About Us

We are the first and only eco-lifestyle retail store in Arkansas. The Green Corner Store sells environmentally friendly goods that are truly better for people, pets and the planet. We offer easy ways to be "greener" without sacrificing style, convenience or comfort.

The Green Corner Store carries the basic necessities for everyday living - plus fun items like gifts, toys, accessories, and more!
The products we offer are environmentally preferable to others on the market. They can take the place of disposables and reduce emissions. They are recyclable and/or made from recyclable materials, are compostable, organic and, whenever possible, sourced from local suppliers.
You are invited to come in, take some time and browse our store. It is reminiscent of an old-fashioned general store in the way it looks but, more importantly, in the personal, friendly service we provide.

Our Mission

To transform the way we live on our ‘corner' of the planet by showcasing eco-friendly goods and promoting healthy lifestyles and safer, greener environments at home, work and school.  We help to educate our employees, customers, vendors and the community about the economic, environmental and social benefits of sustainable practices and how to live lighter on the earth.

Core Principles

We believe that having healthier homes and work environments equates with a better quality of life for all.

We believe everyone should be able to enjoy the benefits of green living without sacrificing style, convenience, or comfort.

We believe in supporting a strong, local economy; most of our goods are made by local and regional companies.

We believe informed, conscientious consumers can transform the marketplace. Our products have been thoroughly researched and we do our best to source from socially responsible and environmentally responsible companies.

We believe in treating our customers, our vendors and our community ethically, and maintain a strong social environmental and economic responsibility to those we serve.

Since 2011, The Green Corner Store has been certified with Green America's Green Business Network. Approval is based on a rigorous application process and businesses must take the following pledge:  "As a member of the Green Business Network, my company conducts business according to standards that reach beyond contemporary practices in addressing the needs of consumers, employees, the community and the environment. I certify and can demonstrate that we strive to operate in a socially just and environmentally sustainable manner." ... Shelley Green, Owner

Sustainability practices

We are dedicated to protecting the environment, the health and safety of our employees, our customers, and the community in which we conduct our business.

We continually strive each day to improve our business operations and lessen our impact on the environment by conserving energy, water, and other natural resources; reducing waste generation; recycling and purchasing recycled products; and striving to eliminate the use of toxic products.

History

After researching and practicing a sustainable lifestyle, healthy living and safer alternatives for more than 15 years, Shelley Green (yes, our owner's last name is really Green!) opened The Green Corner Store in the summer of 2009 with a strong commitment to preserving and sustaining the environment. Green has a background in both retail and environmental education.

Our building

The Green Corner Store is located at the northeast corner of 15th and Main Streets, in the historic South Main District of downtown Little Rock, Arkansas.  We are inside the circa 1905 Lincoln Building built by C.J. Lincoln, a local drug wholesaler. It originally housed the C. H. Dawson drug store and soda fountain which operated for 60 years. After being vacant for a period of time, the building housed a car audio store and most recently a law firm. The Lincoln Building is now used by The Green Corner Store.  In 1996, the Lincoln building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
