I think our family does a pretty good job and doing everyday tasks anticipating a greener lifestyle. Whether we turn out the lights when not in use, recycle, buy organic foods and green cleaning products, upgrading our old appliances to Energy Star-qualified appliances, using cold water when washing our clothes, hanging clothes out when the weather permits, looking for Eco-friendly clothing, walking instead of driving and possibly one day owning a hybrid car…you get the point. While I know we could do a better job, we have started to make a difference and that is a start. I’ll admit and say it is a pain to shop around when looking for green products, not one store in my area sells only natural products, but there is an online retailer which is a blend of Etsy and Whole Foods featuring bits and pieces from Amazon, Groupon and Home Shopping Network and that website is Abe’s Market. They are your all natural online store and feature everything from baby products, beauty, fashion, pets, food and more. There is no need to browse around several places because they have it all.
For a long time co-founders Richard Demb and Jon Polin talked about starting a business that they’d feel great about – a business that is wonderful for both businesses and consumers and that would have a positive impact on the environment. As natural product enthusiasts, they envisioned a place that would enable shoppers to discover fantastic, hard-to-find products and to really connect with the product creators – the way markets were once run.
But that is not all. Think about going online to purchase a product, something that interests you, you may get a small description of the product, right? Well at Abe’s Market they give you the origin of the product and who better to learn about those products than from the products’ creators themselves. No more searching around labels, or small product description boxes on the page. So for instance. Say I’m looking for natural baby toys. Once I find my item and click on it I can get the information on the product by meeting the creator in text or a really cool video series! I get all the information I need about the product. What’s in it? Where it’s made? How? You can even chat directly with sellers to ask specific questions so you know that you can trust and be comfortable with the products you bring into your home.
But their In-The-Know video series is helpful and Abe’s want you to stay in-the-know and up to date with maintaining a green, natural and healthy lifestyle. With several videos available I really enjoyed their video on how to buy Eco-friendly toys. You should check it out, it gives some great tips on kid powered toys, wood and what to look out for(dangers.)
