The Bulk is Green Council (BIG), the leading organization dedicated to educating shoppers on the economical and environmental benefits of shopping the bulk aisles, has launched its retailer recruitment for the fifth annual National Bulk Foods Week. The celebration is scheduled for October 11-17 in the bulk aisles of grocery stores and natural food co-ops across the nation. National Bulk Foods Week represents the organization’s highest-profile initiative, and the growing number of participating retailers each year – last year more than 1,400 retailers took part – points to the growing trend of shopping the bulk bins.
Bulk Is Green Council announces Fresh Market, Store #105 as the 1st place winner in support of National Bulk Week.
