Tell us about MacRae’s Sustainable Goods and why you started it. MacRae’s offers products to our community which are safe for people and the planet! We work hard to find vendors who carry this goal from the beginning to the end of life of their products. The items we carry in the store include products for personal care, home, pets, cleaning, laundry, and much more. We’re particularly proud to offer closed loop refillable cleaning and personal care goods. Closed loop means the bulk containers we receive are returned to the vendor to be cleaned out and refilled – so that nothing is thrown away in the process! MacRae’s is located at 108 Washington Street in Marblehead. We hope you will stop in and see all of the great products we have in our store!

What is your favorite spot in Marblehead, and why? Crocker Park feels magical everytime I go to it! I love seeing it at different times of the day as it has a different personality at each time.
