What Do You Look for in a Green Store?  

My friend and I recently launched a webstore with the intention of offering eco-friendly, US-made products anyone (not just us treehuggers) would love to own.

We're shipping with 100% reused/recycled packaging, we're ONLY buying from US manufacturers, and we're sticking to safe, natural materials like cotton, sustainably harvested wood and ceramic. 

We're in the process of starting a non-profit that we can support with store sales, but in the meantime - what else would you suggest we do, or talk about on our site that would make you feel comfortable as a consumer that your money is going to support small business, local artisens and US manufacturing?

We'd love your feedback!

1. Should we post more information about the vendors we work with? [required]
Yes, that would give me insight to who I'm supporting with my money.
No, knowing that they're US manufacturers and artisans is enough for me.
2. Do you feel like we give enough information/the important information on the product description pages? [required]
3. If we made videos about each product, would you watch them? [required]
Yes, probably.
No, probably not.
