Toronto, Ontario 1994 a new environmentally friendly store opens its doors offering consumers sustainable and environmentally low impact products to the marketplace. Now, over ten years later, www.grassrootsstore.com has taken their store online. Their online store separates their products into smaller categories from Bed & Bath, Home Decor, Solar and Alternative Energy, to Cleaning Products. All of the items in the store have been screened to meet or exceed their environmental standards including fair trade, fair labor, and human rights. GrassRootsStore.com also offer carbon neutral shipping through Zerofootprint.net and also pack their products in reusable packing material from their suppliers or uses recyclable materials. Every month Grass Roots also showcases environmentally related art from local artists as well as organizes unique workshops that focus on environmental sustainability.
Also, be sure to take some time out on the last Friday of every month as Grass Roots donates 10% of their net sales to local or national environmental organizations as part of their “Feel Good Fridays”. Shopping AND supporting the environment? What more can a girl ask for?
