I love reader-submitted e-mails! Recently I received one from Liz of Cosa Verde, who had this to say about her new eco-website!
Our site, Cosa Verde , is a juried showcase for environmentally-friendly, handmade goods available directly from the
artists who create them. We wanted to create a site that’s one-stop shopping for all kinds of eco-friendly goods, available for sale anywhere online. Artists apply for a space in our showcase and then we link directly to wherever their goods are sold (Etsy, Dawanda, their own website, etc.) What makes us really unique is that you can browse
the site in the traditional way– by item category– or by ideology, browsing or filtering your search results by criteria like “organic” or “conflict-free.”
We’re really excited about the site.We’re definitely the new kid on the block, but we’re growing quickly, and I have been so impressed by the quality of goods and the passion for the eco-friendly that are coming from our artists.
