Two New Uptown Businesses

 
Stephanie Shearer and Chris Bacorn, longtime owners of the EZE MOP building and shops on E. 17th Ave., have recently sold their small shops in the complex.  Welcome to Revolte and Mudd House Mercantile! Here’s a bit about each shop.  Be sure to check them out at their grand openings on Friday, October 22, from 6-9 p.m.
 
Mudd House Mercantile, 1227 E. 17th Ave.
Katie and Erin Mudd are sisters who grew up in Colorado.  Their shop came about due to a desire to minimize waste.  After they became more cognizant of the plastic they were consuming, they began looking for sustainable, plastic free items for their homes.
 
Mudd House Mercantile is a collection of the items that they use and love.  They provide a one-stop shop for products that replace single-use, disposable products.  They are passionate about reducing waste and helping others to do so as well. And all of their cleaning and beauty products are free of palm oil.
 
Says Katie, “Why is palm oil used? Simply, it is cheap. Why won’t we source products that contain it? Because in order for palm oil fields to exist, rainforests in Indonesia and Malaysia are being destroyed. The rainforest is habitat for many endangered animals such as the orangutan, Sumatran tiger and Sumatran elephant and also home to people, insects, birds and plants that are so vital to the ecosystem.”
 
They invite neighbors to “join the Mudd House Mercantile community, where we can all work together to be much more kind to Mother Earth.”
