Verde is an environmental general store offering earth-friendly alternatives for your consumption needs. We are built on the principles of environmental, economic and social responsibility: principles that link the needs of our customers to the needs of future generations.
Verde is operated by a mother-daughter team, Laurie and Sarah. Laurie has 30 years of life and business experience and her Master's Degree research focused on Small Business and Social Responsibility. Sarah came to Verde with a Degree in Global Development Studies and 6 years of sales experience.
Laurie and Sarah are committed to creating a shopping experience where what you are purchasing is environmentally sustainable, meet fair trade standards and does the least amount of environmental and social harm.
Making environmentally responsible choices can often be overwhelming. We work hard to make it easier. Our customers can be assured that before a product goes on Verde's shelves the items have been scrutinized from who is producing them, the workplace and wage conditions of those who made the items, and the quality of the materials used in making the item. We make every effort to ensure our suppliers meet the highest standards of business practice. We try to buy locally before we buy regionally and regionally before we buy nationally and internationally.
