“Join 1% for the Planet for a shopping night meet & greet at Nada!
Enjoy snacks and mingling while you shop the store from 7-8p. Following when the store closes to public at 8pm we'll share beverages and hear Nada's story firsthand, as well as network updates from the region and beyond, and learn about how we can support the movement. All are welcome: current members and those curious to learn more.
Nada is a package-free grocer on a mission to cultivate a better world by inspiring people to change the way they shop for groceries. We envision an unpackaged future: a lighter world that values a food system free of excess and waste to support the health of both people and planet. Tackling the largest problems in the food system today, Nada offers 100% package-free groceries. We ask our customers to #BYOC (bring your own container) to reduce packaging waste and encourage them to buy only what they need. We deliver the next step to a healthier food system, from sourcing organic veggies from urban farms to making sure that surplus food ends up in the hands of those who need it the most. We’re all about community and are supporting Vancouver’s Greenest City 2020 Action Plan, Healthy City Strategy, and Vancouver Food Strategy goals.
