What is the Carbon footprint of a zero waste grocery store?
Working with Nada Grocery, this project assesses the impacts of COVID-19 on the Carbon footprint of a zero waste grocery store and provides solutions to keep the zero waste movement resilient in a post COVID-19 world.
What does it mean to be “Zero Waste” during a Pandemic?
Nada Grocery Inc. is a Canadian grocery store, located in Vancouver, BC, that strives to minimize food and packaging waste as British Columbia’s first zero waste grocery store. Nada strives to provide transparent and ethically sourced products from local farmers and merchants to provide the best products for its customers.
As a zero waste store, Nada not only minimizes packaging through its “BYOC” (bring your own container) program, but also combats food waste through purchasing imperfect produce and transforming nearly expired food into pre-pared meals. Nada is a certified B-Corp and a member of 1% for the planet.
