Earth Friendly Stores
On Santana Row, we are lucky to have multiple stores that are dedicated to bettering our planet. Some of our stores use only earth friendly materials when making their products, while other stores have incorporated clothing lines or practices that support the environment.
Santana Row’s newest store, Clary Sage Organics, is a store all about being green and educating its customers on the environmental impacts of what they purchase. The store centers around Clary Sage Organics clothing line, which is made from only sustainable and/or recycled textiles, such as a material that is created from a minimum of 6% recycled water bottles! There are other clothing lines in the store as well, such as Eden and Transit, which are also made solely from responsible materials. Clary Sage also features a “lotions + potions” section of the store, which has locally made organic supplements and face and body products. We are very pleased to have them as a part of the Santana Row family, and we stop by their store soon!
Another Santana Row store that is committed to being cruelty free (to both the earth and to animals) is 100% Pure Cosmetics. This cosmetic line is amazing because when they say they are 100% pure, they mean it! There are never any chemicals, toxins, preservatives, or unnatural ingredients in any of their products. Instead, when reading the ingredients lists, you see the names of fruits, vegetables, and other plants. The best part about this store is that their products actually work! Stop by their Santana Row location and let yourself be wowed by what they have to offer!
100% Pure: “FRUIT PIGMENTED PRETTY NAKED PALETTE” - $35.00
H&M has recently released a new clothing line called their “Conscious Collection”. These clothes are all made from organic materials, such as organic cotton, polyester made from recycled PET bottles, and Tencel, a material that recycles all chemicals required in production. This new line is inexpensive, adorable, earth-conscious, and available at H&M Santana Row! Here are a few pieces from the collection:
H&M: “Conscious Collection Dress” - $19.95
H&M: “Conscious Collection Blazer” - $49.95
H&M: ”Conscious Collection Shorts” - $24.95
Many of Santana Row’s restaurants offer vegetarian and even vegan options, but if you are a meat lover, a great way to support the environment while eating meat is by eating free range, organic meat. At Rosie McCann’s, they understand the importance of this. All of the beef at their restaurant is free-range, grass fed beef (and all of their vegetables are organic)! By making this a staple on their menu, this Santana Row restaurant has proven their commitment to the environment.
There are many ways to be friendly to the earth while shopping and dining at Santana Row. Reusable bags and coffee mugs are a great place to start, but see if you can take it a step further! Ask what sustainable options stores offer while shopping to minimize your impact on the environment. Remember: if you take care of the earth, the earth will be able to take care of us!
