Why you should back yourself and stay true to your values. Paul Medeiros the co-founder of The Source Bulk Foods shares how he started a retail revolution offering local communities a zero-waste shopping option.

The first store opened in Mullumbimby only a few years ago and now they have over 40 stores in Australia, 2 in New Zealand and earlier this year they opened a store in the UK.

I fell in love with the store while I was living in Mullumbimby over two years ago. I could buy my pantry items as much or as little as I liked and they all went into brown paper bags, I would fill up jars with oil. The staff were always so happy and we would share recipes, I would learn more about conscious food choices. It was the best.

Expect to listen in to a conversation about conscious shopping, working nights, doing seven days and putting your values first.
