Stephanie joins me from Renton, Washington to talk about zero waste stores and bulk shopping. Stephanie is the CEO of Scoop Marketplace, and now Scoop Intelligence.
Scoop Marketplace is a zero waste grocery store where people bring their own reusable containers to purchase package free food, home goods and personal care items.
Scoop Intelligence is an education platform for eco entrepreneurs who want to open their own zero waste stores, or would just like help along their eco journey.
4 Simple Ideas To Make a Difference:
1. CELEBRATE THE WINS. Rather than focusing on what still needs to change, focus on what has been done. Acknowledge our progress.
2. TRUST OURSELVES. Our inner voice is true and knows the answer. We should listen and follow it and not worry over small sustainability decisions.
4. OPEN OUR OWN BULK STORE. If we don’t already have zero waste stores near us, consider opening our own. Stephanie’s Scoop Intelligence course will help us step by step.

Scoop Marketplace carries pantry staples such as rice, oats, flour, and beans. They also carry tons of hard to find ingredients and zero waste products like a dish soap bar, tooth tabs, and menstrual products.
Stephanie points out how much money we can actually save by purchasing zero waste items in bulk. They may seem expensive when we see the price tag, but they last longer.
