Welcome to Better Ancestors, and our weekly video series throughout 2021. This series is dedicated to telling the stories of those amazing people in our world who are trying to be better ancestors to future generations. The planet is experiencing catastrophic environmental disaster, and it is up to us to think long term and take action to ensure a sustainable and healthy future for all of humanity. Using the stories of those already leading the charge in sustainability as inspiration, we should all ask ourselves, what can I do to be a better ancestor?
This week Better Ancestors visits Refill Nation, a plastic packaging-free bulk food store. The idea is simple: bring your own containers, refill what you need, stop creating waste. And it is so easy! Jackson Mulligan, the founder of Refill Nation, saw the need for a package-free store in the West Auckland community. Now its a thriving business which massively reduces waste, offers quality healthy foods with less chemicals, and creates an inviting space to connect with the local community. Find your nearest bulk store and help support waste reduction today!
