The story behind our Closed Loop Clean-Up Buckets: 

At The Waste Less Shop, most of our bulk refillable products come in 55 gallon drums or 5 gallon buckets. Since we opened, we have been saving our buckets and donating them to people on Craigslist to repurpose for composting, storage, or whatever... one woman was a knitter and said they were perfect for storing her yarn.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
One day, our friend James Kao came into the shop with a genius idea. He recommended starting a beach cleanup program using our empty buckets! We were immediately in and got to work developing the program. It didn't take long to hit a snag- we didn't have a place to clean the buckets at our tiny storefront. We needed to bring in more help. Local business HopSaint Brewing Company was more than happy to lend their commercial sinks and even offered to co-host the program, we were back in action! ⠀
