Waste Nought: Eco-friendly retail hits Van Brunt

Walking down Van Brunt yesterday, we discovered a new store called Waste Nought, which features products that are entirely made of recycled or reused materials.

Items include cleaning supplies, garden supplies, office/school supplies, and more.

Currently, all of the products are by a company called Terracycle, which uses recycled material for everything from the products themselves to the packaging and shipping. They collect discarded containers and wrappers from schools and other institutions around the country and convert them into school/office supplies or home products. Check out the video at the bottom of this post for some news coverage of Terracycle.

More eco-friendly product lines will be added to the shelves of Waste Nought in the future as well. On top of all that, the prices are affordable. What an exciting addition to the retail options in the area.

Waste Nought is located at 424 Van Brunt St (@ Van Dyke).
