Philadelphia, PA-NJ - Launched in 2013, Tomato Envy provides readers with timely information and how-to articles in the areas of cooking, vegetable and perennial gardening, local food, and green living. The products featured in the online shop are all made in the United States and reflect the company's commitment to supporting small business, local artisans, and sustainably-produced goods.
"My vision with the online store is to help our readers create their own 'deliberately decadent' lifestyle through products that are beautiful, functional, and support green living," says Brande Plotnick, from the Tomato Envy gardens in Ambler, Pennsylvania, "Plus, it was important to me to support environmentally-friendly products that are made in the U.S."
The store began with an innovative home vermicomposting system from Nature's Footprint, a Seattle-area company that markets products for gardening and green living. Since then, a wider range of home goods for kitchen and garden have been added, all created by small-scale producers using sustainable processes.
"I'm so excited about the Tomato Envy shop because these products really bring the how-to content on the site to life and these are products I'm proud to use in my own home," Plotnick says. Plotnick has plans to expand the Tomato Envy line over the course of the next year.
