Low prices, and an even lower environmental impact. This is the idea of Negozio Leggero, a store that was born in Turin and has now opened in Milan, where you can find 1500 products in bulk at a very competitive cost and with full respect for the environment. We recently discovered the store in Milan along via Anfossi and we were really impressed: here is some more information!
The idea of Negozio Leggero is as simple as it is revolutionary: they propose a new way to shop at competitive prices without producing waste and being able to choose from a large number of high-quality products sold in bulk. How so? Easy! Here, shopping is done “on tap”, which means you only pay for the product you purchase, saving on the cost of packaging and thereby drastically reducing the amount of waste produced. At Negozio Leggero, you’ll have to bring your containers from home and fill them with your choice of products. Should you run out, don’t worry because you can buy other ones and reuse them every time you return!
What can you find? Pretty much everything: coffee, biscuits, various types of muesli, candy, flour, dried fruit, cereal and mixed legumes, pasta, products to make pastries, all sorts of spices, tea blends and herbal teas, eggs, oil, wine, artisanal beers and so on so forth! The products, which are mainly organic, ecological and vegan, are analyzed and selected by the Ecologos environmental research.
Next to the food department there is also an extensive area dedicated to the home, with vegetable-based laundry detergents, dishwasher and laundry soaps.
Negozio Leggero can even satisfy the needs of anyone who is looking for 100% natural skin and hair care products without parabens, dyes and animal derivatives. Facial creams, body lotions, shampoos and hair conditioners, lotions, masks and products of all kinds that will satisfy even the toughest skin! And even men will have a blast in here: they can find anything from after-shave brushes to natural and environmentally friendly razors and conditioners.
An example of what you can buy? With just over 10€, you can take home 4 servings of ready to cook legume soups, 4 servings of vegetable patty ingredients, 4 fresh eggs, 300 grams of mixed seeds for salads, 300 grams of dried fruit, 150 grams of green tea and 50 goji berries. Prices that are more competitive than the large retailers and, most importantly, without any waste!
For those of you who don’t have time to make your way to the shop in Milan’s Cinque Giornate area, there is also a convenient home delivery service (by bike, of course!).
If you too want to add value and quality to your shopping experience through the purchase of products issued from a short supply chain at affordable prices and most importantly without all that useless packaging, then you should definitely stop by!
