Let's face it: plastic grocery bags are so 1999. If you don't bring your own reusable tote to the supermarket you are most definitely being judged by other customers as a nature hating neanderthal. Now, in 2016 the anti-waste movement has gone full speed ahead with zero waste grocery stores popping up in major cities around the world. So what exactly is a zero waste market? Brooklyn, NY resident and soon to be owner of one such establishment explains: "Customers will bring their own reusable containers to measure out just the right amount of food items and other household products. Shoppers can pack dry goods like grains and spices into their own glass jars or cloth sacks. Dispenser can be filled with oils, vinegar, honey and syrup. The store will sell milk from Ronnybrook Farm, in upstate New York, in glass bottles which shoppers can then bring back on their next grocery trip. Shopper can even get dish soap in refillable screw-top bottles".
