One of my favorite stops in Encinitas this afternoon was the Ecotopiia store located at 543 S. Coast Hwy 101. I stopped in more out of curiosity than anything else– I was not planning to buy anything. To my surprise and delight I found hand painted greeting cards, soothing natural lotions and eco-friendly cleaning supplies. There is a station in the back of the store where you can actually refill your existing containers w/ product– this is awesome and earth-friendly! This store has a little bit of everything– cute fur-lined jackets, yoga pants, water bottles. They also had this little kit with fork/knife/spoon/chopsticks that would be great to carry around in a backpack for eating on the run.
A pleasant side note– the person who assisted me with my purchase was interesting and chatty.
The best thing I found– and purchased– was a set of Indra Chopsticks in a blue Hemp holder for $5.50.
