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.

Join Big Green Earth Store, Whole Foods, Sun & Earth, Grid Magazine and a
host of other local “green” businesses and nonprofit organizations as we celebrate
EARTH SaturDAY on April 25, 2009.

The Block Party will be between 9th and 10th Streets on South Street from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and will feature giveaways, live music from local musicians, and free face painting for the kids!

Bring your own bottles (laundry detergent, hand soap, dishwashing liquid) to refill with Sun & Earth.

Love your blog, Annie. I also enjoyed reading about I can put the face to the wonderful man who also helps animals in need! Kudos to both of you!

Tony needs to meet Elizabeth Roche from Mixed Greens. Go here -

Elizabeth is from North Wilmington and she's the Queen of Reuse, Reduce, Recycle!

Glad to see Miss Beth featured too - when's Hypo Tea anyway?

Annie said...

Thanks, Chris and Christa!
I will convey your messages to Tony. He certainly will appreciate them, I'm sure!
Christa, I'll be sending a formal email invitation out for the Hypno-Tea. It's scheduled for Sunday, June 7 at 2:00 PM at Jayla's house. I hope you can still make it now that we have all the details worked out!
XO's to both of you!
