Mostly vegan bulk food and zero waste store - Edit

Wonderful zero waste shop that offers a large range of bulk goods: grains, legumes, nuts, seeds, spices etc.

Most cosmetic and laundry products are vegan, some items contains beeswax (just ask/check the ingredients list). Products such as shampoo and laundry detergent can also be bought in bulk (reusable containers are also available).

Other items include: sanitary products (washable pads and menstrual cups); toothbrushes; mugs; bamboo, metal and glass straws; as well as a range of locally crafted items (shopping bags etc.)

Regular zero waste themed workshops frequently take place here - details can be found on the Hive Bulk Foods Facebook page.

An idea that benefits us all - Edit

The Hive background seems to be something that is truly missing in food shops (and mentalities...) around the world: as little waste as possible, aiming for zero.
You should bring your own jars/bags/whatever you use to stow food (they do have some paper bags available if you forget) to keep what you buy - there is a lot of seeds, nuts, even salt, all sold by weight (bulk) which is a lot more economic.
Another part of the shop focuses on supporting projects that have a social background, selling their products at the Hive (felt vases from Burma, Jams, shea butter,...).
It is truly a fantastic project that deserves such high praise.

First bulk store in Kuala Lumpur - Edit

This is the first known store that sells bulk items and focuses on zero-waste without the use of plastic whenever possible. Everything sold here is vegan except for honey sold by the orang asli farm and a few other stuff like mixed nuts with chocolates and dog biscuit. Most of the things sold here is vegan. Local farmers also sell vegetables here 3 times a week on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.
