Best Zero-Waste Outlet - 2009
Ellie's Eco Home Store
What could be more Boulder than an eco-friendly department store? Ellie's covers all the bases: There are green building materials, compact fluorescent lightbulbs, recycled copy paper, non-toxic cleaners, organic cotton sheets, just about everything compostable (from paper plates to trash bags) and even electric scooters. The green mega-market, an offshoot of manufacturer Eco-Products, which has been making biodegradable items in Boulder for nearly twenty years, is founder Steve Savage's dream come true and could easily become your green pasture, as well.
