Residents of the inner city of Johannesburg, South Africa are given access to a new type of shopping experience: a litter-free, mobile grocery store.
The bus, called Skhaftin after the local slang for “lunch box,” sells fresh and dry foods like rice, beans and lentils as it makes its way around town.
Shoppers bring their own containers, while avoiding the use of packaging that may harm the environment.
Founder Elka Stein and her team came up with the concept during the pandemic, to allow people to obtain healthy, yet affordable food in a sustainable way, without the need to travel far from home.
