We’re happy that more and more eco-friendly products are becoming available. Here are three of our newest favorites in the store.

BRINGiT Produce Bags

Introducing a new option for reusable, washable, and compostable produce bags in our Produce Department. The BRINGiT 6-pack features 2 mesh bags, 2 large bags, and 2 small bags made from renewable beechwood tree fiber with drawstring closures. And, this feature is very cool—the bag tare weights are printed right on the label! These bags can be washed at up to 100 degrees and air-dried. They are super-strong like cotton and tear-resistant but when you finally do wear one out it can be added to your home compost 🌎 Learn more at bringit.org

HiBAR Shampoo & Conditioner Bars

One day, four friends realized they were all thinking the same thing: plastic sucks. The catalyst was visiting a plastic-strewn beach. It left them angry and wanting to eliminate plastic from their own lives. One thing they focused on was hair care. Why no salon-quality plastic-free shampoo or conditioner? After all, in the USA, half a billion shampoo and conditioner bottles get tossed every year.

Three years of formulation later, they launched HiBAR — salon-quality performance and experience, natural ingredients, and, of course, beautiful plastic-free packaging.

“This shampoo bar is a game-changer. The best plastic-free switch I’ve made to date.” —Jessica P

COFFEESOCK Coffee Filter

2.25 billion cups of coffee are consumed globally every day. Assuming that at least ⅓ of those cups are currently made with paper filters in 8 cup batches, 750 million paper filters are being made and discarded, each and every day. 275 billion per year. It takes the equivalent of 1.5 million trees to make that many filters annually. In one year the volume of trash created by the filters only (not accounting for the grounds) is enough to fill 128 buildings the size of the Louvre to a height of 10 feet.


COFFEESOCK filters are a reusable alternative to paper filters and nylon sacks made with Certified Organic Cotton. Cotton absorbs some of the oils released from coffee beans yet lets acids pass through. The resulting cup is clear crisp, rich, and robust with all the acid of paper brewed coffee, without the paper taste, and all of the richness of French press without the heavy oiliness. The filters are sewn and packaged in Austin, TX by happy human beings making a fair and living wage 😎
