    If you're going to shop, find New York City stores that are eco-friendly.

    • Social shopping network StoreAdore serves up list of fashionable boutiques in the city (and across the country, too) that stock products with an eye towards sustainability and environmentally-friendly living.
    • NYMag's Shop-a-Matic devotes a whole section to eco-focused products -- from tees to shoes to tableware -- that give you a dose of retail therapy without the footprint guilt.
    • Greenopia is one of the most comprehensive resources around for tracking down businesses that specialize in things like gourmet edibles, beauty products, and home goods. (And they don't just cover NYC - Greenopia is in LA and SF right now, and has plans to expand to dozens of other cities.)
