The latest around Eco Collective
This is no time to quiet down. In what is hopefully becoming the most pivotal time in American history since the 1960’s, so many of us are experiencing a long overdue shift in the work we do, the conversations we have, and the things we are advocating for. Becoming anti racist is a lifelong practice. To that end, we put together a blog post thinking about longevity and avoiding burnout in the Black Lives Matter movement. We are attentively listening to black leaders in the environmental movement and listening to those who have been fighting for justice for their whole lives; one of our key takeaways has been finding ways to avoid burnout so we can keep the movement strong. Reflection, creating a coping bank, staying plugged in to groups... the list goes on. Check out our latest blog to read more of our thoughts and the things we’re learning.
We are now offering patio pickups!
Exciting news, friends! We are now offering patio pickups at our Ballard store on Monday's, Wednesday's, and Friday's. Simply order online, choose in-store pickup at checkout, and your order will be ready on the next available pickup day (we need at least 24 hours to prepare your orders). We've heard from so many of you wanting to pick up household essentials and items from our Bulk Bar, so we're excited to finally have no-contact pickups set up.
When you arrive at our store, you'll see the blue x's on the ground. We ask that you knock on the door, step back 6 feet to the first available blue x, and a store associate will come out to ask your order number. They'll place your order on the wine barrel just outside the door. Once they've gone back inside, you can pick up your zero waste goodies and be on your way!
Thank you for supporting us and being so patient as we find new ways to serve you during the pandemic. Come on by, we can't wait to see you!
PS - you can still order online or for local delivery! We can deliver anywhere in Seattle city limits, on Monday's and Thursday's, and there's a same-day delivery cut off time of 8am.
We have all kinds of zero waste essentials like deodorant, toothpaste tablets, and hand sanitizer so you can stay home and stay healthy. Besides, now is a great time to try a new shampoo bar or deodorant, with all the extra time at home! Check out our wellness and beauty section for everything you might need. We even have refillable floss and soap saver bags back in stock.
Kids gummy vitamins
Our new gummy vitamins sold out so fast, but we still have kids' gummy multivitamins and immunity supplements! They are delicious, fun to take, and vegan and sugar-free just like our adult vitamins. Our gummy vitamins are also verified non-GMO and we ship them in compostable packets! We wanted to find something you could feel good about your kids taking, and to offer some extra health and wellness in these unusual times.
More fun news coming soon!
We have been working hard to make our bulk items available to customers who don't live nearby, and will have some exciting news very soon.
