We are Julie and Benjamin, entrepreneurs from France. In the 4 years that we have been living in New York, we have discovered and enjoyed a host of wonderful local products. This is why we decided to create an eShop showcasing as many local USA products as we can, be it food or goods, with emphasis on Eco-friendly, Zero waste, and sustainability.
Elaia: 19 months, Jolie and happy baby
Adam: Our son, 11 years old, sharks enthusiast, homeschooler
Julie: Earth harmony living, chocolate lover
Benjamin: Flexitarian, tech whizz
Nuage and Fleur: Our 2 cats and rulers of the household.
During the Covid quarantine, Benjamin had the idea of completely harmonizing our way of life with our principles and values... And so within years, we hope to be able to live on a sailboat and travel on the ocean! Stay tuned!
What do we personally do for the environment?
- For 6 years we didn't jump into a plane.
- We don't have a car and prefer to rent one when we have no other option.
- Public transportation is our daily transportation method.
- In the bathroom, we use a lot of Eco-Friendly products (solid shampoo, bar soap,...), meaning, aerosol, and plastic bottles are not welcome anymore at home.
- In the kitchen, we cook organic products, recycle, and compost. We also buy local as much as possible.
- We bring our own tote bags when we do our shopping and say NO when we are offered a plastic bag.
- We wear eco-conscious and/or second-hand clothes
- We print less and decided to stop including "Packing Slips" in our packages.
- We also have a lot of second-hand toys and try to avoid plastic toys.
Closiist is an e-shop with a philosophy of promoting the local and sustainability. We curate our products carefully, looking into the history and the technologies of their producers to make sure they are in harmony with our ethical values.
