Best Sustainable Business: Plant Shop Evanston

Cleo Kanter, Reporter

Amid the Chicago winter, it’s fair to say that sunlight is lacking, which raises quite an issue if you want to grow your own garden. For all of the nature lovers who aspire to bring the outdoors inside, Plant Shop Evanston is the place to go. 

Plant Shop Evanston has a variety of options in its store, ranging from succulents, cacti and flowers to all-purpose liquid, maxi foliar and African violet fertilizers. While it has prepackaged bowls and pots available for purchase, customers are also welcome to bring their own vessels. What could be a more sustainable way to upcycle a finished candle jar or unused mug? 

Sustainability is an essential part of Plant Shop Evanston’s business. With a wide selection of reusable pots and jars, as well as a plethora of plant options, the store sheds light on ways to converge environmental responsibility and natural beauty. 

Plant Shop Evanston is open 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekdays and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekends.
