Park Slope Food Coop, NYC

The Park Slope Food Coop is a consumer-owned grocery store selling
a million dollars worth of groceries a week—more than double the per
sq ft sales of an average Whole Foods. Yet it occupies a surprisingly small space. Over the years, the co-op has instituted a number of initiatives to reduce waste. Much of the food, from produce to dry goods, is purchased in bulk quantity rather than individual packages. See Case Study pdf.
