Moving forward, here at Spruce, we are replacing Black Friday and Cyber Monday with GIVING BACK.
As we began planning for the holiday season at the shop this year, we were reminded of the need to give back and to rethink days like Black Friday and Cyber Monday. These events just simply do not align with our values as a small business. Slashing prices to increase sales - like larger corporations and big-box stores often do - isn't something you will see at Spruce. This just isn't possible for a small business, nor does it encourage mindful consumerism.
One of our commitments to change and growth in 2020 is to inspire our customers tosupport smallandgive backto the community. It is our hope to continue to cultivate a wise and thoughtful consumer, one who thinks about their purchases and makes well-reasoned choices with the planet and support of independent makers + artisans in mind.
Instead of offering discounts this weekend, we will be donating 10% of all store and web sales on Friday and Monday to The Duwamish Tribe(www.realrentduwamish.org) whose unceded, occupied land the city of Seattle, including our store, resides on.
Our website is ALWAYS OPEN and our in-store shopping hours for the coming weekend are as follows:
Recycling can be SO confusing. There is so much information and misinformation out there about what you can and cannot recycle. It varies state by state and there seems to be updates yearly. We hope this post helps clear up a few facts about recycling + how to recycle your Spruce Products and Packaging!
