If you’re worried about contaminating the planet with pastic and other types of waste material when shopping, then you have a great opportunity to shop in the new zero waste market opening this Saturday Feb. 2nd and Sunday Feb. 3rd from 9 a.m to 2 p.m.
The market is organized by the civil association of zero waste in Yucatán, headed by Carolina Canché Rodríguez, with the support from municipal govvernment and the Chalchi foundation.
Food related products will be available in this market (rice, beans, sugar, salt, oats, lentils, chickpeas, fruits, vegetables, etc), household cleaning and personal hygiene items, second-hand clothes, vegetarian food and organic beverages such as kombucha. In addition, a family yoga class and a compost workshop will be offered, both free of charge.
The objective is to demonstrate that daily activities can be carried out without damaging the natural environment, for example, making purchases for the house with natural, local, bulk, fair trade alternatives without plastic bags or packaging.
It will be the first time that the Zero Trash Market is held in Mérida. The concept has already been carried out in other parts of the country, such as Puebla and Mexico City.
