Hey, just so you know, the Blue Ridge Eco-Shop on the DTM is offering a 25 percent discount on everything in the store through Mother’s Day. So head on down there and get Mom a belt made out of a recycled bicycle tube, or maybe a bamboo composting bucket!
The owners, Paige and Hakon Mattson (pictured left), developed the store’s concept while in the Peace Corps. After working on a sustainable eco-farm in Costa Rica, they decided they wanted to share their passion for the environment and make being ‘green’ accessible and affordable to the everyday consumer.
