If you’ve ever thought how arbitrary excess packaging is, or wanted to reduce your environmental footprint, then shopping zero waste is for you.
Of course, it’s usually a lot easier said than done, especially when you’re shopping for food – whether it’s pantry or fridge items. But the guys at Mount Zero Olives are a major leap in front of the crowd with their biannual Zero Waste Warehouse Market.
Coming to us this February 27th, the Zero Waste Market is offering up bulk purchases of their award-winning olives, olive oils, grains and pulses straight from the barrel. All you need to do is BYO vessel, whether it be a jar, Tupperware, bucket or produce bag and fill it up to your heart’s content.
All the fan-favourites are on offer, including Mount Zero’s range of naturally fermented olives, a selection of the finest Extra Virgin Olive Oils straight from the tank, plus limited seasonal EVOO blends. As for the pantry staples, there is locally grown quinoa, Persian red lentils, French-style green lentils, chickpeas and loads more to stock up on. Of course, the incredible, mineral-rich Pink Lake Salt from Dimboola is joining the party too.
In true Mount Zero fashion, the fun doesn’t end at the products. The quirky brand has teamed up with Miznon chef Afik Gal for a one-hour Hummus Masterclass compered by food writer Dani Valent. That part is ticketed, with limited space available, so be sure to get in quick smart to learn the ins and outs of the best dip in the world.
Plus, there are a few additional local makers tagging along for the ride; Sunshine Honey with honey sold by weight, eggs from the Nomadic Chooks at Tom’s Paddock and refills of eco-friendly, low-mile cleaning and body products from the Roving Refills team, to name a few.
It’s all happening at Mount Zero’ Sunshine West warehouse, so you don’t even need to drive to the Grampians to get your fix. Chuck the (sparkling clean) containers in the car and enjoy the greatness that is premium produce, sustainably sold.
