In addition to curating products that help our customers and community reduce waste, we are a low-waste-output business ourselves. We are constantly dreaming up ways to reduce waste in our community, from processing our own compost in our backyard garden, to using recycled/upcycled materials for packaging and shipping, to newly offering zero-waste circular delivery to all of Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens. We also offer vintage items and clothing sourced by local women-owned curators to excite our community about secondhand, and we partner with Scrap NYC to collect clothing donations at our store. We've diverted thousands of pounds of textile waste from landfill at our in-store drop-off spot! Climate and community are huge to us in everything we do, and we are so proud to be a center of environmental action and education in Queens.
Earth & Me
Earth & Me is a zero-waste store and refillery located in Astoria, Queens. We offer a selection of handmade, natural products for personal care, gifts, cleaning, home and more, many of which are made locally and/or organically. Our refill station has helped divert tens of thousands of plastic bottles from landfill since our launch in early 2021. We also have a community garden in the back where we host events from local artists, makers, herbalists, organizers and more. We're woman-owned and proud to be advocates of sustainability and environmental justice in Queens.
