Shop and Save

Smja07_gl_mallAn ecofriendly mall may seem oxymoronic, but Green Exchange won't be selling sweatshop-made fashions or contributing to sprawl. The shopping center, set to open next year in a renovated lamp factory on Chicago's North Side, will feature an organic cafe, stores carrying sustainable clothing and building supplies, and dozens of other like-minded tenants. And malls aren't the only consumer icons getting a green sheen: A new credit card racks up carbon offsets with every purchase, while YoNaturals stocks vending machines with dried fruit, yogurt, and organic snacks.
