"Greeno sub shop is a non-profit, student run collective. Having this designation, we strive to continuously educate our community and ourselves about collective business practices, and to promote other student businesses and organizations. For our community, we desire to create a fair, productive, and respectful space for our customers, to empower students to have a voice, and to reach out to our diverse community. For our co-managers, we encourage a fluid and open collective mindset to always improve our business plan through co-operative efforts. For the business as a whole, we hope to provide quality (organic and locally grown, when feasible) goods at affordable prices to substantially nourish our community and support collective income. A constant re-evaluation and understanding of our goals is imperative to the positive progression of our collective, to maintain revenues and improve shop quality."
