Last week I focused on Cape Cod entrepreneurs. This week I am highlighting off Cape green companies.
Where Clothes – I have to put a plug in for my industrious daughter Amy Wild who runs this earth friendly clothing line. Each one of a kind piece of clothing is designed, repurposed and constructed by Amy who uses vintage, antique and recycled materials. (Many of her designs feature antique lace.). She also has an adorable line of children’s clothes, accessories and takes custom orders as well. Amy’s passion for protecting the environment and humanity along with her artistic flair and creativity is what drives her business. All of these clever and unique upcycled items are available on-line.
Soluna Garden Farm – From her one-acre farm in Winchester, MA, Amy Hirschberg sustainably grows herbs and flowers, specializing in unusual herbs like Mexican oregano, lemon verbena, and caraway scented thyme. She offers CSAs for both the herbs and flowers, all grown without chemical fertilizers, preservatives and pesticides. Soluna Farms participates in several farmers’ markets in the area selling tea, herb and spice blends, nutritional and medicinal tea and power food blends, and interesting salts, all grown with certified organic ingredients from companies with fair business practices. Now you can find Soluna Farm’s great selection of teas, tea flowers, accessories and other specialty items at their storefront location in Winchester. You can also get tea by the cup, served of course in compostable cups. If you are in the Boston area, visit this unique herb, spice and tea emporium or go on-line to purchase most products.
gohspa – Beth Gaudette’s green, organic and holistic (hence the name gohspa) day spa and beauty salon is a treat for the skin, the body and the mind. Beth has been a dedicated green cosmetologist for over two decades, well before it became fashionable. She sees gohspa as a place to relax with a focus on wellness and healthful beauty. Services in this warm and inviting green spa include organic manicures and pedicures, holistic facials, makeovers, hair removal, body care treatments and massages. gohspa also offers alternative services like Tui Na, a cross between acupressure and Shiatsu and tuning forks. I highly recommend the gohAGE-with-grace Facial, a preventative procedure that uses gentle machine assisted rhythmic action to encourage improved lymph flow and the release of toxins, along with carefully chosen organic products. Your skin will look younger and more radiant! gohspa’s caring and capable technicians assure your spa experience will be exceptional, ultra relaxing and healthy!
With their passion and conscientious approach to all things “green”, these hard-working green entrepreneurs are making a difference. Email me about the unusual and creative green things entrepreneurs are doing in your area!
