Our Retail Store Opened Saturday, February 15th!
221 Broad St., Summit NJ (Corner of Broad and Ashwood)
We have been getting new products daily, and have about 50 refillable options. We are working on telling the story of each product, and then we will focus on getting our website in better shape. Janette had been scheduling public speaking engagements and was planning for a ribbon cutting but that's all on hold for now, so stay tuned.
Our team of Jennifer, Hasitha and Sigourney are on hold till things get better to keep everyone safe,
Our Coronavirus Protocols and Plans
As many of you are focused on COVID-19 or Coronavirus (the virus), know that we are as well. First and foremost, we hope that you and your families stay safe and healthy as you manage through these challenging times. Here is what we at Sustainable Haus are doing:
We are reading and following CDC protocols.
We are washing hands frequently with soap and water as we sing ourselves happy birthday twice to achieve the full 20 second proper washing.
We are wiping down hard surfaces (pumps, handles, lids, register, sinks, work areas, toys, etc) every day, and higher touch areas more often using 70% isopropyl alcohol spray.
We are washing scoops after every use.
We are using lots of our reusable wipes only once and washing them all each night with detergent and chlorine bleach.
We are not coming to work if sick or exposed to the virus.
How to actually buy stuff?
Phone in the order 9-9 any day.
I fill the order, invoice you, and you pay electronically with a credit card, venmo, check, etc.
Pick ups are during store hours which are subject to change and are currently Wed -Sun 11-4. Text when you arrive, and your order will be outsiode by the door.
If you want to have containers refilled, they MUST BE CLEAN. Just come during store hours, leave them in the bin outside the dodor, call me to discuss what you want, I fill, invoice and place them back outside.
Not sure what pattern or color you want. I can hold it up and show you and you can select.
How can we help you?
We will be here to serve you with more limited hours unless we are sick and unable to come to the shop and both curside pickup and deliveried are offered. (We will notify via our Instagram, FB and this website if we change hours or close.)
If social distancing requires more space and separation, we will acomodate by limiting store crowds. We will work with anyone who wants to come to the store, but stay outside while we fill your order. We can do porch pick ups and send invoices to meet your needs. Just email me at
To help meet community needs, rather than raise prices on essentials, we are offering 25% off SHM basic soap bars We have coconut soap both plain and mint, and coconut and olive oil coming soon with both plain and mint. Thety sell for $1.15/oz or about $5.65 for a 5 oz bar. As these are all hand cut, the size and thus price per bar will vary. This will be in place until further notice (during the pandemic), and provided supplies last. By the way, wondering if soap is truly effective? Great NY Times article explaining just how it works:
70% isopropyl alcohol available. 70% alcohol is what we use to wipe down hard surfaces, and is the key ingredient in hand sanitizer (as recommended by the CDC, see link above). We will offer DIY recipees to make your own sanitizers.
Thanks for checking in with us, stay safe and well,
-- Janette and the Sustainable Haus Mercantile Team
