Today, everyone is embracing a greener lifestyle by buying organic food, recycling, and changing out their lightbulbs. We are fortunate enough to live in a state that truly embraces this lifestyle and truly is engrained in our VT culture. It’s important to realize that every purchase decision made has an impact on the Earth. We all know that consuming less is eco-friendly, but at some point everyone needs to buy something new.
When you need something new but want to find products that have little or no negative impact on the Earth, The Green Life is the place to go!
The Green Life is locally owned and operated by Michael and Shannon Hassenberg, a husband and wife team. Shannon always dreamed of owning her own boutique. Mike has an ever increasing concern over the health of our planet. Both wanted to learn how to minimize their impact on the Earth. Wanting to live a more sustainable lifestyle and provide a healthier home for their three young children, Shannon’s urban style and Mike’s eco-awareness combined to create The Green Life—a unique shopping experience in Burlington, Vermont.
Located on Main St. in downtown Burlington, The Green Life is a place for costumers to buy products that are sustainable, recycled, upcycled or made of eco-friendly materials like organic cotton or bamboo. Buying green goods helps reduce the amount of waste filling up landfills, helps protect our natural resources, and helps reduce the toxins and chemicals surrounding us.
