Tread lightly. Earth's General Store encourages individuals to make a smaller ecological imprint on our planet. To "save the world one customer at a time," the store offers environmentally friendly products to help everyone reduce their impact. Open since 1991, their commitment to researching their products makes them a forerunner in the green movement.
Items such as reusable cloth diapers, compost worms, recycled non-bleached bulk paper and non-chlorinated toilet paper are just some products you can use to reduce your impact. Earth's General Store also sells bulk household cleansers and personal care products. All you have to do is bring in your own containers to fill. The shop also carries water and energy savers like toilet dams, light bulbs and feminine care products such as unbleached cotton tampons, reusable pads and The Keeper.
The Good Stuff
Besides all that, the store sells fair-trade organic coffee and offers a wide variety of "alternative" magazines like the Utne Reader and Adbusters. Earth's General Store is also an environmental resource centre where educational material can be found for those who want to help save the environment. Here you can find everything from ‘green’ lip balm to minty fresh toothpaste without any of the harsh chemicals. Do yourself and the environment a favour and shop locally.
