A 100% packaging free grocery store! How much greener can you get!?

A friend of mine shared an article with me from Time Magazine just the other day and it's so cool that I must share it with you all.

The article is about a new grocery store, one-of-a-kind, located in Austin of course!  (aren't all the cool things in Austin? so, not, fair...)  The grocery store will be called in.gredients and it will sell only 100% package free products.  They hope to open in October but are still trying to meet their fundraising goals.

The TIME Magazine article points out...

Americans throw away 1.4 billion pounds of waste every day, and 40% of it comes from one-time packaging. But it's hard trying to be a conscious recycler after a while because of the double or triple wrappings for every product.
I think this is exciting news, a great step, more of a leap in my opinion, in the right direction.  Green concepts like these really get me excited about the future for our children and their children and I look forward to more innovative business concepts such as this one.

To learn more about in.gredients please watch this nice little youtube video about them and/or read the TIME Magazien article linked to above.
