REVIEW: Hippy Shopper

Continuing our site review series we have taken a really good look at a brilliant recent addition to the Green web: Hippy Shopper

This site is wonderfully accessible, with subheadings acting as gateways to separate categories, including: Kids Stuff, Green Gadgets, Fashion, Travel and much more besides.

The site is an involving, fun read with explorations into bizarre green accessories such as wind-up and solar power mobile phone chargers and eco wedding rings (which, by the way, are stunning).

However, it’s not all about green products on this site; it is a fantastic access point to many other useful and informative links, including Guardian Chemical World, Grist (which had a great article by Ian Mcewan, discussing the effects of climate change), and a great vegan cakes site (bring on the coconut flapjack!) called Blue Lotus.

A real high point on the site is the fact that it takes the time to acknowledge those who are fighting the good fight, including a hats-off to Mike Skinner from the Streets for publicly proscribing KFC. And Vans for making vegan trainers for conscientious skaters that want to wear skate shoes, minus the suffering and waste involved in leather production.

This is certainly a useful site for young green minded people that want to know where they can find organic fashion. But it also useful for us oldies that want to know how to make our homes more energy efficient and where to buy naturally made clothes for our sproggs.

Hippy Shopper is a positive, highly readable blog, which succeeds in encouraging people to broaden their green horizons, experiment with new things and discover how easy it can be to take care of Mother Earth.

We give Hippy Shopper a City Hippy top rating of 5 stars!

Well done Hippy Shopper!
