Hello and thank you for your interest our my co-ops/buying clubs. There are 3 co-op/buying clubs that support Natural, Organic, Green Living at reasonable prices. There is also have information for a 4th co-op that we participate in for Produce! Periodically there may also be some temporary or one time co-ops if and when there are find good opportunities. Information about all the co-ops will be posted to this blog. Many, if not all, of the co-ops will involve google documents. On the homepage of the blog, click the clink "Contact us to Participate" if you do not already have the information to access our account for google docs.

If you know someone who might be interested please feel free to direct them to this blog. Anyone interested in using the SW drop point for Azure Standard, MUST contact Keslie directly (through the "Contact us to Participate" link on the homepage of Living Healthy in Las Vegas).

Azure Standard
They specialize in natural, organic, earth-friendly foods and products. They are based in Oregon and deliver to Las Vegas once per month. You can go to their website http://www.azurestandard.com/ to learn more about them and browse their products.

Frontier
They also sell natural, organic, earth-friendly products, but they do not sell "food". They specialize in Herbs, Spices and Essential Oils, while also carrying hundred of other brands you know and love at around 40-45% off retail prices! If both Azure and Frontier sell the item Frontier is cheaper most of the time.

Bountiful Baskets
This is a new co-op that I am NOT running.
This co-op is amazing. You can get either a Conventional Produce Basket for $15(about $40-$50 worth) or an Organic Produce Basket for $25 (around $70-$80 worth)
They deliver every other Saturday at Spotted Leaf Park near Sahara and the 215. The pickup time is between 8:00-8:15am. Don't be late or they donate your basket!
