Going Green: Other local spots

Posted By on Wed, Apr 22, 2009 at 3:28 PM

Of course, there are so many places in Charlotte where you can buy green items, but here are some other tips I've gotten in lieu of Earth Day.

From Sleepy Poet Antique Mall:

"As we are a seller of "used" and recycled items, basically our whole mall is 'green.' We use end rolls of paper from the Observer to wrap customer's purchases, (and also last week's Loafing!) We recycle any grocery or dept. store bags whenever possible, and we open the doors to use fresh air (as much as we can) rather than the A/C.

The building we now occupy was, when it was first built, an engine rebuilding shop for Ford. It began life as a recycler, and now houses another recycler! Our logo says "Rethink, Recycle, Reuse, Rebuy."

How about that!!!

4450 South Blvd


From Circa:

"We carry a line that is made of organic cotton. The line is Trinity, really great, affordable, organic tops."

8145 Ardrey Kell Rd, Ste 101


From Red Sky Gallery:

"We have jewelry (necklaces and earrings made from beer bottles and cokes bottles.) We have placemats, bowls, picture frames and purses made from recylced magazines and newspapers. We have bracelets from beer and coke cans."

9848 Rea Rd


From Dazzle:

"We have an entire 4-foot display of "green" items, and some are very unique (juice glasses made from Rolling Rock Beer bottles, Corona bottles, and Boylan's Cream Soda bottles). We have sold out twice of an item called Water Week (it's a set of 5 different water bottles in a tray that slides lengthwise in the refrigerator)."

8040 Providence Rd # 100


From Cottage Chic:

"We actually have a lot of "green" items, from organic bedding by Bella Notte to natural laundry detergents by The Laundress and Good Home Co. We also have some great canvas shopping/tote bags and locally made/all natural sugar scrub."

1232 East Blvd


From Salutations:

"We have several items that fit the “Green” category ~ the most gorgeous letterpress invitations on bamboo paper from Smock, Crane invitations and stationery (100% cotton ~ tree-free), Neela reusable shopping bags, etc."

14825 John J Delaney Dr # 130


From The Boulevard:

"Much of what Meow & Fetch, NoDa Kids, Heavenly Blessed does at The Boulevard is organic or green. I attached a flyer for one line I carry. We also carry Naked Bee products and its better than Burts Bee's products."


453 E. 36th St.
