Best Green Hardware Store, August 2008

Lots of businesses sell an eco-minded product or two, but few have the foresight or dedication of Livingreen, which has been selling nothing but environmentally gentle goods since 1999. Nontoxic paints and cleaners are stocked alongside filtrating showerheads and building materials such as bamboo flooring, recycled-glass tile, and denim insulation. Furniture is made from recycled or sustainably harvested wood. Each product has a rating indicating how lightly it treads on the earth.
