“I wanted to build a platform for environmentally sustainable businesses to sell their products. A place where customers can meet and learn from concerned business owners about how to live a more eco-conscious lifestyle that reduces pollution and protects our planet,” said Alessandra Payne, owner of Salvage & Shine, an eco-conscious wearable art jewelry business.
“After speaking with Alessandra about her vision, I was so excited to be a part of the Eco-Conscious Retail Oasis planning team. This experience has taught me that there are so many other eco-conscious businesses in the Capital Region. I think it’s wonderful that we are creating an Eco-Conscious Event for these eco-conscious businesses to promote their products,” said Jordon Egelston, owner of Uniquely Jordon Boutique, an eco-conscious apparel business.
