Our Clients in Environment

Earth’s General Store

Looking for compost worms? Or a way to lessen your environmental footprint through a new source of protein – say edible crickets, perhaps? A way to consume less of the world’s resources through your daily consumption habits? Or maybe you’d just like some excellent tasty food for lunch or to pick up on the way home for dinner. Then Earth’s General Store is for you.

Since 1991, Earth’s General Store has been the go-to place in Edmonton to find the tools and knowledge to live a greener, more sustainable life , and how to consume less, more wisely, fairly and locally. The stores carry supplies for all aspects of your life, and in recent years have expanded to carry a wide array of food products, including fresh, packaged and frozen food products.

SEF provided financing to Earth’s General Store to open a new outlet in the heart of Edmonton, bringing their experience in making the world a better place for the city’s downtown residents and office tower occupants every day.
