The year 2013 stands to bring quite a lot of changes when it comes to sustainability and healthier life choices. Thus, PUMA intends to start selling biodegradable and recyclable shoes and clothes, and vending machines in the US will start offering information concerning the caloric input of the beverages they sell.
Apparently, people living in Phoenix, Arizona will also witness the opening of a 100% plant-based supermarket. Thus, this innovative store will only sell fruits and vegetables.
In case anyone was wondering, VegCo's saying “no” to meat and dairy will by no means translate into customers' being deprived of the simple pleasures delicacies and baked goods more often than not offer.
Quite the contrary: people who choose to shop here will be able to delight their taste buds with various dishes than contain no meat or dairy.
Thus, opting for a vegetarian diet will become a significantly easier decision to make, seeing how virtually no compromises will have to be made in terms of taste.
informs us that this environmentally-friendly store, which is expected to open in the first few months of the following year, will also present customers with the opportunity to learn a thing or two about meat- and dairy-free dishes, thanks to a kitchen and a classroom intended solely for cooking demonstrations.
The people behind this project explain how, “VegCo is an environment completely free of all animal products and derivatives. We do not stock meat, seafood, dairy, eggs or honey. None of the items we sell contain any of these ingredients.”
Furthermore, “We sell an extensive assortment of plant-based foods, including a huge fresh produce section, whole grains and grain products (flours, breads, pastas, cereals, etc.), legumes, nuts, seeds, oils, sweeteners, spices, spreads, dips and sauces, snack foods, dairy alternatives, meat substitutes, and frozen foods. We also offer culinary equipment and a full- service deli and bakery.”
From where we stand, the opening of this new grocery store comes as good news indeed, and it is quite likely that certain green-oriented organizations that are presently doing their best in trying to convince people to become vegetarians will more than welcome this initiative.
