There, owner Stephanie Lentz has giant containers of everything from pantry staples including rice, dried beans, and spices to household goods like shampoo and laundry detergent.
Why go through the trouble of opting for packaging-free goods? Lentz wants to help you lighten your carbon footprint — and feel good while doing it.
