The NY Times ran a review of Whole Foods West Hollywood Lifestyle Store at the weekend. Situated on the corner of Fairfax and Santa Monica Blvd, the store stocks hundreds of earth-friendly items of clothing and accessories like scarves and handbags.

Arriving customers at the new store pass bamboo grasses and burbling fountains to be greeted by a mannequin seated in the lotus position wearing yoga clothes. Here you might buy a belt made from recycled pop-can tops ($29.99), an Ecobaby onesie shaped like a red pepper (organic cotton, $33.99) or a gray halter dress by Under the Canopy, the Banana Republic of eco-friendly fashion ($72). There are thick glass dishes (recycled, $14.99 to $54.99), 250 thread-count Gaiam sheets (organic cotton, $60), yoga bags made from discarded vinyl billboards ($63.99) and a display of T-shirts from American Apparel. Even the wicker chair in the corner is for sale ($299), along with a $1,999 table made from reclaimed wood.
