Why Shop Evergreen?

First and foremost, I created Evergreen because I wanted to help people drink less alcohol. But almost equal to that, is my goal to help people consume better products. We scrutinize every nutrition label and ingredient list before bringing on a new product. Too much sugar? Artificial colorings? On to the next one!

If you're interested, here's what we avoid:

  • artificial colorings and dyes
  • high added sugar content
  • sugar alternatives like Stevia, Monkfruit, Splenda, sucralose, aspartame (some people have no issue with Stevia or Monkfruit, but we personally don't like the taste)
  • too many preservatives and specifically preservatives like Disodium EDTA (usually potassium sorbate and sodium benzoate are unavoidable. Sulfites may be present in the wines we offer, but we're happy to offer this wine from Kally that uses less sulfites).
  • artificial flavorings
  • Hemp/THC

We are very aware of the glyphosate (Roundup) that is sprayed on many non-organic crops, which is why we offer Zera wines, which are organic. You will find many of the products we offer include organic ingredients. We will always look to bring on a product that uses organic ingredients versus a product that does not because of the risk of glyphosate in the products and because of GMOs. (If it's organic, then it's non GMO by default). We try to limit our exposure of glyphosate as much as we can in our lives, so we aim to do the same for our customers. We only sell products that we trust.

I created Evergreen because I wanted to help people drink less alcohol. Whether because of pregnancy, you're sober-curious, just for fun, addiction, health reasons - whatever it is - we support it, and want to help you on your journey. I have seen too much addiction around me and wanted to do something about it, something that would make it easier for people to choose not to drink if that's what they want. I also know countless people who want to stop drinking alcohol, but can't because they're caught in this societal structure of feeling like they have to drink. Nobody should feel bad for a choice they want to make for their own body, nor should they be peer pressured.

Non-alcoholic beverages have come such a long way and I'm so happy they have! No more, "I'll just have club soda and a lime." At Evergreen we only sell products we believe in. We're extremely picky about what we sell, where it comes from, and what's inside of it. When deciding between brands, we look for ones that use organic ingredients, fewer preservatives, and less added sugar. We do not sell any hemp/CBD/THC products.

So why shop with us? Because we have faith in a future where people consume less alcohol and become healthier beings as a byproduct.
