The next time you are in Houston, TX, make sure to add one more place to your must see/visit list: One Green Street. As one of the first of its kind, this store is truly a one stop shop for everything that is eco-chic. Sherry Eichberger founded the boutique with the goal of educating the general public about living a natural, healthy, eco-friendly lifestyle without all the toxins and chemicals found in our everyday lives. The store carries a wide variety of products ranging from environmentally friendly and toxin free furniture to make-up to clothing to everyday household items. Even the building itself is environmentally conscious. It is LEED certified, has energy efficient lighting, takes advantage of the natural sunlight, and was remodeled with the use of recycled materials. The builders even took the materials from the remodeling to reuse on their next project. This boutique is definitely a great place for those looking to live a healthy and organic lifestyle. Make sure to visit One Green Street and bring along your reusable shopping bag! To find out more information about the boutique, please visit http://onegreenstreet.com/index.php .
