How much plastic and glass do you think we could save if we stopped buying spices? I’m not saying to not use spices, I’m saying what if we stopped buying them in the new plastic and glass jars each time we needed new ones , and refilled them instead?
This was easier than I thought it would be. The trick: to find a store that sells products in bulk!
I found one in Norfolk: The Heritage Store. There was also a tiny organic shop at the Virginia Beach Farmer’s Market that sold spices in bulk and allowed you to bring your own jars. Couldn’t find one in Georgia.
Now, just to find one here…
Where have you found to refill?
