It always amazes me when I come across some of the incredible things our sellers are doing to make their businesses more eco friendly. Take Matthew Holdren for example, who builds furniture from salvaged and reclaimed wood from old homes being torn down in his New Orleans neighborhood. He even built his workshop and home from these same salvaged materials and hopes to run his shop off of solar power in the near future.
Andrea Crouse of gaiaconceptions is also focused on using natural materials like organic cotton, hemp and wool within her line of eco conscious clothing. She hand dyes all the fabrics using low-impact fiber reactive dyes or natural plant dyes in her North Carolina studio.
