      Our Story

      In the fall of 1993, we opened The Green Store in a 100 year-old brick building on Main Street in Belfast, Maine. With a nod to the village general stores of the past and a mission to promote personal and planetary well-being, we set out to provide simple, practical products to help people live an environmentally sustainable lifestyle.

      More than 21 years since our founding, customers from Maine and beyond are beating a path to our door to shop in person or online. Many of them have been with us for years because they rely on the Green Store for earth-friendly products from our down to earth staff. Our motto here is "we won't sell it if we don't use it ourselves". Thus, if you have any questions about any product we carry, we're here to lend a hand.

      Give us a call at (207) 338-4045 Monday thru Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. EST or Sunday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. EST or send us an e-mail at

    Visit the Green Store

    Each year, we’re thrilled to be visited by a growing legion of repeat customers who say, “There really is nothing like the Green Store experience“. Our store is located in a century old brick building in the picturesque coastal town of Belfast, Maine. Our ceilings are tin, our floors are original wood, and our character is unique! The salespeople are friendly and knowledgeable, and there is plenty to see and explore in our store, as well as in town after you leave!

    Belfast is a wonderful, progressive community, with a vibrant downtown that is home to many interesting shops, a food coop, great restaurants, art and antique galleries, a summer farmer’s market, a city park and playground, and more! We are just North of Camden and South of Bar Harbor on Route 1, or due East of Augusta on Route 3.
