At the corner of Vine Street and Central Parkway, in the growing-by-leaps-and-bounds Gateway Quarter, you’ll find Park + Vine – the place in town for recycled, ecologically sustainable and just plain fun clothes, cleaning, bath and baby products – and interesting household items.
On my latest trip, I found recycled, recyclable, reusable, dishwasher safe plastic cutlery, tumblers and plates – and they are green! I always gather up all the plasticware, wash and re-use it after a gathering – good to go green in that area – pun intended!
I also found biodegradable / compostable snack plates made of sugar cane stalks! And spoons made of the same material. Just a few weeks in the compost pile – and they’ll be gone.
The store also carries bambooware – chic and trendy, but way more expensive than the others, so I skipped it – at least this time.
Park + Vine also now has a number of good books on green-ness, including one on eco-weddings – and a wedding registry.
Isn’t it great when what we want is also good for the earth? Makes me happy!
