Yep, and we always have been, even before it became a huge “Buzz Word”.
Besides the fact that over 90% of our items are made by Local Artisans, which reduces our “Carbon Footprint” from long distance shipping, it also contributes to our (here comes another buzz word) Local Economy. When you purchase one of our artisan pieces, be it Hand Thrown Pottery by Karin Seelen from Palmerston,
or a stunning piece of jewelry by one of our many jewelry artisans, your money stays local.
Another way that we have always been GREEN is our own line of Candles & Bath & Body Products
Our Candles are exclusively made with 100% Soy Wax, a renewable resource that is made from soy beans to keep our farmers happy and it doesn’t contribute to the big oil companies ever expanding profits.
Not only are our Soy Wax Candles Green but they are a healthier choice over traditional paraffin candles. Soy wax burns cooler, longer, and has a better hot and cold scent throw with 95% less soot!
Our Soaps are made with all vegetable based skin loving oils such as Coconut oil, Shea Butter and Palm oil. For face and body, your skin will feel soft and smooth, not tight and dry.
Our soaps DO NOT contain Parabens, Petro-Chemicals, Sodium Lauryl Sulphate (SLS) or Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate (SLSE).
Our latest step in being GREEN is our new hand made recycled newspaper bags to take your purchases home in, and you can reuse it as a Gift Bag!!
Made from our local newspapers, these bags are a unique way to recycle, reduce and reuse!
So, there you have it Sherry’s on Main is Green. Bet you didn’t know that!!!
