Plants > Plastic

In Gastown, we love the planet we occupy. And if we had the option to live on this Earth forever, this is the place that we would like to be.

From organic, fair trade food and beverages, to consigned, vintage, small batch, and slow fashion, plant shops, hyper-local shops, and b-corp businesses, here is how you can join us in making planet Earth number one this Earth Day (and every day). Besides, this planet is pretty damn fantastic.

Freshen up your home with some clean air! Not only do indoor plants enhance the overall appearance of a space, but they’ve been shown to boost moods, increase creativity, reduce stress, and eliminate air pollutants—making for a healthier, happier you.
