You may remember seeing this shop on my blog last year! It’s definitely special to me since their brick-and-mortar is located in the same town my mom owned a sewing machine store for over a decade. I did much of my growing up in Culpeper, VA, and wish we had the Green Roost around when I was kid :D
Reasons to Love Green Roost
Conscious Products for the Entire Family: I love it when a store can incorporate baby to papa! It’s a great space to go to when shopping for gifts since you can easily check everyone off your list in one go. Green Roost definitely shows you can make conscious choices when purchasing gifts for others and not have to sacrifice quality or style in the process.
Easy to Shop via Social Media: I think for most of us, Instagram is our main source of information regarding ethical and eco-friendly products. Well, why not shop directly from there? With Green Roost’s Instagram, products are uploaded daily in their stories, and all you have to do is send a DM to start the purchase. They receive lots of new products throughout the week, and not everything makes it to their website. Instagram gives you that first chance to snag it!
Brick-and-Mortar for Virginia: Being able to actual visit an eco-conscious store is a refreshing experience. For anyone who lives in the VA area, I highly suggest you taking a trip to Culpeper and visiting their little downtown.
What We’re Using
Leather Phone Wallet: I know I may be living life on the edge, but I actually prefer to use my phone without a case. This wallet is perfect because it can protect my phone while in my handbag, but I can still use the phone case free. This leather is also dyed using a more eco-friendly technique and avoids the usual harsh chemicals found with most leather goods.
Cotton & Wax Soy Candle: When will the internet let you smell things?! This eucalyptus candle smells absolutely amazing. Plus, 10% of profits are donated to support animal rescue.
Artisan Soap Bar: Whenever I have guests over, I love opening a new bar of soap and lighting a candle in the bathroom. I got to do this last night when a lot of my family came over for dinner! I think everyone appreciates a brand new bar of soap - and hey, no plastic!! :D
Bamboo Onesie: Milkbarn makes the SOFTEST onesies I’ve ever felt, and their mission makes their product even better. Through Exile International, Milkbarn is able to bring restoration to rescued child soldiers and children orphaned by war in DR Congo and Uganda. This program empowers them through art therapy and holistic, rehabilitative care in order to become leaders of peace.
p.s. remember this blanket?
