E101 New Member – The Nada Shop
The Nada Shop opened in April and was started by 25-year-old Samantha Simone. She said she envisioned the shop and knew she had to move forward with it when she grew frustrated that there was nowhere to go to get good quality, everyday products for refill.“I was really tired of single-use plastics for everyday items,” Simone said. “I wanted a place where these items could be refilled and a place that would make this type of lifestyle easier and more accessible to people.”
“Every product has a story and a lifecycle before and after it reaches the consumer’s hands, and at the shop we strive to provide that transparency to our customers,” Simone said. The shop also carries popular zero-waste items such as reusable straws and coffee mugs and not-so-commonplace zero-waste items such as reusable paper towels and face wipes. Many products are consciously sourced and procured, from small batch artisan beauty products, to organic cotton bags, to straw holders with upcycled fabric.
When possible Simone sources local, organic products that are good for people and the planet, but still work efficiently, such as Black + Berry, Raw Elements, and Simply Straws. The shop also carries popular eco-friendly brands such as Better Life, Fat & The Moon, and Biokleen. Simone said she’s always had a passion for helping people and the environment and she knew early on she wanted to start a business that channels that energy and enthusiasm.
