Envirosax reusable shopping bags
As many of us are now searching for a few finishing touches to our holiday shopping, I thought I’d add a few suggestions from our local reserve. Check back for coverage of our favorite local boutiques and the places we’ll be shopping this holiday.
Since it opened in mid 2006, Regeneration has been a staple in Eagle Rock (Los Angeles). This boutique was focusing on eco-friendly goods at a time when many contested the validity of global warming. “What really makes the store work is that most people find things that they really want, and the eco-friendly aspect is a bonus. There’s also so many items that have a story behind them. Customers have said it’s like browsing in a museum. I really like that aspect, and look for interesting things, particularly items that aren’t mass produced,” says Owner Kelly Witmer.
Regeneration is a one of a kind find for those of us who love to give truly unique gifts and maintain a low impact. Gifts we’ll be giving from Regeneration: Envirosax reusable shopping bags, Sunprint Kits (especially for kids), and San Lorenzo recycled leather bags made from a combination of pulverized leather and vinyl. Also among my faves are their artisan jewelry pieces and porcelain and recycled glass items. Be sure to check out their online store and Etsy shop.
Regeneration is located at
1649 colorado blvd.
