Nada Grocery (675 East Broadway)
Nada Grocery is the first of its kind grocery shop in Vancouver where almost all the products are sold packaging free to ensure zero waste. Everything sold here is either combustible or reusable; from fresh vegetable and fruits to glass jars and bamboo truth brushes. There’s also a range of smoothies and snacks available in the store. Surplus food items are donated to local food banks, nearby communities and neighbourhood houses.
