We are so excited!

We're Moving!

Dear Friend,

Our community has been a huge part of the growth at EcoWorks and because of the need to expand what we offer, WE’RE MOVING our location to accommodate our growth. We will close Sunday, July 8, 2018 at 4:00 p.m. to begin the moving process and will re-open at 89 State Street in North Haven this Fall.
 
We are so excited for this new adventure and we hope you are too! You and I share important values – we both want a more beautiful, healthy, creative world. We also both know that a more beautiful world is not going to happen by chance. I’m writing to ask for your investment in something that will help us both live our values.
 
Last week I saw a business empty a perfectly good case of copy paper from 1985 into the trash! There are teachers without supplies they need. Students without art classes. There are artists struggling to create a living when perfectly good supplies are getting thrown in a dumpster!
 
You can imagine the joy they feel knowing at EcoWorks, they’ve got access to quality art supplies that otherwise would have gone to an incinerator, never to be heard from again. Here’s a quote from someone who came in the store recently – “EcoWorks is a great store which rescues art supplies and makes them available for crafters, makers, artists, and even environmental magicians. All good...and at great prices...and with nice people!”

I’m writing to ask you to help EcoWorks, a place I’ve devoted my time to because I believe we’re in the business of making an impact on the world. I’ll give you some important background about EcoWorks. Now in existence for over 5 years, we continue to offer low-cost art supplies (scrap/surplus) to artists, teachers and other creatives. We continue to take items that may have otherwise ended up in the trash and strive to have these items reused in a sustainable way as to not contribute to the waste stream.
 
You have an opportunity today to invest in our growth. To engage our volunteers and to be open more hours and to save more valuable stuff from being trashed - we need your help. We earn money selling scrap and providing workshops but unfortunately that is not enough to sustain us as we grow – we need your support.
 
Your generosity will make a difference in our community by allowing us to continue in our work and make this transition to an expanded space easier on our dedicated volunteers and help us continue to grow in our new location. 
 
Your thoughtfulness is greatly appreciated, and we are grateful for your support. Please consider making a donation online here or by mailing a check made payable to EcoWorks, Inc. 
 
 
Sincerely,



Eric Ginnish, Board Co-Chair

PS -  You can have a more beautiful world right away when you give today to EcoWorks. Come by the store if you need convincing – we think you’ll love what’s happening. And, we’re the kind of people who, when you give us two pennies, we can rub them together and create a nickel – we make sure your donation and every donation counts. Thanks for considering what you can do!
