Food on-the-go, but without waste

To-go food is a place where sustainability can often be overlooked. The idea of using a bag or foil we won't have to clean can seem so easy, and we often tell ourselves "just this one time," but those times add up and our carbon footprint grows. The amount of information and products out there can be daunting to wade through for the average consumer, but, lucky for you, that's literally what we're here for. Below, we've called outa few of our MVPs in this article to help make your transition into sustainable food travel simpler.

A Post about Composting

It's Earth Month! So we're doubling down on the effort to get you all useful information for living more sustainably - starting today (and ignoring April Fool's altogether).

Local Delivery

  You don't have to tell us that Asheville locals don't like to "go Downtown."  If we had a nickel for every time we heard that in the shop, we probably wouldn't have to sell anything.

That's $6 for zero fossil fuels burnt in transit and the supporting of two small Asheville businesses. You can place an order online & have it delivered via bicycle right to your doorstep within 48 hours. Just select "Local Delivery" at checkout & we'll get...

A note about refill containers

  An important note about containers and our refill station. We LOVE the creative reuse of bottles, jars, and vessels of all shapes and sizes that we've seen come through the shop to be used again and again. We want to stress, though, that these containers must be CLEAN & DRY. Yes, that applies to containers that are being refilled with the same product. We're operating a publicly interactive space and having to make judgement calls about whether or not a wet substance from unknown origin is trustworthy or not is not a place we want to be in - even outside of a pandemic. We sanitize surfaces regularly, but are requiring that our customers help us make this process...
