Evergreen Collective opened in September 2022 as St. Paul's first refill shop not only for cleaning goods, but toiletries as well! And oh my, were y'all so excited to have this shop in town! Here are just a few ways that together we made an impact in the last four months of 2022.
1. 3,366 of paper towels were saved through the purchase of Swedish Dishcloths (each cloths replaces up to 17 rolls of paper towels!)
2. 82 plastic bottles of shampoo and conditioner were saved through the purchase of plastic free shampoo and conditioner bars!
3. We shipped 100% of packages out in reused packing materials/boxes.
4. Over 1,000 shopping bags were diverted from the landfill because y'all brought goodies home with no or reused bags.
Thank you all so much for helping to create this REAL IMPACT in the world. I know it's a bit cliche, but ultimately it true, all of us together making small imperfect changes does add up. And voting with your dollar ensures that in the long run businesses that live up to your values will ultimately survive. Together we are doing something really cool in this world. Thank you so much for being here, I can't wait to see the impact we can make in 2023!
