Inspired by the Spanish translation of "green footprint" (huella verdé), WellaVerdé (wella-VAIR-day) was founded in 2010 in by two friends who shared a passion for both the environment and living well. They believed that each of us could reduce our carbon footprint while still enjoying the finer things in life, and so created WellaVerde to offer unique, eco-friendly products with style.
Our goal is to support sustainable projects, organizations and initiatives throughout the community, while educating consumers on ways to live well and leave a green footprint.
