Farmers Market Associate

Job Title: (Farmers) Market Associate

Summary: 

We’ve all been a little overwhelmed when trying to figure out how to reduce our waste, right? If you want to help guide people who are just starting their waste reduction journey as well as keep the refills flowing for the OGs, then consider joining the Ray’s Reusables team!

I’m looking to grow a team of people who are dedicated to providing a safe space for people to learn about and explore options for reducing their waste without fear of judgment or feeling ‘out-of-the-loop’. You don’t need to be an expert on all things sustainability or ‘zero’ waste to work with me (hell, I am not an expert in any of those things, I’m just some broad who bought a van!), all I ask is that you keep an open mind and seek out answers when you don’t know them! 

I believe that honesty and transparency are the best policies, and by being honest with our customers about our individual journeys we make it easier for them to feel comfortable sharing theirs. 

As a Market Associate you will have the opportunity to talk to people where they live! By visiting area farmers markets you bring the eco-store closer to their front door, and might be their first impression of Ray’s Reusables.

  • Greet customers and create a safe and welcoming environment for learning
