Best Eco-Centric Gifts (2011)
We’re loving this fun-to-browse green gift boutique, which recently relocated to a roomier and more prominent location in the charming and (fingers crossed) rebounding main shopping district in Larchmont. Spotlighted is a fresh and clever collection of eco-friendly apparel, accessories, and home furnishings by independent designers and fair trade collectives from locales ranging from Brooklyn to Brazil. The majority are made from recycled or repurposed materials such as wet suits, juice boxes, pull-tabs, MTA transit maps, comic strips, newspapers, seat belts, and 35-millimeter film reels. What we recently spotted: a chair featuring recycled golf clubs, a cool rocking chair fashioned from a surfboard (shown here), and whimsical chip bowls that were once old vinyl records.
