So what do we mean by “package-free”?
To pass the Bare test, packaging should NOT be designed to end up in the dump. No, we don’t expect you to carry your olive oil and lentils home in the palms of your hands! What we mean by package-free is that our store is free from any single-use (or made-for-the-landfill) containers. Specifically, we do not carry or sell products that come in packaging that cannot be reused or composted.
Need a simpler option? Use one of our donated containers for free or participate in our container-lending program for a small, 100% refundable deposit.
You do you
Trying to reduce the plastic in your life, but nowhere near a zero-waste lifestyle yet? Same here. We’re not here to shame you or tell you how you should be living your life; you do you! Any effort to reduce your plastic packaging consumption—whether you’re trying to cut back on your bottled water purchases, baring it all by going toilet paper free or switching to DIY toothpaste—is okay by us! You know what’s realistic. We’re just here to offer affordable and accessible solutions towards whatever a more sustainable lifestyle means for you right now.
How does it work?
We want to make your life easier, not harder! So even though you won’t find single-use packaging in our store, there are two ways you can fill up on our goodies!

We work with our pals at The Eco Well who review the claims and ingredients of every single body care product and home cleaner we source to ensure they are safe for you and safe for the planet. We do the research so you don't have to.
