Earth Week: Green your Shopify

Earth Week: Green your Shopify

Going green: it’s not just a trend anymore. People are finally realizing that we need to make some serious changes in our lifestyles, for our own health and that of the planet. And these Shopify stores are ahead of the curve. Read on and see what your fellow Shopifyers are doing to help others be green!

Jewelry: The Elva Fields shop has a unique and brilliant approach to jewelry. She scours markets both near and far as well as auctions and shops for unusual vintage and antique pieces to use in their beautiful jewelry lines. The finds are then lovingly reconfigured and incorporated in unexpected, timeless designs. It’s one of the best worlds of recycling: with a fraction of the energy output consumed by making new jewelry, she makes new, creative and desireable designs for her customers to enjoy.

Carbon Credits: The Simple Footprint Project in Maple Ridge, BC allows you to purchase carbon offsets – home offsets, personal offsets, travel offsets and several more offsets for a wide range of habits and lives. “In 2006, this project developed over 200,000 tonnes of carbon credits in the District of Maple Ridge over an area of approximately 83 hectares, and involved the planting of over 25,000 indigenous Douglas firs, Sitka spruces, Western red cedars, Western hemlocks and cotton woods.”

Skin Care: Ottawa’s Oresta Organics carries a wide range of well respected organic skin care products, from Pangea to Simply Divine Botanicals and others.

Gardening: Australia’s Productive Gardens carries a full line of items designed to help you grow your own organic garden. They carry a wide range of natural pest and disease control products, organic fertilisers, tools and gadgets, seeds and more.

Clothes and Unique Items: Love Eco carries well designed and high quality eco-alternative products – and what’s more, they’re fun! They carry funky wool felt lampshades – made from recycled wool hats!, cool chicken doorstops made from vintage fabric remnants, plush bamboo sheets and towels, and lots more. Not only is their stuff ecofriendly, it’s also unique and eye-catching. Nice!

Soaps: New Zealand’s Clean Earth Soap is hand made from moisturizing olive oil and certified organic coconut and palm oils. They’re then scented with lovely essential oils and enriched with clays and plant butters to be oh so soft on your skin. All of their soaps are made in small batches at their home-based business and contains no animal ingredients, detergents or foaming agents.

Gifts: If you’re hankering after a gift basket or know someone who is, Gift Baskets King carries a wide range of gift baskets including all organic baskets. They even have “luscious organic, nut-covered Chocolate English Toffee. Yum!

Activism: Cool People Care is saving the world, five minutes at a time. And they have a store to prove it, selling everything from cool shirts to fair trade coffee to reusable mugs.

Finally, for Clothing: Therapy Clothing’s tagline is “Dress well. Eat chocolate. Live green.” And they provide you with the means to deal with at least two of those requirements, by selling an entire line of stylish green clothing made with sustainable fabrics such as bamboo and organic cotton.
