If you haven’t already noticed, being eco-friendly is quite the rage as of late (as it should be). From fast food chains banning plastic straws to encouraging shoppers to bring their own bags for their grocery shopping, efforts to reduce waste created by single-use plastics are being increasingly adopted in Singapore.

In efforts to save our earth one plastic at a time we first saw the opening of Unpackt back in April – the first zero-waste grocery store in Singapore.

Now, we have Reprovisions – a newly opened zero-waste bulk store in Jurong Point.

Bring Your Own Bags

According to the Singapore Environment Council, we’re still producing a massive amount of plastic waste – 815,200 tonnes last year to be specific. However it’s great to see that movements to reduce our reliance on single-use plastic are gaining traction here too.

Recently opened in Jurong Point (11 Oct), customers are expected to bring their own reusable package to bag their food items and sundries.

Reprovisions mainly sells healthy fare such as nuts and dried fruits as well as staples like pasta and spice blends from Anthony The Spicemaker.

Adopting the weigh-and-pay concept, customers you will have to weigh your containers, jars or bottles on a weighing scale provided so that the weight can be noted down and excluded from your total bill.

Here are some of the items you can expect from Reprovisions:

Spice mixes from local spice shop Anthony the Spice Maker going between S$5.40 to S$6.30. From basics such as ground turmeric and ginger to mixes such as tandoori and black pepper crab, you can just buy what you need!

They also carry pasta from popular Italian brand Barilla going for $0.46 per 100 grams. A box of Barilla spaghetti from the usual supermarkets would cost about $2.55 for 500g.

And also 6 different types of rice for as low as $0.25 per 100g.

How To Purchase

Customers who bring their own packaging will have to weigh their empty containers before filling it with their desired items. As you go about your shopping, write down the product codes before dispensing or scooping the products you want.

Reprovisions also provides kraft bags and reusable jars in case you don’t have your own container on hand.

This encourages customers to head down with a “shopping list” in mind so as to curb impulse purchases and reduce waste.

Reprovisions is an amazing social enterprise that can hopefully move Singaporeans away from plastic wastage and being more eco-friendly.
