About

 

Weighstead provides resources and products that make it easy to transition to a sustainable lifestyle. We believe that small changes make massive impacts, and we are committed to reducing the impact of humanity on this planet. Be proud of your commitment to making the world better! We also want to take this opportunity to shed some light on some of our projects we’re excited about:

 1) Location

We are currently located at:

Eclectic Co.

214 1/2 N. Tejon,

Colorado Springs, Colorado 80903 

2) Terracycle: A company that helps bridge the gap in local recycling coverage, Terracycle has provided us with boxes that allow us to recycle common household items such as beauty products and ziplock bags that otherwise would not be eligible for recycling. It is so much better to recycle these items than allow them to occupy landfills, so we are happy to support the Terracycle initiative! We have the standard 5 Terracycle boxes at our Pikes Peak Market location, and a complete list of recyclable materials can be found at Terracycle.com

 

3) 1% for the Planet: We proudly donate 1% of all our profit to this wonderful organization that connects businesses and individuals with a means to support environmental initiatives in a very meaningful way. The impact of donations can be felt worldwide and ranges from clean water access in remote, impoverished areas to sustainable land management and climate change projects. The charities that they support are well known and have all of our support! Check out the revolution at onepercentfortheplanet.org

 

4)Colorado Association for Recycling: A 501(c)(3) non-profit organization comprised of all facets of the industry from state and local governments. We are a business member since June 2018 and attended the Colorado Recycling Conference in Aspen. We plan to attend more conferences during the summer. 

 ----------------------

Weighstead is built on the foundation of conscious living: consciously choosing what we bring into our homes and what we take out to the trash. One man's trash shouldn't be the ecosystem's inherited burden.

 

Mission

Provide a one-stop shop for affordable, sustainable products that are reusable, recyclable and or biodegradable.

Goal

Build a community for people who wish to reduce their carbon footprint and live a less-waste lifestyle. 

Community

 

Weighstead is based out of Colorado Springs. At 12% recycling rate, we are in dire need of a zero waste initiative to jump-start a proactive sustainable community.
