I think the single greenest place you can shop is Esty. You can find green and eco-friendly items in larger stores but no place gives you the opportunity to find local (or within the US and CA), organic, creative, vintage, up-cycled, healthy items like Etsy can. There are thousand of creative people on Etsy giving us all an opportunity to make greener and healthier choices and I love to support it.
As some of you may know I am part of the Green Sisterhood, a group of environmental writers who have joined together to write about topics that are important to all of you. Behind the scenes we are also a great resource for one another for research and information. Being part of this group was one highlights of 2013 for me. As the year comes to close we put together a giveaway with some of our favorite Etsy sellers to thank you for being here.
So check out these shops and leave a comment (required) as to what other items you would like Santa to bring you. [Read more…]
