Let's see what Minna says of her sustainable commitment!
How was your business born, and why did you decide to start an eco-friendly activity?
I am an artist who has always been interested in earth friendly activities, in fact started in university as an environmentalist major. I became aware that science was not my strong suit, but I could still through art and craft become an advocate. All the items in my store are either locally made, with organic ingredients; or fair trade certified. I believe in packaging which is recycled and always promote earth friendly activities to customers by talking about the rain barrel I had installed, or the down spout planter outside the store. I was born in Finland and love of nature seems inherent in all I do.
What is the most beautiful thing your customers tell you?
I think it is great to hear that they have learned something about being responsible guardians of the earth.
Describe eco-sustainability according to you, in 5 words:
Thoughtful responsible management of resources.
