Protecting The Seas
Being conscious of the pollution that we create everyday that may end up in our Precious Seas, and how we can take steps to prevent this by using sustainable and recyclable products in our homes.
Doing it for Future Generations
Focusing on the "why" we do things to create a better world for those that have to take care of this earth after we depart, is a priority.
Don't Hide from what you deserve
Plant or Nature Based Products are not always viewed by everyone as beneficial and without education it can get lost in the noise. Too many chemicals can't be good for our bodies, no matter what some may say. Sometimes you have to make that change yourself and give your body a healthy alternative for your lotions, soaps, gels or any other personal product. We do not sell any vitamins, enhancements or diet products as we leave that to the experts. We have chosen basic everyday products that need to be natural and made in the U.S.A. to start eliminating chemicals. Make the change that you deserve!
Making it All Count
We are a fun-loving married couple who have always viewed the world with an open heart but we didn't like what we saw when it came to our environment. We are taking small steps ourselves to have a better impact with local recycling, shopping our local produce and meat markets, using a backyard composting bin (provided by our city, by the way, how cool is that) and using sustainable products as much as we can. We are working towards our goal of building a home in the near future that will be able to sustain itself with solar-power, tank-less water heaters and as many energy efficient appliances as possible, all on some land to able to grow a small farm to be as sustainable as possible.
Now, let's clarify, we are not "old hippies" or "Millennials," we are from two generations that believed people should pay attention to how they affect the earth. We want to see a better world and by starting this company we are working towards our goal to help, "Change Your World with Small Steps." We share this planet with many creatures so our "Why" is important to us.
Our Very Own Department Store Online!
We both grew up in eras where Retail Stores were adapting to what the consumers demanded, and one of those innovations was the Larger Department Store, such as Montgomery Ward, Sears and JC Penney. The primary benefit of this type of retail store is the ability to sell many products all in one place, where they are separated by departments. Fast forward to today's technology, the modern day department store is Amazon, EBay, Etsy and so many more. So, when we were designing our Online Store, we wanted to offer our take on the online department store focusing on two areas, our homes and our personal health, as these are the largest foundations of our being.
So it was born, our two "departments," the Home Shoppe and the Body Shoppe. You may ask, "Why did you choose the shoppe spelling?" The dictionary describes this spelling as: "a deliberately archaic spelling of shop, used in the hopes of imbuing a store with old-fashioned charm or quaintness." This definition is what we hope to embody in our online store. A charm or quaintness that is developed by a family owned business that if focused on making our world a better place.
An Introduction to our Shoppes
Starting with our Home Shoppe; even though we all view our homes as being a shelter for our families, we also recognize that it has the largest impact on the world we live in. For our Shoppe, we start by hand-selecting products from the U.S.A. that have one focus, that they are sustainable, made from recycled products or recyclable. They must be kind to our world and future. We offer products that build a healthy home for all and will expand our offerings often.
Next we have our Body Shoppe, where we have chosen to focus on products that are Plant-Based and innovative to enhance our well-being. These are products that are going to have less chemicals and strive to use only natural products. We truly believe in these products and invite you to explore these for yourself and your loved ones. We think that everyone deserves to have better alternatives for their personal care products.
Each product that we offer in our shoppes are hand-picked due to it's ability to change lives. We hope to bring this change to you!
Thank you for learning more about our "Why."
