zero waste chicago.

If you live in Chicago, take a look at the amazing interactive map my friend Bailey recently created. The map features zero waste groceries, farmers' markets, urban farms, secondhand stores, and more, all around the city. You can search by geographical area or by the type of business you're looking for. It's such a great resource. I've already found quite a few new-to-me places that I'm looking forward to visiting.

If you don't live in Chicago, you can still take a peek at my guides to where to shop package free and where to compost throughout the United States and Canada. And if you get inspired by Bailey to make your own interactive map, let me know; I'd love to feature it!

PS - I've added a new tag to corral all of my Chicago posts. You can browse them here if you'd like!

Update: Now, there are even better resources for zero waste folks in Chicago! Alongside friends I've started Zero Waste Chicago, an environmental organization dedicated to building a zero waste community here in the Windy City. You can find us at our website, on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter!
