“There’s no waste in nature. Waste is a human invention”. In.gredients is one of the most progressive sustainable micro-grocer business model in the food and grocery industry, launched with the help of people and a crowd-sourcing effort through IndieGoGo. Soon next year its Austin location will be the first package-free and zero waste grocery store in the United States. If one thinks that Whole Foods – a temple of sustainability – keeps storing customers’ purchases in two (yes, two) paper bags packed one into the other, this is quite a step ahead. Everyone will bring their own bags and containers, so stay assured that nothing will be wasted. The next step for in.gredients may be to open an internal fashion design bag & container store for Austin shopping hipsters. We’ll see.
