We always recommend shopping local and of course lots of shops sell stuff loose. Vegetables and meat are easily obtained loose and packaging free, even from supermarkets.
But anyone who lives in the U.K. knows how hard it is to buy staple loose, food like flour or cocoa.
Flour of course you can get in a paper bag and so plastic free, but cocoa. Do you know how long it took me to track down some plastic free cocoa? But I did and I got it loose.
To save you the stress of cocoa free nights, I am putting, together a list of stores that sell loose products of the type normally packaged like rice, spices, sugar and so on.
- These shops provide bags but they will often be plastic ones. You will need to take your own plastic-free /reusable bags.
- You can find a list of all plastic free products over at the A to Z
