Encinitas: Help Save Global Grind!

“Reclaimed lumber”, “reusable tote-bags”, “recycled cardboard”, and a little family business coffee cart selling brew to folks out front of the library. Sounds good, right? Not to mayor of Encinitas, California or the no-doubt overeducated jugheads who run the town’s library. They want Global Grind, a small business out front of the library, to stop selling upcycled tote bags – because who needs extra revenue, right? Life is SO much easier when city and state taxes pay your mortgage, especially when your state is like 69 billion dollars in debt.

Global Grind’s lease is in jeopardy. Help stop this travesty in Encinitas! Save Global Grind!

  • Thanks so much for the random act of kindness! We own and operate Global Grind Coffee and are super blessed to have this beautiful cart in front of the Encinitas library. This scrutiny was all of the opinion of one woman, who was an ex-council member/ex-mayor. We we renewed for another lease period but had to remove our reclaimed book bags. We feel bullied from this individual but please know we have a strong relationship with the city! We are curious to know how we got on your radar Llewellyn Sinclair? So excited and we feel the love!! I used to live in Portland and miss it dearly. xox Danielle

    Hey Everyone!

    So, I happen to live in Encinitas, and I love libraries so I cruise by Global Grind every week. Today, I dropped by and inquired about the story! Good news is, they are not in jeopardy. Shortly after the complaint, the city elected to find Global Grind not in violation of their lease, but renewed GG’s lease for 5 more years! Disaster averted. It is a beautiful library, though.
