T.S. Designs Works Locally to Build a Green Economy!

Submitted by greenamerica on July 1, 2010

 

Burlington, North Carolina is about to get a new cooperatively owned grocery store thanks to the organizing efforts of community members, including Eric Henry of  T.S. Designs and Green America board member.

The project received a $300,000 state grant that will propel the construction of the co-op which is owned by 1,600 residents. Henry is excited to be part of this opportunity to “reconnect our community to local agriculture.”

Henry presented T.S. Design’s Cotton of the Carolinas at the BALLE Conference. This sustainable “dirt to shirt” line keeps the entire labor process within the Carolinas. The presentation with t-shirt maker Brian Morrell and cotton farmer Ronnie Burleson was the talk of the conference.
