We are hosting Project Drawdown for a climate meetup at the store!

Reversing Global Warming: Introduction to Drawdown is a 90 minute in-person experience that invites you to see both the possibility of reversing global warming and that you have an important role to play in that process. Through videos and group activities, you will learn about a comprehensive plan to reverse global warming from Project Drawdown—a scientific study that identified 100 solutions that together, could actually reverse global warming by 2050. These solutions encompass the energy we use, the food we eat, and the cities we live in. By the end you will see the vital role you can play in the movement to reverse global warming.

What it offers:
-Learn about a comprehensive scientific study of 100 solutions that together, could actually reverse global warming by 2050
-Connect with people in your community to find inspiration and discover new possibilities for addressing global warming
-Learn how you can change the conversation about global warming from “game over” to “game on!”

It's happening this Thursday from 7pm-8:30pm at Eco Collective.

RSVP here!

Stay fresh for your holiday parties with these breath mints made from plants

Our new breath mints are made with whole plants and extracts, so you retain and benefit from their anti-microbial powers, not just their flavor. They are sweetened with xylitol, a sugar-free sweetener made from birch wood that's been shown to help prevent cavities with habitual consumption. Xylitol has a cooling sweetness with a comforting, neutral aftertaste. 

Best of all, this tasty innovation is home-grown! These mints are made locally in Tacoma, Washington, and are beautifully packaged in compostable paper tubes.

Cozy up with our Handmade 3-ply organic cotton throw blanket

 These blankets will make you want to cozy up and schedule important events like cuddling, TV watching, and getting a cat. They get softer over time and make a truly heirloom gift.

Not only does this super soft organic cotton blanket feel like what a parent bundles up a newborn baby in, it's also big enough for adults, comes in our favorite colors, and has cute lil hand embroidered stars on it. It's made of 3 layers of double weave muslin quilted together with love in India.

These blankets are made in partnership with non-profits and fair trade artisans in Dharmapuri, India, giving trafficked and abused women fair wages and dignified employment.

Glass bubble tea straw

Plastic straws are so light that they are prone to blowing out of trash cans and making their way into the ocean. Now you can enjoy that glass of boba tea without worrying about all the plastic that comes with it. Simply ask for your drink in a "for here" glass or bring your own, and pull out your very own reusable bubble tea straw.

This wider straw is also great for smoothies, shakes and floats and is a great thing to keep in your bag when you're on the go and looking for a sweet treat. It comes with an extra large cleaning brush and is also dishwasher safe.

This glass straw is handmade right here in Seattle with a tough borosilicate glass, and comes with a lifetime warranty from the manufacturer, so if it breaks, they'll replace it!
