Boulder has been rated America’s “foodiest” town by Bon Appetit magazine and boasts the “world’s best restaurants” according to my mother. This Sunday, drool over the best Boulder has to offer during Downtown Boulder’s Taste of Pearl.

Take a bite of Frasca’s sampling or sip (or chug) samples from Redstone Meadery at classic Boulder locations including Boulder Bookstore, Starr’s Clothing Company, Boulder Arts and Crafts and, yours truly, Pedestrian Shops! We will be hosting one local restaurant and one local winery in our beloved “croc cave” at the back of the store. To find out who we’re hosting get your tickets now! This one-of-a-kind Boulder event is for locals and visitors alike, and definitely not to be missed.

Make your reservations for the best of Boulder food, wine, and shopping at Taste of Pearl.

Green: Not Just the Color of Our Storefront

This Earth Day, we want you to know how Pedestrian Shops is trying making a difference in the world. Each and every day we aim to follow the three eco-friendly rules of reduce, reuse, recycle.

1. Reduce

Pedestrian Shops has been harnessing the sun’s power since March of 2008. We reduce our energy consumption by using the sun’s power to generate nearly 50% of the downtown store’s energy needs. Read more about our solar panels and our solar power purchase agreement here.

Later that year, Pedestrian Shops began enforcing a breakthrough closed door policy. This policy helps us keep our carbon footprint to a minimum by closing our doors when their air conditioning or heat is on. Sounds simple doesn’t it? Despite its “duh” factor, many retailers believe that keeping doors closed will also keep customers out, and bust out the doorstop even on days of unfavorable weather. Learn more about this policy and its impact on our store here.

2. Reuse

If you’ve ever ordered from our website, you may have noticed that your Merrell sandals were shipped in a Dansko box, or that your Birkenstocks arrived in an Ugg package. This is because we always always always reuse the shoe boxes that we no longer need our our customers don’t wish to keep. It’s such a simple way to reduce our dependence on natural resources.

3. Recycle

Every year we are proud to hold our Earth Day Shoe Drive. For a little over a week, we encourage all who visit the store to donate a pair of their gently worn shoes. With a donation, you will receive a 10% discount, but we are happy to accept donations without a purchase. We make sure these shoes get to those in need while you get to recycle shoes that would otherwise sit in a landfill for years to come. Get the details on our Earth Day Shoe Drive.

In addition, a number of brands we carry offer vegan, recycled or biodegradable products such as Simple, Read more about our solar panels and our solar power purchase agreement here.
