Alberta Co-op Grocery in Portland boldly goes where others fear to tread

In our germ-phobic, douse-everything-with-antibacterials world, it's nice to see some stores are still willing to allow a container swap. Using antibacterials such as triclosan kills off the harmless germs, leaving the really nasty ones to flourish and open up a can of whoop ass on us, says the New York Times (though not in those exact words).

The Alberta Co-op Grocery is in the Alberta Arts District of Portland. The Ft. Collins Food Co-op in Colorado lets you leave clean containers for others to use, too.
