Zero waste shopping is the art of collecting goods in reusable containers without the use of any new plastic or packaging. We call this an art form because truly when you're first learning where to purchase things in bulk, you feel like it should be a profession. But once you get it, oh you got it.
We spent hours, days, and many drives around LA looking for the things we needed. Pasta, shampoo, coconut oil, bread, baking soda, we've been on the hunt, and now we're here to help you save time.
The things that keep us from committing to a less waste lifestyle is a fear of change. Even if we know it's something good for us and the planet it can be overwhelming, but if you're ready to commit to zero waste, you have to just go for it. Look online, visit stores, try products, mess up, forget your containers, it's all a part of the process. But hey, we're here to help! Our goal is to help the planet, and we can only help mother earth if we help others improve their habits. So, Los Angeles, we got you. Where you need to shop for all things bulk, the comprehensive guide below.

Bulk bins are on sale this week and here’s why that’s good for you. You’ll save even more money. Bulk is less expensive than its packaged counterparts. You’ll eat cleaner. Heavily processed foods, so no synthetic additives and preservatives in them (not to mention all the extra sugars and salt). You’ll reduce food packaging — Buying in bulk uses way less packaging, everything from shipping to the consumer package on the shelves. Save 10% on bulk at Lassens through Saturday, April 13th.
