Earth Mart - An Environmental Department Store
Opening in April 2007, Earth Mart was co-founded by Alison Durinzi, Cathy Sorman and Lisa Longo. The store's premise came from many conversations about how difficult it was to find the environmentally friendly products that they wanted to have in their homes. In addition, all three have children and have a deep concern about child labor and the unfair labor practices being used to manufacture many of the products for sale at other stores. A wide range of products will be available, including flooring, cabinets, sinks, counters, flue-less fire places, paint, stain, solar attic fans, dinnerware, glassware, kitchen utensils and textiles, clothing, bedding, bath, hand bags, beauty products, toys, school supplies, office supplies, CFL bulbs, pet products, household cleaning products, and healthy foods to-go. Earth Mart is located in historic Phoenixville, Pennsylvania at 235 Bridge Street. The store features the artistic and innovative creations of Iola Design (covered by TH here), with bamboo wall shelving, and of Littlewood Biddison Arts (LBA table top, pictured), with a reclaimed tree sculpture.
