zero waste, Zero Waste Food?

My zero-waste peanut buttter has disappeared.

A while ago I bought bulk peanut butter from my grocery store thinking I could reuse the container over and over again to achieve more zero-waste. Thursday my plan was shattered. It’s all gone! All the many liquid bulk items that were available for years at Save-On-Foods are now history. Store remodeling in progress.Why did they do this? Was it pressure from the companies whose packaged products they stock? Were customers not buying the bulk products like honey and pie filling anymore? Was it because of food-safe/sanitary reasons? I plan to ask next time I go. The only thing I know for sure is that I have to decide on a new plan. Roots, one of the organic stores in town, has a grind your own peanut butter machine. I also could go old school and make my own peanut butter. Here is the Alton Brown recipe I will probably use http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/alton-brown/homemade-peanut-butter-recipe/index.html.

Is this progression or regression?

Wife, mom, concerned citizen of the earth. Striving towards intentional living rather than blindly following. Former Education Specialist for a corporation, I have now taken a step back to spend time with my family and work closer to home. Hoping to reduce our waste through refusing, reducing and reusing so that we will not have to recycle as much. Also, I love to explore zero-waste fast food and take pictures of my sucesses. I'm a fan of British comedies like Red Dwarf and Black Adder, Kevin Smith and his movies, Asian food, documentaries, biographies and going to Las Vegas on vacation. If someone told me I could only listen to the Beatles for the rest of my life I would die happy.
