Are you a Green Revolution Supporter? The CEO and owner of Green n Brown.com wants their site to be viewed and promoted as THE shopping site for eco friendly, organic, and natural products. Honestly, they do a very good job presenting the company vision of creating a greener everyday life for people. This theory, they believe, can only happen from the bottom up, meaning it is a personal choice and the individual who will drive a “Green Revolution.”
Therefore, if your personal choice includes eco friendly products, Green n Brown is a shopping site for you. Every product comes with its own short note about its eco footprint and/or the eco impact the shopper is making. Moreover, if you want to learn how to reduce your eco footprint while shopping simply click their website banner. Green n Brown also supports world hunger relief and claims to make a donation to fight hunger with every sale. With such a prominent banner, I am compelled to also mention that I did not locate information on the specifics of their donation campaign, sorry.
A wide selection of products and categories are offered, including apparel for the entire family, home décor, health and beauty products, gifts, and even organic food is found on the site. I thought the apparel for women was most impressive. It is amazing to me how bamboo can be woven into a fabric. All of the apparel, where it for is men, women, or juniors is produced from organic natural materials like cotton, bamboo, or hemp.
This Mini Trench Coat for women is just fabulous, don’t you agree? The “hemp denim” is what sparked my interest. Not surprising for one who grew up in the 1970s, now a midlife woman, right? The product description truly does reveal the vision of Green n Brown,
“Hemp denim rocks this mini trench in a glamorous take on the classic trench. Jonano put an eco twist on this classic by using a hemp organic cotton dark wash structured denim with rugged “branch of peace” military button detailing, inset side pockets and a self sash belt. Wear this as a mini dress or with the matching cigarette pant which features a side zip and split hem to flash your heels. What better way to show your love for the Earth during the cold and rainy seasons?
Created to honor Mother Earth. Machine Washable Certified Organic Cotton and Organic Hemp, Imported. Size S – XL.”
In addition to the apparel, Green n Brown offers organic foods. How could I possibly pass up a review of their food department! I have to warn you, organic foods carry a rather hefty price tag. Green n Brown offers price incentives to help offset the costs. First, there is flat shipping rate of $2.99 however spend $100 and receive free shipping. Secondly, purchasing two food products nets a $5.00 discount and continues in five-dollar increments up to four products for a total savings of $15.00. Products include snacks, breakfast items, baking ingredients, pasta and rice, as well as prepared meals, however the largest product assortment was in beverages department.
The baking isle include all natural cornstarch, cocoa, carob chips, baking soda and powder from Ah!Laska, Bob’s Red Mill, Enjoy Life Foods, and Equal Exchange brands. Not a huge inventory for organic bakers however the beverage section covers everything from organic coffee and natural tea to juices, soda, and water!
Being a coffee enthusiast, I truly wanted to review organic coffee. Maybe find a new flavor or interesting fact about coffee… Oh what a revelation! The prices on many of the coffees were not much more than a grocery store. However, the facts supporting the purchase and consumption of organic coffee were overwhelmingly favorable.
Organic Coffee Facts
“Organic farming can yield up to three times as much food as conventional farming on the same amount of land, according to researchers from the University of Michigan.”
“Coffee is the third most common import in the U.S., behind oil and steel, respectively. The U.S. consumes about 1/3 of the world’s coffee.”
“A recent study of 600 people found that those exposed to pesticides had a 1.6 times greater risk of developing Parkinson’s disease than those who were not.”
In fact, I’m inclined to make the switch to organic coffee. Hubby would definitely grumble about the whole organic thing I’m sure, however, what he doesn’t know won’t hurt him, right?
The selection of green tea is reasonably extensive as well. While I may not totally support the “Green Revolution,” I am a big fan of green tea and support the positive medical claims surrounding the product.
According to Green n Brown, “The International Journal of Cancer, reported that women who drink at least one cup of green tea a day for a period of six months cut the risk of bile stones by 27 percent. They also lowered the risk of gallbladder cancer by 44 percent, and the risk of bile duct cancer by 35 percent.”
Though I reviewed just a few of the many organic products Green n Brown offers, I learned much about the natural, organic, and eco friendly concept. Admittedly, I’m still not a supporter of carbon footprint theory. Nevertheless, I really am going to increase our organic food consumption, beginning with my favorite beverage, coffee. After all, consuming fewer pesticides, chemicals, and processed foods will never produce BAD results. In addition, according to Green n Brown, the economic value is huge for North America.
To my eco friendly readers, please do check out Green n Brown, the CEO has done an exceptional job of supporting the Green Revolution company mission.
