I’m psyched to finally be seeing some pictures of Colin Firth’s new green store, ECO, that we’ve been hearing about for so many months. Located in Chiswick, England — the business venture is the result of a partnership between the actor, his Italian film-maker wife, Livia, her brother Nicola Giuggioli (an expert in areas of sustainability), and a financier and entrepreneur named Ivo Coulson

That’s quite a team of people, but so far I’m really enjoying what they’ve put together. As one might expect, it’s not just the products that are green. Almost everything about the building in Chiswick is also drenched in eco-goodness. For instance — the upper-level is a dream for gardeners, featuring a wraparound vertical garden, solar panels, and water pumps. Inside, the building contains limecrete and recycled wood flooring, recycled furnishings (the counter is made of rubber bicycle tires) and a greywater lavatory.

If vegan parents don’t “force” their vegan values and beliefs on their children, society won’t hesitate to “force” standard American values instead.
