Zero Waste Grocery Stores
Erewhon Market's story starts in 1966 when its founders were selling organic foods out of a 10’ x 20’ stall below street-level in Boston. Now, Erewhon Market is a certified B-Corp offering a good selection of standard bulk foods and package-free produce!
"Is it crazy to drive cross-country just to visit this shop? Because we're tempted! With over 500 refillable bulk goods, Regrocery probably has exactly what you're looking for. They also strive to source only the highest quality organic, non-GMO and clean products. They encourage customers to bring their own empty/clean/dry containers from home and have 100% post-consumer recycled paper bags or reusable glass jars/bottles for purchase."

Sun Cafe is local, vegan, AND organic. They make almost everything from scratch including their own cheeses, chorizo, mayo and butter–always vegan. They've been named 1 of the 10 Best Restaurants in Los Angeles - twice!
