Changing the world for the better needs to be as easy and frugal as doing grocery shopping. Our everyday choices can make a difference in the place we live and in other people’s lives. Bulk Market® was created with this in mind. It believes businesses should make it easy for people to make the right choices, and ditching disposable packaging is one of them.

The recyclable grades of plastic can only be down-cycled. The other ‘not currently recycled’ grades of plastic usually end up in landfill or polluting the oceans. Disposable packaging costs consumers money, requires manufacturing and also costs local authorities billions of pounds to be collected, sorted and recycled. Bulk Market decided to simplify things and enable consumers to take home only the food they buy, without the unnecessary packaging. That means no more fights over who is taking the rubbish out, with the added bonus of helping to create a cleaner planet for future generations.

“Innovation is standing up for what you believe in so you can make a huge difference in your local community. What if everyone around you gets inspired to do the same? You get a critical mass that can bring the change we all need.”
