Clean Sweep At Granville Island

September 30, 2020

This summer, Granville Island Broom Co. marked 10 years of making fine handcrafted brooms in Vancouver. To celebrate this milestone, artisans Mary and Sarah Schwieger announced that they’ve joined 1% for the Planet and, from now on, have pledged to donate one per cent of their revenues toward environmental causes.

“We have been through a lot in 10 years, and it has given us time to reflect on the past decade and how we wish to move forward,” says Mary. Sarah adds, “[This pledge] reflects our continued desire to prioritize sustainability and take on more responsibility for the environment.”

Though the COVID-19 pandemic has been hard on small businesses like Granville Island Broom Co., this is a good reminder about the importance of supporting local and the impact of positive actions. —Vita Daily
