  • Going Green!

    We have set up this blog to review and promote the best green products that we come across.

    Some of the posts will be articles and reviews related to eco suppliers and products sold on the Green Emporium website and we will use these pages to give more information and tips than there is space for on the website.

    Other posts will be about things that are not on our website but will be green, eco or ethically produced products or services that we are impressed with or articles related to environmental issues, conservation and the natural world that we want to share.
