I live in a two-person household. I realized we were producing too much waste when we could easily fill two recycling bins, and a garbage bin every week or two. I actively began searching for low waste solutions to the products that I purchased regularly (namely household and groceries). Sourcing low waste essentials locally was more challenging than I anticipated. Recognizing a need, and after many months of research and hard work, Earth Market was born.
I come from an education background, and grew up working on farms. I understand there is a disconnect between local producers and the consumer. I want to help bridge that gap while diminishing the amount of waste we produce. Keeping the planet healthy for future generations is a priority.
