A group of young eco-friendly entrepreneurs have taken over a Rice Village landmark—Wagner Hardware—and made it into Houston's center for "green" living. The new store offers a wide range of eco-friendly products, from reclaimed wood flooring and non-toxic, odor-free paint to chemical free laundry detergent and cleaning supplies. Experts offer advice to anyone looking for ways to live a more environmentally responsible way in a way that doesn't empty their wallets. It can be as simple as buying an organic pillow. You have to start somewhere.
