My favorite place to shop on a rainy day. So much colorful, uplifting eco-friendly goodies. Thanks Twig!
I had never been nor seen this store before so i was intrigued… Walked in and was blown away at all of the wonderful gifts and eco friendly whatnots… Ended up getting a couple of glass Lifefactory waterbottles for friends as gifts… The woman at the checkout was amazing and very sweet…she asked if it was a gift and she wrapped it up in a cool bag with tissue paper for free…AMAZING
I’ve been shopping at the TWIG since 2009. Every time I think I have all I need, I wander back into the store only to find more sustainable items that I should be using. I shop for my grandchildren there and they are thrilled with the gifts. The customer service is exemplary. So I feel great about shopping and doing some small part in saving the planet… or at least not destroying it.
This is a really cool store for the eco/enviro mind set. It’s a neat concept and a pretty decent location for us (walking/biking). They carry lots of stuff running the gamut from recycled to sustainable, organic items such as bamboo utensils, stainless steel thermos mugs, cards and stationary (recycled or seed plantable ones), as well as items for composting, etc. They also have a small selection of clothing and baby toys (wood-based, etc). They also have some more unique items like recycled drinking glasses made from soda pop bottles. I bought a few of those for my sister this past Xmas and she liked them. Since I’m a bit of scavenger of sorts, this store was a nice find for me – eclectic yet refined. They don’t have the “cool” factor of stores like Nested in Carrboro…but they have some neat stuff to find. More so if you’re willing to rummage – they also seem to have a few items on sale…so it’s worth looking into. I don’t find them terribly busy – so I hope they’re fairing well in the economy. If anything, go green and support your local business – start by shopping here if you can!
I was really impressed with Twig’s inventory. (Finally a place in town to buy Klean Kanteen water bottles!) Staff is friendly and helpful– great selection of eco-friendly items. Store is located a couple of doors down from Whole Foods. Definitely worth checking out.
Really cool store with good prices. I got some carved earrings here that are very unique. Next visit I want to get a bento box to replace my current lunchbox situation. Staff are very friendly and helpful.
I was curious and wandered into this store after shopping at WholeFoods the other day and to my delight I walked out with two really cool recycled plastic mats for my house…and they were on sale! Twig is a little treasure of a store where you can find nifty, eco-friendly novelties or really sturdy, durable and eco-friendly household items (like recycled plastic decorative mats), as well as organic baby clothes and toxin-free toys. I highly recommend checking Twig out for fun and unique, earth-friendly gifts for the holidays!
Everyone’s going green these days, and now you can too. Twig offers sundry household items that are eco-friendly (local/organic/sustainable/fair-trade/by-products/and/or/not-tested-on-beast-or-brute). Stock up on bamboo bowls or non-toxic toys and pet products. They even have a whole line of clothing (organic cotton, hemp, soy) for adults and kids — though the clothes are a little granola for my taste, it’s all presented in a very appealing, browse-friendly way. And it’s great to see a store promoting environmental consciousness!
I don’t normally go for eco-freak stores (green stores, whatever), but this is just fantastic. I have never seen a store that takes eco-friendly measures to such creative extremes. They actually have pads of paper that are made entirely out of elephant poo (their words, not mine). I mean, I enjoy destroying the environment as much as the next guy, but products made of elephant excrement are just excellent. They dye their clothes with clay, too, which is pretty neat. On the subject of the clothes: These are great. Their sense of style is very understated, but all the items are attractive, well-priced, and feel great. The staff is incredibly friendly and knowledgeable about what’s going on… You get the feeling that they’re really happy to be working there and spreading the message. I’d love to see more of this place.
I truly enjoy shopping in your store. It is refreshing to encounter a retailer dedicated to green initiatives, while providing fun and interesting products. Keep up the good work!
