Here at ET we show love for our Earth everyday by our practices: buying and sourcing local products, not using plastic bags, recycling everything we can, using reusable and compostable food containers, using environmentally friendly building materials, offering enviro credits for biking, walking and bringing your own bags, using LED lighting etc… The Earth is our home and we want to help protect it for future generations.

Save the Cans Recycling Drive


If all you need is love, then why not a record setting amount of it?! Show yours by bringing in your aluminum cans to support Enrichmond’s next Earth Day Community Impact Project.

The Enrichmond Foundation has partnered with Hardywood Park Craft Brewery, River City Recycling, TFC Recycling, My Glasses Rule, and VCU to break the Guinness World Record for the largest recyclable structure made from aluminum cans on Earth. How you ask? By collecting 110,000 cans and turning them into a recyclable “LOVE” sculpture to be unveiled on Saturday, April 26th during the official Earth Day Richmond Festival in Shockoe.

Help us help Enrichmond reach their goal, break a Guinness World Record, and better our environment through recycling! Leave your empty aluminum cans in our big blue bin out front of the store now through April 25th.
