Take a quick peak into Constellation & Co's Pioneer Square, letterpress studio with our Q&A with founder Sara McNally.
As our twitter followers may remember, NuBe Green attended (and live tweeted) the GoGreen conference last month. The conference provided an opportunity for businesses and government officials in Seattle to get together and discuss,debate and educate each other on issues of sustainability and green business practices.
From food production to transportation and building maintenance, the conference’s keynote speakers covered a diverse array of topics, all addressing the need for businesses and governments to commit to making sustainability a priority.
Most of our customers know that NuBe Green's mission is to find unique, hand-crafted products that are U.S made and sourced and sustainable. Sustainability is an integral part of NuBe's identity, but as speaker after speaker used the word, I began to wonder: what does "sustainability" really mean?
The news is too good to stay local: U.S. production and hands-on shopping strengthens our communities! This summer, NuBe Green is reducing its footprint with a fresh brick-and-mortar space and taking its mission to the streets in a mobile store.

If we were to sum up our reasoning for creating NuBe Green in one real-world example, it could easily be the story of the mass-production of cheap cashmere goods, consumed like candy in the US around the holidays. Over-consumption of foreign goods is punishing the environment and workers' livelihoods around the planet.
