Retailer Profile: Greener Country

Robert Meinke in front of his shop, Greener Country

Last year at the Green Festival in Washington, DC, I met Robert Meinke, a Long Islander who was then putting the finishing touches on his LEED-certified shopfront in Jericho, NY. The shop opened for business last month. Robert and his wife and co-proprietor, Maria Brandis, believe that the sooner green becomes mainstream, the better. That's why they started Greener Country. They want to make it easier to be "green" by bringing together a wide array of environmentally-sound products.

They sell all sorts of green products, from composting bins for your kitchen to all-natural bath products. They even carry fair trade gifts - now including One Mango Tree! You can buy the One Mango Tree product line at Greener Country's online store, or in their shop in NY.
