The Mindful Monday Minute: Eco-Friendly Shopping at Tare LA

We are currently living in a world that is changing drastically, seemingly by the day. At youRhere, we believe that, despite these changes, there are ways of making our world more sustainable, cleaner, and with less packaging right now. A couple of years ago, we started implementing our own reusable shopping bags in supermarkets, resulting in way less plastic bags that many just throw away after the first use. Right now, you can do your weekly eco-friendly shopping at Tare Grocery in Los Angeles: “Package-free grocery store helping you avoid single-use plastic. We strive to source only the highest quality organic, non-GMO and clean products.”

Located in Highland Park, Tare LA is set to be the coolest new grocery shop in LA. With a package-free shopping experience, there is minimal waste for both suppliers and buyers. They encourage buyers to bring their own reusable jars and glasses when coming in for an errand.

Why Sustainable?

Well, because it makes sense. It’s healthier for us in all aspects of life. It can improve health, increase safety, and save money. For example, driving less reduces air pollution, decreases wearing and tearing of our streets and roads, and of course, reduces spending. When it comes to grocery stores, they are facing an uphill battle. Food waste is one of the biggest issues when it comes to grocery stores. Not only is so much food being wasted every day, but so much of the packaging involved (plastic wrapping, boxes full of food, tin cans…) are being wasted and not recycled properly as well.

Sustainable grocery stores help reduce the use of plastic bags and by having little-to-no packaging on the products they sell.
