MY Superhero at Big Green Earth Store

I've learned that I cannot discriminate here...
So I have a new friend, named Tony. OK - he's clearly NOT a "woman"...but he's amazing and fabulous, so he's allowed in the club...
Tony is remarkable for soooo many reasons.  Just look at him. There are the adorable little dogs he has, the adorableness of his personality, the kindness in his demeanor, he's a cutie-patootie, adorable, adorable, fabulous, wonderful, amazing....yadda, yadda, yadda....
BUT. The most wonderful and remarkable thing about my friend, Tony, is that he had this fabulous little idea. His idea was to take a retail shop, use it to sell only eco-friendly products, and call it "Big Green Earth Store". Great idea, right?!
BUT. Tony took it one step farther. He decided to collect recycleable goods inside his shop, to make things a bit easier for his customers and the locals, who really appreciate it, right...??
BUT, gets better. He took it even one step farther. He collects stuff that some people don't even realize we can recycle, like bottle caps....who knew...??
BUT. It gets even better...
Tony took the time and invested the funds to develop a way-cool refilling station for his customers. You can actually REFILL "Sun & Earth" products at Big Green Earth Store, and receive a discounted price for your committment to the environment by doing so. WOW.
Get a load of all of these fabulous "buts"! ...go to or visit the store and the Liberty Bell all in the same day!
Big Green Earth Store is located at 934 South St. in Philadelphia.
