Packaging-free food shopping?

Inhabitat, a nifty green design/lifestyle/architecture blog, recently posted (all wide-eyed and ooooh) about Unpackaged, a grocery shop that sells lots of foods loose.

Well, it's a great idea. But it's not new. Of course, now it's come to the notice of trendy posh Londonites, who want Bee Pollen and Red Quinoa, it's the next big thing, but weigh-it-yourself type shops have been around for ages - they're not common, but they are there. It's just that, you know what? They are in run-down areas where people don't have much spare cash, and they sell no-brand cornflakes. Fancy!

It seems it's either top end or bottom end of the market, and nothing in the middle...

  1. You're right, there seems to be a rarity of such shops in the middle. We've got a tiny shop in Bury where they'll weigh up various loose produce.

    Anyway great to see you back. Are you going to the Zero Waste Community event in Norwich on Saturday? It would be great to see you there if you are.
