I remain baffled that eco-friendly stores require an intensive search. Perhaps more consumers need to remember to thank the management for carrying products that are non- or minimally damaging to the Earth. The smaller carbon footprint, the better. When visiting Nevada’s State Capitol, Carson City, or touring historic Genoa, stop to shop and visit the following establishments, proud to be known as friends of the Earth,
