We were so excited to receive a personal invite to attend Laura Turner Seydel's third annual "Eco-Trunk Show" last Thursday, in celebration of "Earth Month!" The trunk show also included a tour of Eco Manor, the “Greenest House in the South,” which is also Laura's personal home. It's a beautifully crafted home and just like the owner, it's beautiful inside as it is outside!
A few pictures!
Me with Laura
One of the highlights of my visit, was a conversation that I had with her son, who came in during my visit. He had been out all day working on a volunteer school project to help clean up the Chattahoochee River. They picked up 40 bags of trash along the river! It was heart warming to hear and see the excitement in his eyes! Taking care of the earth and giving back is obviously a family affair.
It was a day of earth-friendly shopping with over 15 of Atlanta's premiere eco-friendly designers, artisans, and shopkeepers showcasing the latest green fashion, jewelry, home décor, beauty/skincare and children’s products on the market today.
The vendors pictured here are, top to bottom:
1. Kathleen Plate - Owner of SmartGlass
2. Lawton Ursrey - Owner of Indie Peace
3. Stacy Smith - Owner of Doddlebugz
You can visit all of the vendors and learn more about their Eco-friendly products! I couldn't feature all of them here, but I'd like to give them a shout!....
