Maybe since you've still got the do-good Earth Day attitude in your system you should run with it and mark your calendar for a local eco-friendly shopping initiative with four like-minded boutiques. This May, Chicago-based Little Bits of Green is teaming up with 4 Chicago eco-boutiques for an entire month of green giveaways and in-store/online shopping discounts. The event, coined "Shop 'til you Turn Green" starts May 1 and features stores like Em Bo, Mata Traders and Green Genes. Keep your eyes peeled on Little Bits of Green's Facebook and their site for product features, and how to reap the benefits of going green. [Racked Inbox]
