Earth Centre

 

The Earth Centre is an AMS club that receives its funding primarily through student opt-out fees with the occasional grant. We are a non-profit store composed of an eight person managerial team responsible for store operations, education, volunteers, and marketing. Along with a group of dedicated volunteers who oversee store transactions and customer service, The Earth Centre grants the Queen’s community convenient access to inexpensive environmentally-friendly products and information through its expanding library. The Earth Centre offers Queen’s students, faculty and community members an opportunity to transform their environmental concern into positive action through green consumerism and innovative discussion. The Earth Centre encourages students to engage in positive dialogue about the environment through exposure to new information and opinions on environmental topics. The products The Earth Centre carries offer a more sustainable, responsible alternative to students’ consumer needs. While the best consumerism is always non-consumerism, The Earth Centre offers a more realistic alternative by selling necessary products that were made with an environmental mind frame and have lower impacts on the environment than many store-brand products. We are located just down the hall from P&CC in JDUC Room 033.
