NEW YORK (WABC) -- Think about how much waste comes from a typical trip to the grocery store, including grocery bags, boxes and containers.

While some of it gets recycled, most ends up in the landfill. But two local businesses are hoping to change that.

At Katerina Bogatireva's grocery store, what you see is food. What you won't see is packaging. No labels, not boxes - just the food. And if you forget a container you can buy one there in a variety of sizes. The hope is that you will reuse it.
