Our Team

Zero Waste Bulk was founded by Ellin Park and Kevin Choi who met and fell in love during their first year of studies at the University of Waterloo.

Ellin Park

Owner & Founder

Ellin graduated with a major in psychology and a minor in cognitive science. Ellin is the heart and brain of Zero Waste Bulk, originally envisioning the idea of a zero waste grocery store and directing the path of the business. Introverted but passionate about making the world a better place, she works full time on Zero Waste Bulk. When she is not working on Zero Waste Bulk, she enjoys learning about psychology, philosophy, experimenting with vegan cooking, and eating all the vegan foods.

Kevin Choi


Kevin graduated with a major in computer science and a minor in combinatorics & optimization. Kevin is the arms and legs of the company, helping move things along during his free time with his technical expertise while still working full time as a software engineer. He is an essential moral support, giving Ellin the confidence to pursue her visions for Zero Waste Bulk. His other interests include gaming, coding, sci-fi, vegan cooking, and making bad puns.
