A thing of beauty is a joy forever.
Our cloth bags give us just that feeling: joy.
Since the founding of Origin Bulk Store in September last year, we have endeavored to align our process and procedures with our mission of adopting a zero waste lifestyle.
Packaging is crucial if we want to truly aim for zero waste. But not just any kind of packaging will do. We wanted something beautiful and at the same time practical to fit all the goodies ordered by our customers.
We started by sourcing second-hand shopping bags from our families and friends. We quickly realised that we were creating a demand for shopping bags which contradicted with what we preached.
After 12 months in operation, we decided that packing our orders in a canvas bag is best. The fabric is strong enough to hold our glass jars as it can carry five times more weight than plastic bags. It can be cleaned when it is dirty and patched when it is torn. It is also decompostable.
