Remember The Lazy Environmentalist: Your Guide to Easy, Stylish, Green Living? Well, the author of the book, Josh Dorfman, didn't stop there. He's also the founder and CEO of Vivavi, which features three separate ventures: Vivavi retail stores, the Modern Green Living website, which helps Americans find a new green home, or ways to make their own homes green. Finally, he's the voice behind The Lazy Environmentalist, a nationally broadcast radio show on Sirius Satellite Radio and Lime Radio that showcases stylish and innovative green trends, technologies, products and services that make green living easy, attractive, and super-convenient. In 2006, Inc. Magazine named Vivavi one of the 50 most intriguing green businesses helping to drive the green revolution.
But the most fun for an ecochick - the shopping part - is at Vivavi.com. Seating, lighting, storage, kids, pets.. everything, all designer, unique, and environmentally friendly. You can also find listings of green designers, green architects, green realtors, green remodelers.. the list is huge, diverse and very useful. If nothing else, browsing through the photos of uniquely designed furniture is a treat for the eyes.
Shipping is available to Canada, although it's probably pretty pricey. Then again, if you can afford a Hand-woven water hyacinth Sushi day bed by Pie, shipping costs may not be something you worry about. Happy shopping!
