Make Your Life Slightly More Delicious with Homemade Salad Dressing

posted on Tuesday, March 3rd, 2020

Modern life is about managing a delicate balance in so many things—cost and convenience, quality and time, effort and reward. But some things are just a clear win: that’s how I’ve come to feel about making my own salad dressing. I know, you’re thinking, “Salad dressing? Salad dressing of all things?” Yes, salad dressing. I […]

The Perfect, Toasty Winter Snack: Tamari Almonds

posted on Saturday, February 29th, 2020

Mid-winter brings a welcome introspective energy. I’ve been lucky to take part in yoga teacher training, which means my weekends are immersed in quiet reflection, movement, learning, and building community. Long days at the yoga studio are rich with learning and connection. But guess what: even yogis get hangry! This is why it’s crucial to […]

My Life as a Karma Zero-waster: Glass Containers

posted on Tuesday, February 25th, 2020

As a zero-waster, glass containers are a must-have. I was surprised at how much I missed my containers upon moving to Toronto. In France, my journey as a zero-waster had been a long one, and I had built up my container stock steadily year after year so that it matched my needs one step at […]

How to Eat Your Beer and Reduce Climate Change

posted on Tuesday, October 1st, 2019

My name is Dihan Chandra. Karma Co-op was the first retail location to carry our products. Here’s my story. Like you, I need to do something more about the climate crisis. I feel I should be doing a lot more to have significant impact especially if there is less than twelve years before irreversible damage. […]

Getting to the Root of Hydroponic Farming: Vegetables Grown in Water?

posted on Friday, May 31st, 2019

Ever heard of growing food without soil? That’s hydroponics: a method of growing crops entirely in water, without the use of soil. It’s a closed system where all environmental elements are fully controlled to produce an optimal growing environment. Roots are fed nutrient-rich water in an indoor space such as a greenhouse or even a […]

Ask Reece

posted on Thursday, May 23rd, 2019

Dear Reece, Apparently, a lot of olive oil is adulterated. This is extremely alarming. Could you tell me if the bulk oil at Karma is guaranteed to be what it says it is? In this vein, I have regular lunches with a friend, where we take turns hosting. He prepares lovely meals, but often with […]

Bulk dental floss at Karma

posted on Monday, May 6th, 2019

Unlike rows of new bulk bins, or the recently installed kombucha bar, there are many other new arrivals at Karma that can easily escape our notice. One such product is silk dental floss. A brief mention of it in the Karma e-Chronicle a few months back caught my attention. Shortly thereafter, I bought a Flosspot and […]

Almond milk and bee health

posted on Thursday, June 7th, 2018

A Karma member recently approached the Food Issues Committee with a concern about the connection between the almond milk industry and bee decline. Since Karma carries two different brands of almond milk — Blue Diamond, which is conventional, and Pacific Foods, which is organic — it’s worthwhile to consider whether buying one over the other […]

Nutritional yeast

posted on Friday, May 4th, 2018

What bulk item at Karma do you think triggers the most questions of James Byrne, Karma’s bulk, meat, and cheese purchaser? I’ll give you a hint: Read the title of this article. Members are more curious about those bright yellow nutritional yeast flakes than any of the other bins and tubs of bulk products. First […]
