The green-painted brick storefront is the first clue to what lies inside Reclaim, located on the site of a former rug store on Menlo Park's main drag. The store, which opened in late March, carries a wide range of green home products (many of which you've read about on AT).
Not only does the downtown shop sell non-toxic home cleaners, organic and vintage home accessories, and organic sheets and towels, there are bigger ticket items, too: Reclaimed wood furniture, EKLA Home organic upholstered furniture, organic mattresses from Green Sleep and Savvy Rest. And, for the renovator, Yolo Colorhouse paint, non-vinyl wallpaper, Eco Timber wood flooring, cork flooring, Vetrazzo, IceStone, Syndecrete, and PaperStone countertops, and a line of locally made, custom cabinets in FSC-certified hardwood, bamboo, or "no formaldehyde added" plywood that are finished with low-VOC paints and sealers.
Bridget Bradley, a former staff editor at Sunset, writes and edits home improvement and decorating books. She and her husband Kirk opened the store after the idea occurred to her while she was researching a green home book.
Reclaim also offers interior design services.
