Hi and welcome to Getting in the Loop. I’m Katie and today I’m talking with Rowan Drury of Sweden’s first plastic package-free shop, Gram.

Rowan Drury founded Sweden’s first plastic package-free shop Gram in 2016 after searching for a more sustainable way to buy food. At GRAM Everything is sold loose and by weight. Shoppers are encouraged to bring their own reusable containers so that they do not have to throw away anything when they get home. When she’s not running the shop, Rowan can be found lecturing about zero-waste lifestyles, supporting others in their quest to start up zero-waste shops and initiatives and advise companies about how to reduce their waste and climate impact.

In this episode, you will hear about why Rowan started Gram and we dive into the zero-waste lifestyle.
