Laura Meyer, founder and CEO of the Ultimate Green Store, never expected to go into the retail business. With a background in law and a book about home improvement under her belt, Meyer became inspired to make a life change after her three sons began to suffer from respiratory illnesses. Researching all of the toxicity in her day-to-day life and making the appropriate changes helped Meyer’s sons recover, but also sparked a new passion for this budding ecopreneur. Today, the Ultimate Green Store is one of the leading green retailers online. And it’s easy to see why — the selection alone is truly astonishing, with products ranging from organic clothing for adults and babies, to office supplies and pet accessories and everything in between. Even green cleaning and dry cleaning products are available in the store — items that Meyer is extra passionate about championing. “‘Clean and green’ is a huge step in having a healthy home,” Meyer says. “It all boils down to the chemicals that we bring into our homes.”
