Earth Day at UrbanOutfitters
UrbanOutfitter employees have it good. On Earth Day, they hosted a Green Bazaar at their gorgeous Navy Yard headquarters, and we were invited to set up shop. Quirky green vendors (organic nail salon?) and eco-chic abounded, but I was most impressed by the sustainable carry-out options that Urban's two well-trafficked cafes had on hand - for a price, of course (this is retail). The most practical items were reusable ceramic coffee mugs that look like paper cups, steel water bottles and celadon plastic take-out containers. I couldn't resist getting one to tote my golden beet and yellow asparagus salad in.
