Why We Chose Conscious Packaging

Food packaging makes up a huge proportion of plastic waste in the U.S., and at New Indian Supermarket, Tracy, we are proud to be joining many other stores in the fight for saving our planet. We call this planet our home, and it's high time we all start adopting practices that will help save our home. Besides being Tracy's biggest Indian grocery store, we also pride ourselves on being eco-warriors. Not only do we bring you the best groceries and fresh produce at the best prices, but we also ensure that all our practices are eco-friendly.


Conscious packaging isn't just great for the environment, it also helps to keep your groceries fresher for a longer period of time. When you come to shop at our store, you can either choose to carry your own bag from home or use the eco-friendly packaging we offer at our store. We encourage all our customers to join the fight for the environment and also avoid single-use plastic. Therefore, plastic is off the menu at our store too. If you are wondering how you can be an eco-warrior yourself, here are some tips:

  • Bring your own bag while shopping 
  • Shift focus to a more plant-based diet
  • Avoid wastage and overbuying 
  • Reuse food containers 
  • Recycle and repurpose!
