San Carlos between Seventh and Eighth, Carmel
The coziest of homes flow with feng shui and good karma. The loyal customers of Eco Carmel get it: cruelty-free wool mattress toppers, recycled-plastic razors and toothbrushes, nontoxic pet toys and water-saving shower heads make a home’s beauty more than skin deep. The store is the creation of Kristi Reimers, a natural-health champ who painstakingly sources the products she sells. That even goes for the non-VOC paints, stains and plasters she used to remodel the store, as featured in Dwell magazine last summer. Need edible veggie chalk for your mouthy little artist?
