    The Project: “Ak Kuxtal Sian Ka’an,” (Kuxtal—Maya—that which gives us life; pronounced kush-tol), is a network of artisans established to counter the systemically low value, low wages, and low expectations of and by artisans and simultaneously promote environmental stewardship by fostering an economically, culturally, socially, and environmentally sustainable craft industry. Specifically, Kuxtal, as a socially and environmentally committed business, would promote this new, equitable concept. As a grassroots organization, Kuxtal was established in 2008 as a collaborative initiative between two local conservation NGOs—Amigos de Sian Ka’an (Amigos) and U’yo’olche—and a small group of diverse, skilled, and experienced artisans living in close proximity to the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve. Since people in Amigos and U’yo’olche worked closely with local artisans prior to the inception of the Kuxtal project, the needs that emerged from these cumulative interactions inspired this project.

    2. Green Apple – Based on the United Kingdom, the green apple website is also a good place to shop for eco products. Their cute and friendly interface is an attractive feature, while they sport a huge variety of categories for green products.

    Clothes – What you wear isn't really what people first think about when they want to shop green. Mostly people would think it is about wood, paper and environmentally friendly gadgets and cars. However clothes have a bid impact too on the environment. That is why there are clothes manufacturers out there that make their tshirts and dresses from 100% organic material. Here's our pick:

    1. Miss Voltage – This interesting store has a lot of nice and trendy designs for an eco clothes shop. Unlike the others we've seen that are more on th...
