We want to restore the economic river that big online retailers blocked in college towns.
A student's default shopping experience should be one that highlights the town supporting their school, and one that says "I am choosing my community."
Right now, convenience in shopping means half-full trucks and a spike in fuel emissions; it means the storeowners that support your community lose to tech giants, but it does not have to be like that.
Convenience could mean an evolution in how small businesses interact with students; an evolution into a world where one button can push us towards a cleaner, more connected future.
Delivering from stores in downtown Middlebury directly to the college reduces the distance between the seller and your dorm.
Your choice to shop local is an active step towards a sustainable community, and we help you make that move without compromising convenience.
De facto CEO
I am a student at Middlebury College, an avid hiker, and an amateur chef. You can also find me making beats on my laptop or dancing in the kitchen. I'm here because of many helping hands, but so far, it's just me on the team! :)
Chris has been helping us find our best voice and stay on track of our marketing goals.
Huge thanks for all the work he has put in!
Ivonne helps us put our ideas into a perfect frame, and she's the head of our upcoming photo series on our partners.
Big thanks for all of her awesome photography!
We provide a delivery service and marketing space for local businesses to connect directly to students. Our goal is to highlight the stores we support and make local inventory not just visible, but the first choice of Middlebury students looking to shop online. Depending on when you order, we can guarantee you same-day or next day delivery, giving you convenience while sending cashflow to the local economy.
If you ever wanted an alternative to the e-commerce giants out there, we're it! And with your support, we can grow immensely and make e-commerce healthier for everyone.
All you do is shop at the store you want and select GreenTown VT for local delivery at checkout.
