Heating one's home with hundreds of microwaves hotwired to a running Hummer may provide the perfect temperature for practicing hot yoga, but it also stomps a Galactus-sized carbon footprint in our planet’s fragile topsoil. Offset such natural-resource-taxing practices with today’s Groupon. For $10, you get $25 worth of eco-friendly products at Amazing Green Planet, located in the Westport Village shopping center.
At Amazing Green Planet, customers can tickle Mother Nature until she slaps them thanks to a wide selection of products made from sustainable materials that cover pretty much every aspect of day-to-day upkeep. By purchasing fair-trade and reusable goods that erase carbon footprints like a desert wind, you can improve your own quality of life while setting a good example for any neighbors whose trash bins habitually overflow with disposable penguins. Purge your home of harmful toxins with safe cleaning supplies such as the Planet dish liquid ($4.99), Harmony bathroom cleaner ($6.99), and a bamboo cloth ($3.95). Liberate your body from similarly agitating chemicals with kids' foaming hand wash ($7.95), spearmint shower gel ($2.99), or age-reversal eye cream ($24.99).

Moving into a cable-hoisted tent high in the jungle canopy is admirable, but it wrecks havoc on the daily commute to work. Become a veritable elemental warrior with today's Groupon to Amazing Green Planet, and impress your friends when Captain Planet materializes out of your fair-trade salsa at your next pot-luck dinner party.

Amazing Green Planet
Mary and Randy Baron cultivated their entrepreneurial spirit by transforming Baron Barclay Bridge Supplies from a mail-order home business into a large supplier of all things related to the game of bridge. After 30 years of expanding that company, they enlisted the help of their son Dustin to begin a new venture designed to nourish the culture of eco-awareness and sustainability in their hometown of Louisville. That idea eventually became Amazing Green Planet, which stocks locally made gifts and fair-trade products including earrings, soaps, and candles. Compost pails, reusable bags, and water-saving showerheads also help increase efficiency around the home and lessen the strain on the planet without forcing it to wear a lumbar belt around its equator.
