SAVE GREEN AND BE GREEN
Green products are typically associated with being pricey, but in many cases theyâ€™re cheaper than their conventional counterparts in the long-run. Whether itâ€™s from using less water through use of a low-flow showerhead, or cutting back on energy consumption through solar-powered devices, the green products sold at Sustain Stores can help customers save money, and while theyâ€™re at it, the environment.
Shoppers at www.sustainstores.com will find eco-friendly products for every facet of their life, in Kitchen & Bath, Home & Garden, Personal & Health, Baby & Kids and Energy & Water categories. But Sustain is more than an online store, itâ€™s also a place to learn about the benefits of living sustainably.
Sustain co-creators, brothers Tim and Mark Appleberry, know that some companies falsely claim to be eco-friendly, so theyâ€™ve decided to independently verify all claims before selling a product. Once Sustain has verified a companyâ€™s claim, one or more of the icons below will be posted on that productâ€™s page:
â€œOur number one goal is to supply customers with the information and tools necessary to make sustainable choices and purchases,â€ said Sustain CEO Mark Appleberry. â€œThe last thing weâ€™d want is a customer to make a purchase and then find out the company had lied about their eco-friendliness. By independently verifying claims, customers can make purchases with confidenceâ€
