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!
