It’s Time to Celebrate!
The Green Corner Store is celebrating their 3rd Anniversary Saturday, July 7th from 12 -4 p.m. Customers can enjoy samples of ice cream cake and iced coffee floats made by Loblolly Creamery. There will be special prices on selected merchandise throughout the store, live music and door prizes. The store is dedicated to help educate and promote greener lifestyles by offering quality, healthy, safe and eco-friendly products for every day living.
Some of the door prizes include a bag of Mountain Black Café coffee beans, a French roast from Mountain Bird Coffee Company, a starter kit of green home cleaning products from Better Life, and personal care items from Tigre Mountain Soap. More details will be posted on the store’s Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/thegreencornerstore.
This past year has been a memorable one for the eco friendly store. In addition to expanding its selection of organic, local, and sustainable products, the store opened a soda fountain in the spring. It exclusively serves Loblolly Creamery artisan ice cream, hand-crafted beverages, and seasonal confections made with local and organic ingredients without the use of any premixes, preservatives or artificial stabilizers.
The locally owned store also received the Small Business Award from the Sustainable Business Network of Central Arkansas acknowledging its commitment to sustainable business practices and its pledge to do more in the future. Owner, Shelley Green, was named an Eco Hero and featured in the Arkansas Business’ 2012 Green Guide. “I wanted to showcase the array of green products available for people to easily make more eco-conscious choices,” says Green.
During the anniversary festivities, The Green Corner Store will unveil a poster design commemorating the anniversary. It will be a declaration of the store’s mission, beliefs and actions towards sustainability, building community and supporting local. Those who wish can sign the original design to signal their shared agreement for and support of the store’s efforts. It will be displayed in the store as a way to increase awareness for the store’s mission. A limited number of copies will be available for a small donation. Proceeds will benefit the Dunbar Garden Project*.
The Green Corner Store is located at 1423 Main Street, Little Rock. For directions, store hours or more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 501.374.1111.

*Part of the store’s community outreach involves selecting a local charity each month for a donation. The soda fountain co-creates a special ice cream flavor with the charity. Proceeds from the sale go to the charity. The first two weeks of the month, customers are encouraged to help, too, by rounding up their change from a purchase. The Dunbar Garden is the chosen charity for the month of July. The Dunbar Garden is a two-acre, outdoor classroom at 18th & Chester serving students from Gibbs International Magnet Elementary School and the Dunbar Magnet Middle School. www.dunbargarden.org
