Meet Our Partners: Generation Green

We have partnered with some of Winnipeg’s best local joints for our Shop Local, Earn Credit campaign…and we want you to meet them!

Meet Sherry Sobey, owner of Generation Green, located at The Forks Market:

Tell us about your philosophy at Generation Green.logo-for-generation-green1

Sherry: We genuinely care about people, we care about health, and we care about our individual and collective impact on this world, and the world we are creating for our children. We want to be known as a place that can be trusted to offer products that take all of that into consideration.

Why go Green?

Sherry: Going green in this generation does not mean making big sacrifices! There are so many fabulous products to choose from that perform better than conventional ones, with the bonus of never having to compromise your health. Our health should be our most important priority and that is the primary reason we say become part of a green generation! The other important reason in choosing these alternatives to conventional ones is that until we all make a strong enough statement, there is no reason for large corporations to commit to make changes.  Every time you make a purchase, you are voting for that product to stay on the market. We source products that are affordable, support small manufacturers that have created products ethically that focus on developing a quality-based product that won’t affect our health negatively.

Generation Green offers workshops as well?DSC_0578

Sherry: We offer one workshop a month, and encourage our customers to tell us what they want to know more about.  It’s basically about creating a community that learns from each other, we all have knowledge to share! You can always find out when we are having workshops or even sampling dates on our calendar of events, which can be accessed through our website or blog.

And finally…why is shopping locally in Winnipeg important?

Sherry: Shopping local in Winnipeg is important not only for environmental sustainability, but also for economical purposes. Supporting the communities we live in helps them to continually grow and develop. That’s why at Generation Green we also source our products locally first, then throughout Canada.
