Did you know that you can bring your own empty containers from home to fill up with bulk items? Follow these four simple steps.
1. Choose a container that will be right for the item you want. Why not clean and reuse plastic containers, bags with zips, and glass jars?!
2. Tare your container on the Co-op scale before filling. Put your empty container on the scale, press the tare button, and wait for the scale to reset to “0”. This means that the scale will ignore the weight of your container and will only show the weight of the actual product you’re filling it with. If you want help with this step, our staff are happy to walk you through the process.
3. Fill up on your fave bulk food products! Nuts, seeds, flours, soaps!
4. Weigh your container again when you’re finished filling it up. Record this number and share with the cashier when you’re going through check-out.
