Welcome to Exploring Sustainability: Home and Garden!

      Kate and Olivia have created Living Green to showcase Karen Totino's business, Green Conscience and her influence on the Saratoga Springs Community. 


      After exploring the literary works of both John Muir and Rachel Carson, we decided to take our new found knowledge to explore how the Saratoga Springs community is making a green impact. We visited Karen in her Green Conscience store  located right off of Broadway, and sat down to discuss her business and her personal environmental concerns. We learned about her journey, her customer base, and what exactally goes into producing green home products.


On this website you can find a complete interview with Karen, and  information about many of the wonderful

items and furnishings that she carries, and how they can have a positive impact on the environment. You can also see her response as a modern-day environemntalist to the question we have been trying to tackle all year... can literature save the environment?


We hope you are as inspired as we are, to learn how innovation and creativity can come together to create results that are not only beautiful but meaningful.
