St. Armands Circle located in Sarasota, Florida is a luxorious shopping center, complete with art galleries, eateries, extravagant stores and souvenir shops, which I have been visiting since I was a little girl. This year my trip yielded some fabulous eco-friendly finds!
I was astounded to find that when I asked one shop owner if she had any green products she pointed me in every direction and led me around the store to scout these beautiful items. "Envirosax" bags, "Positively Green" and "Live What You Love" note and postcards, "MineOrganics" kidswear and even, "North Star" candles lined the shelves offering shoppers options to help save the beautiful Florida region.
This excited me greatly, and the owner was thrilled to have me take interest and photograph her products. It just shows that New York is not the only place obsessed with "green". The eco movement is clearly, well, moving!
