If your attempts at going green have been a little shaky after forgetting to pack a bag for a possible spontaneous trip to the grocery store or dreading the task of sorting your recycling which by the way, can be more difficult than rocket science. Have no fear…thanks to go-to home retailer, Crate and Barrel it has become a lot easier to live green. After some investigating on their site (keyword search: eco-friendly), the brands eco-secret was out. They may not have an easy-to-find green collection but once you’ve searched you’ll discover over 300 hundred items that have gone green, not tacky and not overpriced.
