Zero Waste Institute Tours @ The North End Store

Nearly one-third of all U.S. waste is made up from discarded containers and packaging materials – and the majority of this comes from our weekly (or daily) grocery shopping trips!

A large portion of this material can be recycled or recovered - but much of it is not.
The Boise Co-op has teamed up with the founders of the Zero Waste Boise Institute and RecyclePak Boise to help Treasure Valley shoppers reduce their grocery footprint, one purchase at a time.

Join us for a very special Earth Day tour of the Co-op’s North End location. It’s your original Boise Co-op – through very green glasses!

Explore topics to include package-less shopping, bulk goods, local options for packaging and container recycling and recovery, shopping to prevent food waste, and more! 
In the spirit of low-impact shopping, enjoy a 20% discount on Co-op bulk goods all weekend. 
Boise Co-op | North End | 888 W Fort Street, Boise | Sunday, April 21 | 11:30 a.m, 1:30pm & 3:30 p.m.*

*Walking tours will originate in the Co-op dining area and last approximately 50 minutes. The final tour will start at 3:30 p.m.

Tours are free; spots are available on a first-come basis.

Bring a notebook, comfortable shoes, and your green grocery shopping questions.

Our special thanks to the City of Boise for providing recycling updates to tour organizers.
