Summer Recap – Greenheart Shop

This summer has been full of weddings and other fun adventures which is why I have been a little MIA the past few weeks.  One of my favorite adventures this summer was during my trip to Chicago over the 4th of July.  In April, I posted about Greenheart Shop in Chicago and I was finally able to visit their store on Division Street in the Wicker Park neighborhood.

Here is a look at my latest find! The Wire Cuff Ring comes in silver and gold and was made in India through Chicago-based Mata Traders.  This ring has definitely become the newest staple!

If you’re like me and have had plenty of weddings filling up your weekends, Greenheart Shop is a great place to find unique gifts.  I LOVE the Wood Sobremesa Collection.  The Teakwood Pizza Board and Teakwood Oblong Cutting Board are two of my favorite gifts to give to newlyweds.  They might not be on their registry, but both are an essential for any kitchen.

Don’t they just look AMAZING?!

For those who are getting married and looking for wedding registry ideas, consider registering on Greenheart Shop’s website!  It’s fun, unique, AND has a ton items to help establish your new home!  Not to mention, they sell fair trade and sustainable products!  DO good, while you shop.  😉


Do you have a Greenheart?

It never fails to amaze me how awesome it is to connect to customers that come in to shop where I work.  I come in to contact with amazing people every day hearing stories, passing on advice, or just connecting on a personal level with women shopping in our store.  Today, I saw the coolest clutch ever.  Little did I know, the coolest clutch ever had an even cooler back story.

Enter Greenheart.  Greenheart is a Fair Trade organization based out of Chicago and is a nonprofit, eco friendly store.  For those who are not familiar with the definition of Fair Trade, it is a way to promote stability and support producers and artisans in developing countries.  While, there is no exact definition, this is the main idea.

Moving on… Greenheart carries products that are made by artisans from all over the world, sells them to you, and sends 15 – 30% back to the producers.  Learn more about one of their 52 Artisans here.  With products for your home and kitchen, as well as jewelry, journals, purses, wallets and more, there is something for everyone.  They have some great gift ideas for that special person or special event you have coming up.

Get shopping… and save the world while you’re at it! 😉  Don’t be shy!  They’re on Twitter, Facebook and have their own blog!  It’s definitely worth taking a look!  Have a Greenheart.
