About us:

Grassroots offers environmentally-friendly products that allow people to live a conscious, healthy life conducting a green lifestyle. Grassroots has been operating in Toronto since 1994, making it one of the pioneers of spreading the word about eco-friendly products. With two stores and an online store (www.grassrootsstore.com), Grassroots is a great place to go for all your household needs, organic bedding and baby accessories, clothing, toys, gardening and much more.

At the Riverdale location (372 Danforth Ave) you can also buy natural cleaning products in bulk, saving you a lot of money and saving the environment from harsh chemicals. If you feel like it, you can also just drop by for some information or a chat on environmental and community issues. Behind every product sold at Grassroots is a story. Not only are these stories about products and the environment, but they are stories about small, eco-friendly companies proudly supported by Grassroots.

Because we live in an age where "green washing" is epidemic (green washing is when anyone can claim to make an environmental product), Grassroots carefully sources and investigates products that meet or exceed our environmental standards, respecting and observing fair trade, fair labour, and human rights practices.

Grassroots walks the talk by operating it's business in a sustainable way. Both Grassroots stores are bullfrogpowered (100% green electricity retailer in Ontario that sources electricity exclusively from wind and low-impact water power producers). Online shopping just got more eco-friendly! Grassroots offsets the carbon emissions for all our deliveries and for all of their online shipments, they either reuse packing materials from suppliers or use recyclable/biodegradable materials.

The company has won numerous awards, just to name a few: Best Eco-Store in Canada by Today's Parent magazine, Green Toronto Award of Excellence, Environmental Business of the Year Award, Bicycle Friendly Business Award (multiple winner) and so on. Grassroots is committed to building a community and providing storefront exposure for key conservation issues and to help increase public understanding and interest. They organize in-store workshops and book signings, showcase local artists and nurture partnerships with environmental organizations such as Evergreen Foundation, Windshare Co-Op, and David Suzuki Foundation.
