How to shop package-free

Here's my system for grocery shopping with zero waste:

Step 1

I grab the containers I'll need based on my bulk shopping list. On today’s list: sausage, labneh (my cream cheese substitute), tzatziki, eggs, flour, brown rice, mozzarella, granola and balsamic vinegar.

Step 3

I get my meat and cheese containers filled by store employees and refill the others myself. I then choose unpackaged fruit and vegetables from the produce section.
