The Green Wagon

On the corner of 11th and Forrest. Nashville’s First Green General Store. The Green Wagon houses a classic collection of general store merchandise, with everything from cleaning supplies to clothing to shampoo to crib mattresses. The store features a “refilling station” where customers can refill their bottles with certain products at a discounted price, instead of buying new containers. A large portion of the products in The Green Wagon inventory are made locally, therefore reducing the business’ and customers’ carbon footprint that would normally occur during the shipping process. Since the notion of “green” is relatively new and somewhat undefined, Jen uses a standardized assessment that will evaluate products based on their environmental footprint across the product’s lifecycle stages. This standard purchasing process will give The Green Wagon customers peace of mind and allow them the freedom to walk in and feel confident about any item they purchase. The Green Wagon hopes that defining its standards of “green” will simplify and enhance the shopping experience for customers. More info at Green Wagon Nashville.
