About: Former Manhattanites Joanna Black and Matt Garrison left the city for the mellow life in Woodstock and launched Hip E Living in 2007. Dedicated to the environmental movement, they created the store -- the E in the name stands for eco -- to offer hip, yet high-quality eco-friendly products. The store itself is constructed largely of sustainable or recycled materials, and they sell well-designed products -- some one-of-a-kind, ranging from recycled glass dinner plates to natural-fiber clothing and organic chocolates. Hip E Living also stocks a selection of natural laundry detergents and skin products. And did you ever see a bottle opener made from a recycled bike chain? How about a solar backpack that provides up to four watts of solar power to charge handheld electronic gear? Hip E Living has 'em.
