Introducing TreeHugger Personal Shopper


Face it, even the most ascetic of environmentalists needs a pair of jeans now and then. Or a new countertop for an aging kitchen. Or a gift for your decidedly non-hippie Great-aunt Millie, who wouldn't be amused if you dedicated an entire grove of saplings to her.

When scouring your local flea markets and thrift stores—or your parents' garage—for used goods doesn't work out, we're here to help you navigate TreeHugger's archives and the rest of the World Wide Web for new, sustainable options that will, whether it's an eco-friendly wedding dress or ecologically and socially conscious carpeting for your new downtown office. We've got your back at shopper [at] treehugger [dot] com. Our operators are standing by their in-boxes, as we speak.

(Do note, however, that we won't be able to answer every question that pops into our crammed in-boxes. Letters may also be edited for clarity and grammar.)
