Green is as Green Does

If Forrest Gump had taken up the torch of Eco-Warrior, we imagine him saying that to his detractors: “Mama says, Green is as Green Does.”

At ecosumo, we pay close attention to the products we provide.  Our aim is to partner with brands that manufacture, process, and ship using methods that are as Green as possible.  We research and select our partners carefully.  However, as you know, you can never know enough, so that’s why we’re inviting you discuss our partner’s products with us here on the blog – in a comment to either this post or any of the many product highlights we will be posting over the coming years.


As two product examples, lets use Envirosax and English Retreads line.  Envirosax are nylon and provide an eco-conscious product because they 1) cut out the whole throw-away paper or plastic sacks and 2) provide a reusable bag for years of use.  English Retreads use truck tire inner tubes to create their “fashionista” handbags, so that’s 1) 100% recycled post-consumer product and 2) vegan.  Both brands – like all the other’s we partner with – do what they can to provide products that do as little harm as possible to Mama Gaia.

If you use one of the products and have a review, or if you have valid information about one of the products, feel free to fly that flag here…it’s the reason we’re making as social as possible – so that our online presence is more a bazaar rather than a quiet marketplace.

You can find all our partners products by shopping our many categories at  More later!  Peace – Ricky and Steve.
