Introduce your unrepentantly shopaholic friends to green living, in a language they'll understand, by luring them to Appel & Frank's first Eco-Chic Shopping Event. (Baby steps, people. Baby steps.)
Penciled in for Thursday, Sept. 27 from 5 to 9:30 p.m., at the Regency Center in San Francisco, the evening of eco-friendly shopping will feature 65 independent designers, including TreeHugger favorites Anna Cohen, Del Forte, and Wildlife Works.
Another highlight for conscious consumers: A sustainable café lounge equipped with furniture made from salvaged and found materials. Shoppers can rest their weary feet and sip free organic, fair-trade coffee from take-home travel mugs, while picking up a few pointers on how to reduce their carbon footprints.You'll also get to enjoy spa treatments with pure ingredients by Kamalaspa, Brown Bag Botanicals, and Amea Skindividuals, as well as partake of sake2me's all-natural drinks.
Tickets are $10 and can be purchased online until Sept. 27, 10 a.m., or at the door. The first 300 shoppers to arrive at the event will get a reusable tote stuffed with green goodies. Plus, a portion of the event's proceeds will go to the environmental non-profit Friends of the Urban Forest. ::Appel & Frank
