Sustainable Practices at Grassroots
The Grassroots Herb Garden is cozily situated in the back of our store. We grow over 10 varieties of organic herbs and native drought tolerant flowers that we eat and give away to customers and admirers. We are trying to do our part to help sustain our world.
Eco-Friendly Cleaning Supplies
The health and wellbeing of our staff and customers is something that we take very seriously at Grassroots. We use EcoLogic Solutions cleaning supplies for all of our cleaning purposes. We clean without compromise.
Locally Sourced Products
At Grassroots, we really care about what goes into our bodies. Sourcing locally means that our products are more fresh, healthier and use less fossil fuels during transport. We are doing our best to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels–one product at a time.
We recycle cans, cardboard, glass bottles and plastic. Our recycle bins are located in our indoor dining area and are easily accessible. Our world has limited resources, so we must reuse and up-cycle.
Environmentally Friendly Packaging
Our restaurant only uses environmentally friendly packaging which comes from recycled and reused plastic and paper. We also offer Grassroots reusable bags to help reduce our dependence on plastic and protect wildlife.
Building a healthy and vibrant community is paramount. We take it upon ourselves to be a community leader and give back as much as possible. We donate to the South Pasadena Educational Foundation (SPEF), the South Pasadena Middle School PTA, Los Angeles Children’s Music Foundation, the South Pasadena Public Library and Union Station Homeless Services.
