I just found out that today is Blog Action Day. I wish I had a little more time to prepare a post, BUT, in the spirit of spontaneity, here we are.
The thing I know most about is organic stuff. Buying organic food, goods, and home things, is the best way you can personally help the environment on a day-to-day basis. And, fortunately, it's not always more expensive. As a student, I've become quite the organic goods bargain shopper...
Here are some of my favorites.
Stewart and Brown- Organic Pioneers!
The Green Loop
a lovely conglomerate of different organic brands.
a little more pricey, but lovely nonetheless
for the outdoors. check out the upcycled backpacks!
you can recycle your Patagonia t-shirts here.
The Organic Fit
eco-positive t-shirts. check out the items for the little people!
HOME AND VARIETY
shop the sale and drool over everything else.

a variety of eco items.
Vitamin Shoppe - Eco Edition

The Company Store
