The Zero Waste movement has different meanings for different people, but in general Zero Waste means moving our society as a whole toward products that have been responsibly produced, can be responsibly consumed, are reusable, and have no effects on our landfills, water, or air.
The goal of the Zero Waste Movement is to redesign our societal systems and resources, from product conception and design to its disposal, to prevent wastefulness and pollution.
Becoming Zero Waste in your day to day life can seem like a daunting task. We have spoken with many customers in our store who want to go Zero Waste in their day to day lives and are struck with the sudden realization of how much plastic they actually consume on a day to day basis and feel that the task of replacing those plastic and|or wasteful items can be overwhelming.
We understand that going Zero Waste for people can be a challenge and a task that will take time, which is why our company mission states that “Our Mission is to inspire and facilitate change in the world one jar and one customer at a time. We will build communities around the common goal of a greener and more sustainable future by working together to find Zero Waste solutions that will improve, simplify, and beautify our lives.”
The most important thing to remember when shopping at one of our locations is that no one is judging you, this is something we’ve heard from customers on occasion, when they’ve come into the store to see what it’s all about and are curious to learn more about the “Zero Waste Lifestyle”, or simply have never heard of the “Zero Waste Lifestyle” movement. Our friendly and helpful staff are there for you to answer any questions you may have and to help you find Zero Waste solutions for your life and your household.
We understand that going Zero waste is not something that can be done in a day, or even overnight, but with small changes, you can become a Zero Waste Household quite quickly. We can be the change we want to see in the world if we all work together toward a greener and cleaner future.
At Monsieur Vrac we offer many ways that you can add Zero Waste items into your ever day life.
