What else? Zero Market sells their own reusable glass and stainless steel containers. They also hold a great variety of workshops all related to zero waste and healthy lifestyle.

Hey friends! We are so thrilled at how much the company has grown since our grand opening on June 1st 2018! Thanks to you we are growing, getting more inventory every month, and most importantly, helping the planet one fill at a time. In order to keep our store fresh and efficient we will be doing a remodel tomorrow, Monday, October 14th, and Tuesday, October 15th! We will be closed during this time but we will be open and ready to roll on Wednesday! Looking forward to seeing you! We hope you will love the new additions to the store :) XO, Britt • . • . • . #ecofriendly #reusable #denversustainability #reusereducerecycle #plasticfreeshopping #zerowaste #zerowasteliving #zerowastelifehacks #refillshop #zerowastetravel #yayforearth #goingzerowaste #nowasteliving #notoxlife #zerowasteweek #nowastehome #globalclimatestrike #tennysonstreet #buylocal #shoplocal #goingzerowaste #coloradoliving #vegan #denvercolorado #denversbest #colorado #denverliving
