"Consumers also regularly brought their own containers into grocers to buy only what they needed in bulk." And some of us, particularly those who belong to food co-ops, still do. I'm really tired of hearing how categories I may seem to fall into do X or Y that I don't do/never did, or haven't done for years. Since that particular co-op has probably 500+ members, and another co-op I used to belong to had at least several hundred (different town) it would seem that more then a few people don't fall into these categories, although I've noticed a tendency for some members to prefer packaged products.

Perhaps it's all the corporate food/ag propaganda that promote a preference for wasteful products? For the "safety" of plastic?

Hi azure,

I understand your frustration about people talking about this so much. I, too, am a co-op shopper. However, I don't think most people actually shop using bulk like we do at the co-op. Hence, the need for this articles and others like it.
