This month at Metro Hippie will be dedicated to companies based out of my home state of Minnesota… Many instantly think ‘isolated tundra’ or of that ridiculous Fargo movie (which is North Dakota people!).  I’m here to turn the ‘naysayers’ into ‘yaysayers’ by focusing on some incredible eco-efforts made possible by progressive minds within the land-of-10,000-lakes.

Topics will range from sustainable furniture, green landscaping and prefab construction to eco-treehouse resorts and LEED Platinum remodels… well alright!
