Making Package-Free Accessible + Affordable with Kate Pepler of The Tare Shop


“I think there’s often the perception that living package-free or a lower-waste lifestyle is more expensive. But it doesn’t have to be. I hope that it will catch on, and ultimately, it’s just better for us if this becomes more mainstream.

— Kate Pepler, Founder of The Tare Shop

In this episode:

Join Kate Pepler, Founder of SheEO Venture The Tare Shop, and Hannah Cree, SheEO Venture in Residence, as they talk about sustainability, package-free shopping, and Kate’s journey into entrepreneurship.
