One of the things we love most about being a publishing company is the opportunity to stay atop the hundreds of companies that are doing business right and making products that are dedicated to a better, greener planet.
We met a bunch of companies at the recent San Francisco Green Festival, and while we loved the vegan and vegetarian food and the natural products on offer, we also enjoyed seeing all the different clothing brands available to attendees. These companies are using sustainable materials like organic cotton or upcycled items, and sharing messages of plant-powered love!
Check out some of the brands that were featured at the San Francisco Green Festival, and jump the bottom to get the detailed list for the upcoming Portland Green Festival.
