These days, retailers are finding that green might be the most flattering trend out there. And while many local businesses have long incorporated sustainability into their corporate DNA, some are taking things a step further.
Companies such as women’s clothier Eileen Fisher, furniture seller ABC Home and food maker Greyston Bakery are imbuing their operating practices with ever deeper shades of green. ABC, for example, is sharing the environmental origins of products with shoppers. Eileen Fisher is considering opening an apparel-making factory stateside, and Greyston is installing solar panels to help bake its brownies.
