Zero is a community driven sustainability hub. It provides a sustainable source of foods and products to people in urban environments which is often lacking. By bringing in local farmers and vendors, its boosts local green economy. It has an innovative atmosphere it its sustainable sourcing of materials and regenerative design. 

The vendor layout in zero was based on research by Notre Dame College, which collected data on a multitude of supermarkets. The results showed that produce and flowers were kept towards the front in order to convey a fresh feel. Packaged goods and miscellaneous items were kept in the middle rows and anything refrigerated, such as meat and dairy, are kept towards the back.
