Join the Zero Waste Revolution

Do you want to reduce your family’s food and plastic waste? Are you a keen advocate and supporter of Plastic Free July?  

The good news is that most household waste is avoidable - with a few simple lifestyle changes, you can dramatically reduce your family’s food and plastic waste.

At the Source Bulk Foods, our job is to provide food in a bulk format allowing you to select as little or as much as you like.  We encourage customers to bring in their own jars, containers, bags and bottles to refill. 

To support our belief in making small changes towards a zero-waste lifestyle, we are offering 10% off your shopping basket when you bring your containers into store for a refill during the month of July. 

When you buy in bulk you can scoop out exactly how much you need so there is no food waste. If a recipe requires 100gms of quinoa then you can measure and buy exactly that – rather than buy a kilo bag that may gather dust in your kitchen.  Being able to buy in bulk also give you the versatility to try new products as you can sample small sizes of them before investing in more.  With no minimum purchase of anything in store, you can also buy small quantities of various items to make up things like your own granola or muesli – allowing you to be more creative in the kitchen!!

In addition to a great selection of organic, vegan, gluten-friendly, dairy-free and paleo products, we offer our customers a wide variety of sustainable personal and household products.  We aim to source and sell everyday products that replace single use household items further supporting our zero-waste ethos. 

Come into the store during July and we will give you 10% off the following range of sustainable products:

  • stainless steel water bottles
  • reusable coffee cups
  • beeswax wraps
  • cotton produce bags
  • bamboo toothbrushes
  • jute bags
  • shampoo bars
  • stainless steel straws
  • nut Mylk base
  • Warrior stainless steel lunchbox

Becoming an aware shopper makes a huge difference to the planet and it also encourages and inspires those around you to start making a collective small change towards a zero-waste lifestyle.

So pop into one of our stores and experience the unique opportunity to mill your own flours on site, or sample some of our kombucha and kefir water (available on tap).  You can even take home a pot of raw honey.  Our staff are passionate foodies, you can always have a chat and ask them about the food you are buying.  It’s all about nourishing your body, caring for the planet and setting up practices in your day to day life that has a positive and far reaching effect on the world around you.

Come and visit us in store! We look forward to seeing you.
