• Bulk

    low waste grocery shopping

Seward Co-op opened in 1972–and most of the store offerings were bulk! Decades later, bulk remains a pillar of our store. Bulk is a great way to reuse containers and pick up only the amount you need for your recipe, cutting costs and food waste. Our Bulk section includes baking products, snacks, nuts, and granola–as well as teas, wellness and beauty products, and tap kombucha. Bring your own containers or use the ones we provide. No matter how you do it, you’re part of the co-op’s bulk legacy.

Positive Environmental Impacts

Seward Co-op has grown with purpose throughout its history and remains committed to positive environmental impacts. One way we demonstrate this commitment is through the Bulk Department, which remains the heart of our stores.

In 2019, we sold $3.2 million in bulk products.

Fair Trade

We contribute to a more equitable economy by offering quality products through intentional sourcing. Fair trade helps make the right choices the easiest ones.

In 2018, we sold $2.8 million fair trade products.

Nourish staples

Nourish staples highlight some of the co-op’s most affordable foods and Wellness products.

In 2018, we sold $2.7 million of Nourish staple products.
