Good Life Market
Big things are happening!
We have an investor! We have a leased office space/ warehouse space! We will be starting a delivery service first ( think of a modern milk-man scenario). After we have run the delivery model for 6 month +, one of our financial groups we pitched to will support us for the opening of the brick and mortar store! Let’s make it happen Portland!
It’s happening guys! Please consider funding us here: www.indiegogo.com/projects/good-life-market-delivery#/
Want to be among the first to try out our zero waste delivery service? Go to the GLM Delivery store site which is not yet taking orders, and sign up in the footer and we shall keep you in the loop with news updates and eventually an invite to our online store!
package free shopping
Imagine entering your local grocery store to buy a week’s worth of goods. You stock up on your morning coffee, produce, protein and daily household needs. But when you get home you realize that you also stocked up on something else: packaging. From styrofoam containers to plastics, granola bar wrappers and fruit snack individualized everything wraps-we’ve all seen how much excess waste we produce on a day-to-day basis.
Good Life Market will be the first grocery store in Portland to sell all products unpackaged or if in packaging, compostable and reusable—in fact, almost everything in the shop will be compostable or reusable, from milk, eggs, cheese, fresh fruits and vegetables (all sourced from local farms) to many types of glass jars, kitchen and household aides, laundry accouterments, to health and beauty products like zero waste make up and bamboo toothbrushes.
When in Portland...
If you start getting hungry while picking through the produce and amazing array of bulk snacks, goodies, and baked goods, there will be an in-house cafe that offers local coffee and espresso as well as zero waste snacks and baked items. All surplus food items will be donated to local food banks, neighbourhood houses or local community gardens.
The Cafe space will double as the space for the workshop and events.
educate the community
Good Life Market's Cafe wing will double as a space after-hours for Workshops to educate people on many zero waste lifestyle tips, tricks and practical tactics. Good Life Market will have a membership option that will allow for discounts on class series as well as products in store. Some workshops will offer opportunities to learn how to make DIY products, throw zero waste dinner parties, or make zero waste kids crafts and highlight the concepts of a lean kitchen and eating seasonally. Some of the topics will be, but not limited to:
Drying Foods ( DIY fruit roll ups and jerky )
Gardening Year Round
*DIY ___fill in the blank- some will be:
pastas and sauces ...
Sustainability - promoting the pursuit of living a full and happy life in partnership with this good earth, promoting preservation and sharing in what natures provides
Affordability- educating why cheap food is not really cheap in the long run, and that pursuing a zero waste lifestyle can help households balance budgets while living more healthy and happy lives while fighting needless consumerism
Hospitality- providing a welcoming space with zero judgement, and offering a space to allow people to come together in this same spirit of enjoying and sharing in a good life
We have recreated a way to get things moving faster while we wait for funding to open the brick and mortar store- we are doing a delivery service! Please check out our www.goodlifemarketdelivery.com or our Facebook page for more info.
