Championing a better world

     You, as an individual, can make a positive impact on the world around you. We, working together, can make that impact even greater. By implementing environmental and socially responsible initiatives, WSM seeks to create positive change in our neighborhood and around the globe. We measure our progress using a “triple bottom line” of financial, social and environmental sustainability. Our commitment to paying fair wages and buying local goods makes a multi-million dollar impact on our local economy, and our support of Fair Trade farmers extends that impact around the globe.
     Investing in recycling programs, alternative fuels, energy conservation, and sustainable agriculture minimizes our environmental footprint and helps raise awareness about the need to protect our natural resources.
     We provide a welcoming venue for community gatherings, and offer education and entertainment through our hundreds of free events. Our profits are reinvested in the local community through donations and grants to non-profit organizations that promote social activism in our area.
     We believe that together we can work to make the world a better place. This is not just a slogan at WSM; it is a call to action. We are a diverse and ever-growing group of citizens committed to working together to realize our hopes and dreams for our community, economy, and environment. Join us!
