Zero Waste Grocery Store The Mighty Bin To Open In San Diego's North Park

March 3, 2021

Opening in San Diego's North Park later this year, The Mighty Bin is a 'zero-waste' grocery store specializing in unpackaged, plastic-free, organic, local and non-toxic foods and goods.

Following a career as an energy consultant and sustainability analyst, Isabelle DeMillan decided to put her passion for environmental conservation toward opening a more sustainable grocery concept. After raising over $35,000 through a successful KickStarter campaign, DeMillan is in the process of securing a spot within the small retail shopping plaza in North Park that also houses The Wise Ox and Empanada Kitchen to launch The Mighty Bin. 

The Mighty Bin will be a package free grocery store specializing in local, non-toxic, and sustainably-produced foods and goods. Customers will be able to bring in their own containers or purchase reusable containers in the store and shop a variety of products including nuts, beans, grains, cereals, baking products, oils, coffee, spices, dried fruit, produce, cleaning products and much more. Customers will also have the option to order online and pick up their groceries in-store. Not only will The Mighty Bin help minimize package waste, it will also allow customers to choose how much of a product they want to buy, preventing food waste and saving on costs. The Mighty Bin is also partnering with The Compost Group to bring an organic waste drop off site to the store.

The Mighty Bin is anticipated to open at 2855 El Cajon Boulevard, Suite 4, in San Diego's North Park by late 2021. For more information, visit
