America’s first no-packaging grocery store is coming to
Austin. The store, named in.gredients, asks shoppers to bring their own
containers to shop for everything from dry bulk foods and dairy to wine and
household cleaners. The new store will feature predominantly local and organic
foods; the founders claim that out-of-season produce and processed foods
contribute to unhealthy eating and energy waste. “Truth be told, what’s normal
in the grocery business isn’t healthy for consumers or the environment,” says
in.gredients co-founder Christian Lane.
