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.
