to Kent, OH! I’m excited to share that I pursued and was offered a position at Kent State University – and I am SO happy to be here!
What does this mean for Eco-Chic in Suburbia? NADA! We are still in suburbia and will still be active in the Northeast Ohio area searching out green fun, earth-friendly deals, and pursuing a lifestyle that Mother Nature would be proud of.
Lucky Penny Farm (already know that I am going to buy my christmas present to myself from here!)
- I adore goat cheese!
- This charming local creamery has already been on PBS and given props from Goose Island Beer Company.

I can’t wait to try this place! Photos will be sure to follow. They also use Onesta products – certified by PETA (a very difficult certification to get).
We have already explored this gem in Downtown Kent and I found one of my favorite products (I will share in a later post). Like most natural food shops/co-ops, the prices seem startlingly high compared to, oh say, Wal-Mart. However, as I was checked out various items in the store (fair trade coffee, organic produce, baking items), I did see that many prices are very fair – especially to support 1. a local institution and 2. to put healthier and pure food in your belly. I will definitely be checking out the wholesale cleaning and personal care products on my next trip!
Its website states that they make as much food as possible from scratch – I can’t wait to see how true that is! Ever since Food Inc, I am more aware of the processed foods that I put in to my body. Eating on campus has made it difficult/impossible to avoid processed food so I am definitely looking forward to trying this gem!
I LOVE vintage clothes for many reasons – upcycling, stylish, and just uber cute. I mean to go every weekend but I haven’t made it yet…
Reviews will be posted as I explore these eco-chic gems in Kent! I am so excited to add these to my to-do list. Please let me know if you have another eco-chic spot to recommend!
