The Tare Shop is a local business that opened up in the North End of Halifax October 3, 2018. Our mission is to help Haligonians reduce their personal waste and invest in sustainable lifestyles.
You are able to grab your coffee, groceries, beauty supplies and more, all package-free. We also host engaging community events such as workshops and lectures.
Like any great idea, The Tare Shop was born out of a burning need and desire to do better. Founded by Dalhousie alumni Kate Pepler after completing a BA in Sustainability, Environmental Science and a minor in Marine Biology. For a year after completing her degree, she was feeling overwhelmed with the doom and gloom narrative of our Earth’s health. This helped her “Eureka!” moment of creating Tare – which combines all of her passions – oceans, reducing plastic pollution, environmental education, and fostering community – into one business.
