Greenward Opens in Cambridge, Massachusetts

Here's yet another reason for us to get off-island and take a day trip to Boston more often. The recently opened Greenward, located in Cambridge, Mass., is the only eco-boutique in the Boston area that specializes in home essentials, cool gifts and even cosmetics and jewelry.

The husband and wife team of Scott Walker and Simone Alpen define their store as "eco-modern." To them, this means that everything they choose to sell in their shop "is always elegantly designed, attractive, and functional."

They purchase items from companies that fit into at least one of these categories: made from recycled materials, recyclable, made from organic materials, handmade, made from sustainable materials, energy efficient, biodegradable, and educational.

If you live in the New England area, you know how difficult it is to find stores with these values. We'll be stopping by soon, Greenward, on our way to Envi of course. ::Greenward
