Mission 🙏

The transformational story that’s become THE BULK HOUSE started in cofounder Carrie’s cluttered apartment. Her life, like so many of us in today’s ultra-consumerist society, had become weighed down by stuff — stuff on top of stuff, and more stuff below.

She’d had enough. As difficult as it was to begin letting go of belongings she didn’t use, with each item she gave away, she gained peace of mind. The less stuff crammed into her apartment space, the more headspace she gained.

Her healthy habit of decluttering evolved into zero waste lifestyle. Living with less, choosing environmentally friendly products, and producing as little trash as possible — she’d never been happier. THE BULK HOUSE was born.

Fast forward to today, THE BULK HOUSE is China’s authority of all things zero waste lifestyle. Carrie and zero waste advocate Joe take a community-centered approach to provide activities and educational events — and the products to help people practice minimal consumption more easily.

So, get with THE BULK HOUSE — emphasize environmental protection and sustainability in your day-to-day choices. There’s a good chance you’ll become happier and healthier in the process.
