There are a bunch of business in Echo Park that offer eco-friendly goods and services. Here are just a few:
- E.P.I.C (Echo Park Independent Co-op) sells locally-made fashions and one of it’s co-founders, Rhianon Jones, is a huge supporter of eco-fashion.
- Warwick on Sunset is all about recycling household items and re-styling vintage clothing.
- Tavin boutique offers vintage collectibles and new local eco-designs. And through the end of the month, they’re offering free shipping on all Etsy orders.
- Feeding Birds Boutique is a vintage store in Echo Park that carries unique clothing (including organic tees), accessories and decorative objects.
- This week at Vons, they’ll deliver your groceries for free if you buy five earth-friendly products online.
- Masa uses lots of organic, local produce in their foods, and they’ve started to use eco-friendly packaging and doing away with plastic bags for take out (unless you’re desperate).
- The Echo Park Time Bank conserves energy in a very unique way: by getting rid of the middle man and the use of currency.
- Aisling Walsh is the Maid on a Moped. She’s got both an online local vintage store and she offers eco-friendly cleaning services.
- The Echo Park Film Center has an eco-friendly option for film education – the Echo Park Film Mobile is an old school bus transformed into an eco-friendly mobile cinema and educational facility, providing free documentary film screenings and filmmaking workshops in non-traditional venues.
- Delilah’s Bakery recycles all of their food waste through a Los Angeles-based company called Athens Waste Management. The company also supplies Delilah’s with its compostable packaging for take-away orders, and offers an oil waste collection service as well.
