In a city that has become obsessed with the farm-to-table concept (whilst the Prius was becoming something other than just "that weird car from LA"), it's easier than ever to be more environmentally aware. Here, get the Atlanta scoop on one of the important aspects of going green: shopping! From hip modern furniture at Bed Down (pictured) to trendy t-shirts at American Apparel, 5 enjoyable ways to be just as good to mother nature as you are to yourself.

Bed Down is like if West Elm or Crate and Barrel was eco-friendly. Hip modern furniture, linens, sectionals and ottomans are all available green-style. Sadly, it costs a lot of money to go fashionably green, so bring the heavy plastic.
It's eco heaven! This emporium offers everything from furniture, kitchen and bath essentials, fashion and gift items to organic baby and pet products for greener living in Atlanta. Even purses made out of rubber from old tires--now THAT is eco-friendly!
Shopping isn't always limited to things you wear or badass interior decorations; sometimes we need food, too. For the eco-conscious who doesn't want to only hit farmers markets (and for who can afford it), Whole Foods is the organic grocer of choice.
