MEAT/FISH

Any butcher or fish monger. Don't ask at your local supermarket (Coles, Woolsworth, Aldi etc). Just take any container with you, even if its plastic.



Remember being plastic free is about asking for no NEW plastic. Don't feel guilty about taking your old plastic for reuse.

If you live in an area with ethnic food stores, pop your head in to see if they sell dried goods in bulk. I know of a few on Sydney Road and one in Moonee Ponds (Rays Nuts, Hall Street) that does.

Most of the above locations can be found via the Bulk App. A handy tool for all your Plastic Free July shopping plus it’s free to download from the Play and App Store. When you download the app don’t forget to add any gems you find.

  1. OMGosh this is brilliant! I was so worried about how I was going to do the Plastic Free July Challenge. Im glad you mentioned that we can reuse the plastic containers we already had...made me feel better because I initially thought we couldn't use them and felt like I would fail miserably with this challenge. Thank you so much for the listing :)

    1. Thanks Sharal! Of course you can reuse plastic. Going cold turkey would be too hard. This challenge is all about avoiding new plastic. I still reuse some plastic containers 2 years on :)

    1. Hi Richard, I am guessing you are from Melbourne? I have heard from a friend that La Latteria in Carlton sell milk in glass that can be returned. I have yet to check them out myself. If I do I will update this page.

    Hi Erin,
    Thanks for the list. Love your work. There's also Terra Madre, 103 High St, Northcote VIC. Most items are available in bulk, some are packaged in paper/cellulose (biodgradable) bags.

  6. This list is amazing! Thank you so much. We are moving to Melbourne from Copenhagen in Feb. and plan to continue to reduce our waste as much as possible. We are so exited as Copenhagen has very limited options (read none) of buying in bulk. Tak! Camilla

    Replies
    1. I am shocked that there would be next to none in Copenhagen. I thought they would be all over that kind of thing. Well there are many in Melbourne for you to check out :) The list will keep you busy and a good excuse to explore the city.

      Delete
  7. Hi Erin. Sounds good! We can't wait. Yes, when I started this journey I was quite surprised too. If you go outside the city you will find local farmers etc. however in the city options are very limited and what we do find is always non-organic. The big difficult question is always non-organic bulk vs. organic wrapped in plastic - which is so ironic. Another question, is there anywhere they collect compost in Melbourne? Thank you! Best Camilla

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Not yet - but I think there are trials. I would advise that you call your local council about compost options in your area OR contact a local community garden. Your council should have a list of community gardens if you can't find them easily. Let me know how you go.

  8. Great list of suppliers. Thanks for putting it together

    For tea and coffee, McIver's at the Queen Vic Markets (Stall 101/102 Dairy Hall) and McIver's North (137 Dawson St Brunswick West) do bulk and they are very happy for you to bring in a container. A lot of the tea is sourced and blended locally, they have a couple of Australian coffees as well.
    Hope this is handy for some 😉

    1. Great tip Monica. I will have to check those places out. I love my tea :)

  9. Monica, may I suggest you join the Zero Waste Melbourne Facebook group (if you like)? Places like McIver's is a great find! Other would be so grateful to learn of new zero waste stores.

  10. Hello, just had to add that CERES in Brunswick is a great place for bulk. You can get everything from foods to cleaning products and beauty products. Also, as a non-profit environment park, it's worthy of your money. :) Jasmine

  11. Hey Erin, I'm trying to go plastic free and vegan... Do you know anywhere to get tofu/tempeh/soy milk that isn't plastic wrapped? I don't know if it exists..

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hey, give Friends of the Earth in Collingwood a ring as they sometimes stock it package free. Another place to try is International tofu shop in Richmond. I have not been there myself but I have heard they make their own there, so you could make an arrangement with them.

    Great list! In the Western Suburbs there is the iconic Big Sam market in St Albans - http://www.stalbansmarket.com.au/ . Lots of fresh produce and bulk buys! Plenty of small food providers in the surrounding area too.

  16. Such a fantastically helpful post for those of us who are trying to transition! I've recently discovered Plump Organics in Yarraville has a small but solid selection of flours, grains, nuts and seeds that can be purchased in bulk!

    1. This is a tricky one...I have yet to find plastic free berries anywhere. The only option that I've come across is to visit berry farms in the warmer seasons, pick your own and freeze them. Sorry I could not be of more help with that one.

  19. May I suggest CERES in Brunswick? They have recently expanded and offer bulk grains, flours, pulses, spices, teas, oils, honey and cleaning products. They also have fresh organic seasonal fruit and veggies.

    Highly recommend!

    1. Tofu Shop International and Friends of the Earth. Ring beforehand to make sure they've got some in stock.
