We are Sarnia-Lambton's first zero-waste grocery store and bulk refill bar.  We carry a variety of bulk pantry staples, fridge & freezer items and produce - all package free. We have home & personal care products for refill and lifestyle products as well!

Reducing waste may seem daunting at first, but a few simple changes to our daily habits can make a huge impact. Whether you are an active waste reducer, just starting out, or somewhere in between, we would love to help you discover products that fit your lifestyle.

(3) Fill your container with how much or little product you need (we have funnels & spoons for easy filling)

(4) Checkout & the final weight of the product is calculated for you
