A Guide to Zero-Waste Grocery in Nevada

If you’re looking to eliminate unnecessary waste in your home, you may have considered researching or shopping at stores offering little to zero-waste grocery in Nevada.

No one is perfect, but I always think it is a great idea to swap out different products in your life that can be purchased more sustainably. If you start to swap out 1-2 products each month that offer more sustainable alternatives and less waste, I am all for it.

While this is an ever-growing market, there are some awesome local stores that offer zero-waste grocery options where we live.

We will definitely give it to our Northern cities (Reno, Sparks, etc) for offering a few more options than our Southern cities (Henderson, Las Vegas, etc.), so let’s take a look!

Other Stores Locally

While they are not necessarily locally owned, you can still progress towards lower waste living by utilizing the bulk grocery options offered at grocery stores like Whole Foods and Sprouts. Bring your own bags and jars and refill on bulk dry goods.

Easy Products to Swap Out

I am pretty picky when it comes to shopping more sustainably because I want the quality and effectiveness of the product to still be great!

A few items I added into my daily life that are more sustainable swaps include:

  • Wool Dryer Balls (last longer and more efficient)
  • Glass Straws (I prefer them over stainless steel)
  • Reusable Shopping Bags
  • Refillable Soap
