Being a "Green Business"

My dear friend Krisy, organizer of Montreal Shift, and I were talking today about what it means to be a "green business". The way I interpret it is an organization that commits to making their best efforts toward reducing their environmental footprint in every aspect of operations. ecocessories tries to do this by using recycled parts in all its products, buying used office furniture, using paper with recycled content, and, in the future, contributing to charitable organizations with a portion of its profits.

Mission Statement

"ecocessories is committed to reducing waste in the world, and creating a more sustainable lifestyle by reusing existing resources. Hand-crafted jewelry and accessories are created using recycled parts and fair trade materials. ecocessories participates in an overall mission to create a more harmonious planet by slowing down the consumption of the planet's resources and supporting fair trade business."
