The Big Carrot BYO and Eco-Points Programs
At The Big Carrot, we strive to curate and sell the best food possible. This is reflected in our core values – organic, non-GMO, fairly traded, local and sustainable seafood. We also aim for best practices in our operations, to have as little impact on the planet as we can. This is a challenge as a grocery retailer but our goal is to do our best and always find ways to improve.
In early 2019 we struck a Waste Reduction Working Group to review different areas of our business including packaging, garbage disposal and customer incentives. Some of our actions were easy to implement and others have longer-term deadlines but the good news is, we came up with some new, innovative ways that we can all do a little better.
BYO incentives – These simple habits will have the greatest impact on reducing the waste we produce.

We are excited to share our new ECO-POINTS programs with you!
We selected over 300 items in-store that are zero waste, reusable or reduce our impact on the planet. Some examples include:
– reusable lunch containers
– glass straws
– the DIVA cup
– everything in our cleaning section(!!)
– milk in returnable bottles
– Bulk (3.8L+) and unpackaged soap
– And many more
These items are indicated with an ECO-POINTS tag and you will receive 10x your rewards points every time you purchase these items. The list will grow as more eco-friendly products come on the market but this is a great place to start!
Thank you for shopping with us, we really do believe we have the best customers in the city! We know that TOGETHER we can make a difference with small and big actions!
