Ditty Bag, A Zero Waste Market & Cafe Opens in Mystic


Every time I bag up my cans and bottles, I cringe. All that plastic! But Ditty Bag, a brand new shop in Mystic, will have you rethinking your recycling. This zero-waste market and cafe provides all the earth-friendly goods we need. Fill your own bottle (or buy a glass jar) from the giant dispensers of Forest Sunrise shampoo, organic olive oil, tea tree all-purpose soap, laundry detergent, and more. Find washer and dryer sheets, recycled toilet paper and tissues, ingenious flip caps, pumps, and spray tops for Mason jars and bamboo toothbrushes. Fill your bags with bulk beans, nuts, and spices. We think the handmade block of dish soap and wooden brush makes a sweet host/ess gift. Mama’s Suds, heart-shaped toilet bombs will keep your potty fresh with sodium bicarbonate, essential oils of tea tree, peppermint, and orange.

A few refrigerated cases house a selection of that crazy delish local Terra Firma Farms yogurt and chocolate milk, plus Mothership’s reheatable vegan and vegetarian dinners. 

And you can grab a cappuccino while you browse! If you aim to live a cleaner life, throw out less, reuse more, head straight here.
