What does it mean to shop “Eco-Friendly”?

Eco-friendly shopping means that you consider the impacts of the product on the environment, both in how it is made and how it impacts the environment when disposed of. We’ve all seen the pictures of beaches filled with plastic and parks littered with waste. When you decide to shop eco-friendly you buy products that, if disposed of improperly, will not harm the ecosystem but also do not harm ecosystems when originally made. These include products like bio-degradable materials and naturally made products that decompose when thrown out. In recent years, marketers have seen a rising trend in customer’s desires to buy “green” products. Why not jump on the bandwagon and use your dollar to change the way we do shopping?

 Our Story

beach-beer-can-business-1098684.jpg

When a student noticed just how much waste was adding to the worsening flooding of her hometown Houston, Texas she decided something needed to be done about products that were bound to harm the environment. Plastic bags, bottles, tires, and other miscellaneous items that were discarded improperly would get stuck and jam the sewer systems on their way to the ocean. The accumulating garbage had to be removed by hand by local community members because their lifespans would properly surpass their own. She devoted a large portion of her high school to experimenting with different ways she could help educate her community about properly disposal methods like recycling etc. However, when she moved to college she realized the problem went beyond improperly discarding products but in the way the products were made. It was then that she wondered how it could become easier for people to be more responsible consumers. Hence, the birth of #Green. More than a website, #Green is meant to be a movement to inspire future generations to think critically about the kind of consumers they are. Not only should we care about what happens to our products once we dispose of them but also how they impact the environment when they are made.
