A New Sustainable Home Goods Shop Just Launched Online
A new sustainable home goods shop has arrived, making its grand debut ahead of Earth Day earlier this week. Shades of Green, a platform dedicated to more sustainable consumerism, launched its online store with a curated selection of environmentally-conscious homeware, kitchenware, and outdoor products. From hand-blown recycled glass tumblers to alpaca wool throw blankets, prices range between $17.50 and $398.
The shop also has a user-friendly sustainability evaluation system that evaluates each product on a one to five scale, differentiated by various shades of green. A product with a one criteria in a light shade of green signals that it scores high in one of the brand’s sustainability evaluation criteria, while a product with a five criteria in a darker shade of green signals that it meets all of the criteria in terms of sourcing, manufacturing, shipping, and more.
“As consumers, we desire high-quality products and services that enable a healthier lifestyle and directly contribute to a more sustainable planet,” said Angela Wade, founder and CEO of Shades of Green. “By providing a curated assortment of beautifully designed, but also sustainable and healthy products, we are helping educate consumers so they can make informed purchasing decisions and become better stewards of our planet.”
In the kitchenware section, products include a rustic cutting board made from recycled and discarded wood ($140), an earthy green handcrafted two-tone rectangular tray ($94), a white enamel cast iron skillet ($95) made from 40 percent recycled cast iron, and whimsical bubble drinking glasses ($132.80) handcrafted from recycled glass — all of which ranging between a three to five scale.
