Looking for more ways to buy locally? Being green just got a little bit easier, thanks to Sound Trading Co., Seattle's first online eco-store and gift registry. Every item and service sold on their website is locally made, locally transported and created using the "best practices for a healthy world.
Co-founders Lilah Steece and Harrison Neel got the idea for Sound Trading Co. during one very wedding-heavy summer when they realized that friends had few alternatives to registering with chain stores for mass-produced items that were usually shipped from far away. Sound Trading Co. was conceived as a way to give residents of the Puget Sound area easy access to locally made, environmentally conscious products and services from area artists, businesses and nonprofits.
Customers can set up wedding and baby registries through the Sound Trading Co. website, or simply buy individual gifts and services for specific occasions. Read on in NWsource.
