The Zero Market sells bulk food, household cleaners, bulk oils and essential oils, hygiene products, on-tap kombucha, DIY ingredients, package-free takeaway food, and zero waste home essentials such as reusable bulk bags. And here's what Julie, a Denver resident, says about where she shops: My favorite place to fill my own containers is the bulk section of Whole Foods, but I’ve been told that Sprouts also has a good bulk section. I buy most of my produce at Natural Grocers, which carries only organic produce, and labels the place of origin, whether it be Colorado, the USA, or elsewhere. For loose tea I shop at Capital Tea. The difficulty here is not going zero waste but choosing from the 75+ varieties of tea they have available. To support a zero waste life, not to be missed is the EcoMountain Home Store.
