CANTON -- Nature’s Storehouse is participating in National Bulk Foods Week Oct. 14 to 20, sponsored by the Bulk is Green Council (BIG), a national organization dedicated to increasing awareness of the environmental and economic benefits of buying organic and natural foods in bulk.

The goal of National Bulk Foods Week is to celebrate the many reasons to shop in bulk and also encourage new consumers to give the wide variety of bulk foods a try.

Benefits include eliminating packaging, reducing the amount of garbage that ends up in landfills, and streamlining the delivery of goods to market, all of which reduce carbon footprints.

For information and to try foods in bulk, visit Nature’s Storehouse, 21 Main Street. There is an entrance from the back parking lot.
