Our Bulk Barn doesn't let us use our own cloth bags/containers.(East Coast,Canada).I am hoping with the demand of less waste/zero waste they will re-think their policy:( 19h
  •   helenevamccarthy @mrs.tiggy.winkle I shop at my bulk barn (in Ontario) and they don't let you bring your own containers (interesting that Bea was able too, I wonder if they recognized her or if the rules are different in the states?) the only solution I've come up with is only buying there what I can't get at my other bulk shop, which is mostly liquid bulks like oil. For that I wash and reuse their plastic containers so at least I'm no using new ones every time. 17h

  •   thebettergrey Omg. Bulk sunlotion. Thats awesome. I hope there are opening more bulk stores in Germany. from Germany 2d
  •   sarahbelfer @healthy_lety le plastique , c'est le pire. c'est toxique pour toi et l'environnement. Si j'étais toi, je garderais mes bouteilles en verre qui elles, ne sont pas toxiques, et ne causent aucun problème pour l'environnement. :) 2d
  •   t88dmkkm Lush vend de la crème solaire en barre 2d
  •   a.beth.elis @zerowastehome I can't found the contact about this shop, can you help me? 2d
  •   weriem @healthy_lety Je pense pareil que @sarahbelfer Pas convaincue par ces flacons en plastique de contenance moyenne. Le déchet plastique n'est plus chez toi mais chez le commerçant... Du pareil au même pour la planète! Le verre se recycle indéfiniment :-) 2d
  •   weriem @healthy_lety @sarahbelfer @zerowastehome Après, j'espère que je me trompe et que cette initiave est plus verte qu'il n'y parait! 2d
  •   thehappyhermit @zerowastehome Please send some #bulk stores to the UK! impossible to find at the moment :( 2d
  •   healthy_lety @sarahbelfer @weriem merci beaucoup pour vos réponses , effectivement je pense avoir la même réflexion . Après jai peu d'expérience en zéro déchet donc je n'étais pas sûr de ce qui était le mieux . Merci bcp belle soirée 1d

zerowastehome One of my personal favorite #bulk‬ suppliers: @eoproducts. They opened a store a couple of blocks away, selling shampoo, lotions, etc in bulk. I go there for the conditioner. It smells so good, I want to eat it;) What;s your favorite bulk supplier? #savethebulkapp‬ ----- Un de mes fournisseurs de vrac preferre: EO. Ils ont ouvert un magasin a deux pas de chez moi et vendent du shampoing et de la lotion corporelle en vrac. Mais j'y vais pour le demellant. Ca sent si bon, que ca me donne envie de le manger;).

  •   y0y0k0 This is amazing! 3d
  •   les_agites_du_bocal Cest super ! Mais comment vous conserver le vin une fois rebouché? Ils font le vide d air? 3d
  •   siobhainautumn I would be super interested to know how they legally let you walk away with refilled bottles that have no label and no tamper seals. Honest question. I work for a brewery and while we offer refillable growlers, legally speaking we can't not put "tamper seals" on the container. 3d
  •   munichlove1 After seeing this, I found one in Munich. Would have never thought of buying wine like that. Thanks so much. 3d
  •   healthy_et_sexy @zerowastehome salut bea. Je viens d'acheter ton livre. Je suis en train d ouvrir les yeux sur tout un tas de choses qui font partie de mon quotidien au point d être devenue naturelles et invisibles. Je me pose une question que tu traites peut être dans ton livre (je viens de le commencer) mais comment fais tu pour les emballages de médicaments ? Merci encore pour ton regard sur le monde empreint de bienveillance et de bon sens. 3d

  •   its_angie_rose @reh101114 and no, I can stand up for her because I admire her as a person even if she decides to use words that have sexual innuendos because women have sexualities too. It's not just men, and it's not dirty. Any logical person would understand that. 2d
  •   its_angie_rose @hilmcmc I would but I'm too busy being continuously baffled by your never ending bigotry. 2d
  •   reh101114 @its_angie_rose Again with the name calling!!!!! Point at yourself....a logical person would go back and reread my posts and stop lumping me in with everyone! I never said anything about male or female! Mine was in reference to the word with food!!!!!!! 2d
  •   reh101114 @hilmcmc Agree!! That girl is hyped up for no reason. She is quite fond of name calling and making things personal. 2d
  •   faith_peace_hope @reh101114 what are you talking about 2d
  •   reh101114 @its_angie_rose Also, if you admire Bea that much you would not spend all your time on your agenda, name-calling, and arguing with her followers. You would have deflected the issue back to Bea's cause for saving the bulk app!!! 2d
  •   au.ptit.coin @reh101114 @hilmcmc @its_angie_rose know how US is called here in France ? "Puritan"... 1d
  •   whip.stitch I have to agree w all the push back on the word porn. Whatever your attitude about pornography, the term has a negative connotation and undermines your ability to reach an audience with your message. While it may not be used in this context to reference sexual behavior, it can't be denied that readers will make that lexical connection, which seems to be at odds with a philosophy of "less having, more being." That particular word seems to create a paradox in your feed and may be the source of the tension coming through in comments. I love what you have to say about zero waste and a more connected lifestyle and would hate to see it dismissed or overlooked as a result of semantics! 1d

  •   charlotte.rara At the Maille shop in Paris you can refill mustard & vinegar jars! 5d
  •   lorenzrae @raebuggie I think that it does work in the US, but information has not been put in for every city. When you find bulk in your area, you can add it to the app!! That will help the next person who searches your town. I have done that for the different places I shop. 5d
  •   raebuggie @lorenzrae oh okay, thanks! I will definitely be doing that then 🏽 4d

zerowastehome (EN) A #bulk favorite we discovered while travelling in Florida: Ice!

  •   yvettehorner Il existe des presses agrumes électriques "domestiques", c'est juste un petit moteur qui fait tourner la partie en pic du presse agrume. On coupe ses oranges en 2, on appuie, ça tourne, on verse dans un verre, on rince sous l'eau. Basta. J'ai fait ça tous les matins pendant des années! Ça prend vraiment 2 minutes. Ca n'est pas comparable avec du jus en brique! J'ai l'impression de boire du destop!! On peut presser aussi des pamplemousses, des citrons, des oranges sanguines.... Avec un brin de menthe c'est un régal! 1w
  •   sentiersdimages Faire du jus chez soi est très simple mais sans composteur c'est une usine à déchets! (bon, les tonnes de briques ou de bouteilles en verre ne valent pas nécessairement mieux). Même question que @celdetranb tiens! 1w
  •   oh__seriously Love this! I was curious if you have an article up on your experiences regarding things that are very, very difficult, or even practically impossible, yo avoid packaging for? There are loads of things that spring to mind for me - for example, ink pens and highlighter pens (only solution I can think of is a quill! Followed by a cartridge pen...). Also, things where legally packaging is needed, like my medication prescriptions from the pharmacy (so much waste!), and take-out containers or to-go pizza, where often they refuse to use customer-packaging for health and safety reasons. Thankyou!! 1w
  •   monicamedina82 Nothing's beats freshly squeezed OJ 1w
  •   peachmelbatoast Great questions @oh__seriously! I follow a lot of zero waste bloggers and I wish they'd more specifically address those kinds of issues! It's kind of like zero waste 2.0 after we've acclimated to the easier lifestyle changes like bringing your own containers for the bulk section. 1w
  •   zerowasteteacher @oh__seriously @peachmelbatoast I know she does refill cartridge pens! For pizza I've actually had great experiences with them filling my own container, & if take out places won't, you can order ahead on the phone "for here" & specify that you don't mind if it gets cold, please don't put it in take out containers. Then transfer it to your container from their for-here plate! Still better than disposable take out boxes etc ! 1w
  •   mllepimprenelle Merci pour l'info @yvettehorner 7d
