03 Feb Mighty Market: Small Steps Lead to Mighty Changes!
There’s a small shop making a big difference in Martinez. Two sisters opened their bulk refill apothecary + low-waste shop last April—just in time for Covid-19. This store is filled with an amazing array of organic, earth-friendly items that the owners have carefully curated.
Bring your own containers and buy in bulk
An important part of the Mighty Market ethos is buying in bulk—which translates to less waste and fewer containers discarded into landfills. Take your own containers or buy them at the Market. At the filling station, you’ll find household cleaners and a wide selection of soothing lotions and cleansers for face and body. You’ll be charged by the ounce.
A wide variety of soaps, lotions, moisturizers and cleansers
There’s an emphasis on high quality, reusable products made with natural ingredients—including product containers. Look for:
- Esoteric brushes for your drinking straws
- A collapsible water bottle for travel
- Sets of bamboo utensils—stop throwing away plastic utensils
- Conditioner for cast-iron cookware
- Soap for washing your dog
- Grooming products for men, including beard oils that cleanse and moisturize
- Tooth tabs for when you want to brush but don’t have water
Each of us can play a role in conserving our resources
Scientists trace the escalation of extreme weather conditions to rising temperatures. The catastrophic fire season that seems to last longer each year, extended hurricane seasons and flooding across the Midwest. Each of us can play a role in conserving resources by reducing our own carbon footprints. Mighty Market’s commitment to earth-friendly products makes it easy to live more sustainably.
Mighty Market, located at 739 Ferry Street in Martinez, is owned by Claire Martinez and Bronwyn Kopcek. They’re working moms, and many of their suppliers are women. They offer nationwide shipping and curbside pickup. Something else you’re going to like—they have a rewards program that’s an incentive to keep going back.
This is the season for taking charge and making commitments
Buying in bulk and supporting local businesses are good places to start. Many of our clients are also scheduling appointments to create Living Trusts. Covid-19 is still very much a reality, and a Trust, with a Power of Attorney and Advance Healthcare Directive are providing peace of mind to many. Best of all, we guide you through it and we prepare the legal documents. Schedule an appointment with Guideway today.
