What is Sustainability Store?

Sustainability Store is a directory of the best resources in the world for advancing sustainability. When you support these businesses and organizations, you are helping create a sustainable future by expanding the market for sustainably produced products and services. John Aebi-Magee started Sustainability Store in 1999 with the goal of connecting leaders in sustainability with learners, customers, and decision makers. These connections create change.

Sustainability Store is a place where you can find fair trade clothing, organic health and beauty products, environmental gifts, non-toxic household goods, renewable energy suppliers, carbon offsetting services, sustainable building products, and much more. We also provide links to news and blogs on sustainability movements, green issues, recycling, energy efficiency, and climate change.

A Volunteer Effort

All listings are free. The site is produced as a volunteer effort with the help of individuals like yourself. Please consider getting involved by suggesting new listings that you think should be included in this directory. You can also help by reporting bad links or mentioning our site on your website or blog. We welcome all helpers.

The Sea Ranch, CA

Sustainability Store is based in our solar powered home at The Sea Ranch in Northern California. The Sea Ranch is an environmentally-planned community that is internationally known for its distinctive architecture, stewardship of the natural environment, and abundance of wildlife. The community has extensive common land, making up half of the 3500 acres. The Sea Ranch strongly enforces policies that protect natural beauty like limited home size, no permitter fencing, no lawns, no night lights, and native-only landscaping. The Sea Ranch founders were pioneers in community design. They believed that the design of buildings should be in harmony with the landscape and that the environmental setting is more important than the structures. The community has over 50 miles of spectacular hiking trails along the inspiring 9 mile coastline, through redwood forests, and across meadows grazed by deer and sheep.
