Another Great Source for Green Living in Brooklyn


Since beginning my work with From the Source, I’ve blogged about community events such as the Dumbo Arts Festival, local area build/design firms with an eco-conscious mission and product development. I’ve noted in some of my posts that we strive as a company to provide beautiful and environmentally friendly home furnishings- but the question remains how do you further integrate green living into all levels of home life?

Walking through many local markets you will find select groupings of green cleaners, recycled paper towels, organic grocery or bath and beauty items amongst other larger label products but how great would it be to not have to sift through isles upon isles of merchandise to find the best of those things? What if there was a shop whose entire stock was environmentally friendly? What if it could be that easy?

Well it exists…and it’s called Green in BKLYN…..

Elissa, owner of Green in BKLYN, states it best on the store’s website when she says “We wanted to act in a way that was healthier for ourselves and our planet‚Ķ but, like many busy people today, we also needed it to be convenient and easy.”

Green in BKLYN is self described as a “one-stop shop where people who’d like to live an eco-friendly lifestyle – and those who already do – can find information and the products they need to easily and inventively green their home and daily lives.”

Just a small list of some of the things carried at Green in BKLYN:

  • Cleaning Supplies (sponges, cleansers, bio bags‚Ķ)
  • Recycled Paper Products (stationary, towels, tp‚Ķ)
  • Sheets & Towels (for bath & kitchen)
  • Kitchen Supplies (recyclable & sustainable)
  • Energy Savers (CFLs, solar powered chargers‚Ķ)
  • Beauty Products (lotions, soaps, nail polish‚Ķ)
  • Kids Products (toys, pacifiers, diapers‚Ķ)
  • Coffee, Tea & Chocolate
  • Crafts & Books

Just think- when you shop there you are not only making environmentally friendly choices you are also supporting small business. So go check Green In BKLYN out at 432 Myrtle Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11205
