Save Some Green Store In Center City Celebrates It’s First Anniversary

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Today marks a year of life for a little sprout of a store, a beacon of green amid brick and concrete.

An open house on Sunday marks the first anniversary for Save Some Green, on Chestnut Street just past 20th. It offers a bewildering array of products other than food in a small space.

For proprietor Judah Press (photo), this is a calling, “I gave up a regular, great business job in New York to go green, and I have a Master’s in Environmental Studies from Penn and we’re serious about it and we think it’s very practical for Philadelphians to be better with the environment, themselves and the community.”

Save Some Green also has internet stores on eBay and Amazon, so why the physical one? Two reasons, says Press: some customers want that in-person experience. The other is his store is a green resource too.

    The store itself though is AWESOME. Such a great concept, great cause and if you’ve met the owner….he’s REALLY nice– friendly, smart, and….CUTE.

    Jenny, you beat me to it. This elementary school level grammar is pathetic!

    Sheesh. Even your headlines have the erroneous apostrophe inserted for the possessive for of ‘it.’ It should read “its” not “it’s.” “It’s” means “it is.” Really.

    The grammar, syntax and overall writing at kyw/cbs seems to need some serious work. You undermine the reporting and take the readership for granted when you continue to be so unprofessional.

    I’ve mentioned this on a couple of articles — but actually, almost every single article has problems.
