Loop De Loop Eco Emporium

Loop De Loop Eco Emporium

Description

Georgina traveled the world and brought it home to Ireland – all the premier products for an eco-conscious lifestyle. She buys from three main suppliers who source all over the world. Unfortunately, very little is produced in Ireland – yet. I spotted recycled paper from a Dublin-based company and Wildes Handmade Irish Chocolates new line of Organic bars.

Find fresh-baked rye, wheat, and spelt breads. An amazing selection of German-made, wooden-handled brushes with all natural bristles. Lots of bulk organic goods and teas. Upstairs is a boutique of fair trade goods, from Indian pillows to African feather dusters.

A café is due to open this summer, with bamboo wooden tables in an upstairs, sunlit room. It will serve fresh vegetarian wraps, homemade soups, cookies, and fresh breads, all made from local ingredients whenever possible. There is a juice bar downstairs and dainty green tables set on the sidewalk like lily pads. You know what they saw about frogs being the barometers of the ecological state of a region. This place is attracting a lot of them, including me.
