Bulk food stores sell goods in large quantities, but more significantly, they eliminate the plastic packaging that usually accompanies them. Even more, they let customers bring in their own reusable containers from home, which reduces waste.
Do bulk food stores offer perishables? Many stores have sections with package free options in the refrigerated sections like tofu or yogurt and milk that are often sold using a deposit system.
