source natural or organic foods that focus on soil health and longevity to yield nutrient-rich crops
strive to first source from local farms, when feasible, to offer fresh produce and increase local economic viability while reducing transport time (carbon emissions); for produce not locally sourced, will target the mid-Atlantic region which requires less transport time than produce from the west coast
strive to avoid the use plastics in the store, sourcing 'naked' produce, offering bulk choices and alternative eco-friendly packaging
source non-GMO natural organic food and products free of chemicals, pesticides, preservatives, additives, artificial flavors and colors
focus on plant-based food and product offerings (a few of our products may contain beeswax such as in medicinal salves, lip balms, etc.)
provide a quality supplement section to fortify health
competitively price organic and natural products; bulk choices will create savings for customers while also reducing consumer plastic packaging waste
when margins are strong on specific product lines, discount the product (i.e. supplements, skincare, etc.) to compete with online competitors for customer savings
to utilize the store's space to offer various opportunities for enrichment to further create health and well-being within the community. Examples are pop-up shops from local suppliers, evening classes, meditation sessions, etc.
due to COVID guidelines, we will slowly start embracing this core value when we feel it is safe for our community and guidelines have been relaxed.
