Ones to Watch: In.gredients

From the in.gredients website:

Reducing waste while eating foods that are good for the body and earth can seem impractical. While packaging makes up 40 percent of municipal waste streams in the US, avoiding packaging is sometimes impossible. Nearly all the food we buy in the grocery store is packaged, leaving us no choice but to buy packaged food that's not always recyclable.

in.gredients revolutionizes grocery shopping as we know it. Our goal is to reduce waste by ditching packaging altogether - creating the nation's first zero-waste, package-free grocery store! in.gredients will allow customers to fill reusable containers (even ones brought from home) with their groceries, making waste reduction easy, fun, and convenient!
