Sustainability

All of the daily practices by everyone within the Bexley Natural Market encourage sustainability as much as possible.

  • Food waste is placed into plastic bins and picked up daily from local farmers for composting.

  • Boxes are given out at the register for customers to transport products home from the market.

  • Packing materials that come with shipments are boxed up and donated to local vendors that can utilize those materials to ship their own products.

  • Food goods that are no longer available to sell are donated to the local food pantry.

  • Everything that can be recycled, is recycled. The manager recently took a tour of the Rumpke recycling plant with a few other members, to inquire about all things that are recyclable, and what makes something recyclable.

  • Sometimes it is necessary to bag leafy greens in our produce section, for the longevity of the product, but we minimize the use of plastics wherever possible.
