It's the first zero-waste store to open doors in Latvia. People can use their own containers in the store and save a little bit on packaging.
The store interior utilizes secondhand goods to show that furniture and pallets can also be re-utilized.
According to the State Environmental Service, every Latvian utilizes a kilogram's worth of plastic bags weighing less than three grams each year, and more than a kilo of heavier bags.
Most plastic bags end up in dumps as only a fraction can be recycled.
Burka is located on Kr. Barona Street 59/61 and open 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on weekdays and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays.
