You In?

A package-free, zero-waste, crowd-sourced grocery store is in the works in Austin? Holy hyphens!

The store, In.gredients, will open at some point in 2011, as long as their funding outreach progresses.

I’m excited to see this store come to fruition, as it seems like a model for other grocers to aim for. I have one small caveat, though: I don’t demonize all food packaging, because it can prevent food from being damaged, and, eventually, wasted.

That said, I’m guessing that most of the packaging avoided at In.gredients won’t fit that description. And, of course, I’m all for zero-waste with food, be it via donation and composting or anaerobic digestion with the inedible stuff.

Anyway, check out the jaunty video to see the hyphens come to life:
