The Sustainability Committee Visits St. Pete’s First Zero-Waste Store

Who needs single-use plastics when we’ve got Sans Market?

Owner Eniko Olah believes that we can all live healthier happier lives without plastic, packaging and toxins.

We got a tour of the store and pep talk from Eniko. We found all natural replacements for laundry detergent, skin creams, shampoos and more, all sold “sans” packaging.

The Sustainability Committee recently visited Sans Market, which is St. Petersburg's first zero-waste store.

We also found many easy, attractive, even trendy ways to eliminate the single-use items that are such a part of our lives that they’re hard to give up.

The selection of reusable straws alone are worth the trip to Sans. So many different colors and sizes for everything from a cocktail or soda to Boba tea and carrying cases, too.

Bring your own container, purchase one of theirs or use the assortment of freebie containers available. Many of the products will save you some money as well as helping save the planet.

Sans Market is at 1113 Central Avenue, upstairs above Baum Market. The phone number is 727-644-9505.
