Our Commitment to Being Your Most Sustainable Grocer

At Spud we work hard to make local food more accessible and sustainable. Our sustainability commitment includes reducing waste and operating efficiently so our customers, local producers and the planet can benefit. By ordering groceries through Spud, you’re helping us maintain a closed loop delivery system that reuses packing materials and sources and delivers locally and efficiently. This is what we pride ourselves on and what sets us apart from other grocers.



1. How to Request a Bin Pick-Up:

We aren’t just carpooling your groceries, we will also carpool your bins for you. We pick up bins on route with other shoppers’ groceries. Let us do the heavy lifting while you just click the button below to request a pickup for your reusable bin. Then, you simply place your bin back where it was dropped off and let the sustainability magic happen.

For cardboard boxes, please flatten them and leave them out for pick up when your next order arrives, if you would like to know more about what happens to that cardboard box, read our blog on our cutting-edge cardboard shredder!


2. Reusables:

Place any reusable items back into the bin/box for your scheduled pickup. These items include:

  • Freezer packs

  • Freezer sleeves (silver bubble packs)

  • Reusable glass jars from Avalon, Jarr and Earnest Ice Cream

  • Pink plastic single use pouches from BeFresh products (we are turning these into outdoor furniture with Terracycle!)



3. Subscribe & Save:

Among other perks, like saving 5-8 % on groceries, those with recurring order subscriptions receive the benefit of their orders being packed in reusable bins from the very first order . A subscription order is the best way to save money and schedule regular groceries without the hassle of having to start a new order each time.

The system will automatically generate the orders to pull into the cart each week ahead of the delivery. You can set up your subscription to receive your order either weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly and even mix and match between these frequencies for different items.
