Located in Cambridge just a few blocks from Porter Square, Greenward is in a nondescript building across from another design shop, Abodeon. After you get your fill of mid-century finds there, cross the street and head downstairs to this garden level Green store. We found products running the gamut from paper goods, housewares, clothing, pet supplies, and laptop sleeves and the thread holding it all together is what they call "eco-modern."
Greenward's own definition:
As we define it, an eco-modern product is always elegantly designed, attractive, and functional. It is also at least one of the following:
- made from recycled materials
- made from organic materials
- made from sustainable materials
- energy efficient
All products at Greenward are screened to fit these criteria. Being green doesn't mean having to sacrifice style. Moving "greenward" benefits our homes, our communities and our planet!
It was easy to forget we were being responsible consumers with all the beautiful products on display. We bought a ceramic vase made by Perch at a deep discount and an organic cotton onesie with a screen-printed bicycle for our nephew. We'll be making a trip back soon for a kitchen composter.
Greenward is hosting a release party for CRAFT Magazine on June 21 from 3-6pm - a great time to check out the store and score some great gift bags. More on Greenward and this event here.
