The Green Committee interviewed Julie Novak Stafford, Owner. Verde is Italian for "green." All the products that Julie offers have an earth-friendly quality to them. Examples include: art produced on recycled canvas, furniture made from recycled materials, antiques that are reused furniture, and linens made from bamboo. "Thank you" cards and paper bags for purchases made from recycled and recyclable paper and embedded with wildflower seeds. Instead of throwing the card in the trash, you can bury it your backyard. The card will bio-degrade and flowers will sprout. Paints used on the walls were non volatile paints. All the art, photography, ceramics and jewelry come from local artists and have a nature theme.
