=partner with existing businesses to get the word-out

I am wondering if we could partner with existing businesses to provide member discounts as well as drive up sales for them. I feel a little bit like the models of offering mini co-ops has worked well for migratory co-ops in the past.

True Social Reform From The Bottom Up

I attended the coop meeting last night and a subject was mentioned about BLM and a statement and coop position for social Reform. That’s awesome! Then our group would not be opposed to something better and more strategic focused that help save our country and address the racial inequality, the Inequity and repairs our community and nation. It has the power and potential to catapult our Coopertive into orbit. It’s something we all can embrace that inspires and empowers, We this people. I’m opening to sharing with our group!

Focus on zero waste, reduce packaging, and unprocessed foods

Are the bulk bin products coming in gigantic plastic bags from the farm to the market? Are the organic kale chips made with processed oils and coming in a plastic bag? These are the questions that go through my mind as a shopper, carry brands who specifically use alternative recyclable and compostable packaging....otherwise do not sell the product and keep it simple ! Unless there are allergies involved I do not want to see any single use plastics!

Keep it eco and animal-friendly

Hi LBGC! Would love to see this store be as plastic free as possible! Encouraging members to bring their own mesh produce bags, reusable jars, etc when shopping could cut costs for the co-op and keep unnecessary single use plastic out of the environment. Also, making this be a 100% vegan co-op would spark a national conversation, putting it on the map! Thousands of animals lives could be saved if it is an all vegan place to shop. The vegan population in Long Beach is already huge, and growing even more rapidly as the animal rights/vegan movements gain momentum. Hope this happens sooner than later!

Let's get this going!

First -- Agree with Chi, please update the homepage member count if we are indeed at 500+ members. Suspect memberships will pick up the closer we get to 1,000. Second -- With all the public events sponsored within Long Beach, many of them free, please ramp up promotions and marketing to potential new members. One suggestion would be to set up an instant up at the "Concerts in the Park" held summer Thursdays at Marine Stadium. Lot's of community oriented people.

Is the member/owner count up-to-date?

Please update your member/owner count on the main page if needed. When I bought a share today I got a confirmation number in the five hundred range. I assumed that meant that 210 member/owners as listed on the website isn't up-to-date. Forgive me if I assumed wrong. Chi

Focus on variety, not just organic

Hi LBGC! I am so excited you guys exist! I was considering buying a share, but what stopped me is the emphasis on organic food. I am a HUGE fan of sustainable and local produce, and was really disappointed by the grocery stores (or lack thereof) when I moved from Berkeley to Long Beach. My hesitation is not because I am against organic food, but because I'm concerned that a grocery store that tries to only carry organic food will be inaccessible because of price. A great example of a store that carries both organic and non-organic food and is absolutely a community center is the Berkeley Bowl in Berkeley. Its certainly unfortunate that organic food tends to cost more, but its a reality, and I want to make sure I'm investing in a grocery store that is accessible to EVERYONE in the community, not only middle/upper class people. Happy to hear thoughts and opinions!
