Inside the Coop
Our bulk section offers a great way to save money, try new products and reduce wasteful packaging. Not only do our bulk bins offer lower prices, but they don't force you to buy in set amounts. It allows you to purchase goods in the quantities you need, while avoiding the waste of buying too much.
The reason most people choose to buy in bulk, is for the reduction in packaging waste. Packaging is a large contributor to the planet's landfills, not to mention all the energy it takes to manufacture those bags and boxes. It's pretty clear that buying in bulk is more environmentally friendly than purchasing individually packaged goods.
The Co+op Natural Foods provides plastic bags free of charge, and small plastic or glass containers at a small cost. We also highly encourage you to bring your own reusable containers to lessen the environmental impact even more!
Be sure to have the containers weighed at the front registers before you fill them so you are not charged for the weight of the container.
If you have questions about specific bulk items and prices, please give us a call. We would be happy to assist!
