Verdes y Colores is the type of multi-faceted store in Costa Rica whose ingenious design keeps customers coming back and chattering among their friends. Located mere minutes from San Jose Airport, the retailer is part-museum, part-vendor and focuses on popularizing sustainable design with its informative tours.

Although walk-ins are certainly welcome to browse the store’s collection of souvenirs and clothing ensembles, the strength of Verdes y Colores lies in its organized tours, which inform customers about responsible buying, sustainable design and fair trade practices. Considering Costa Rica’s position as a world leader in sustainable tourism, it’s unsurprising that founder and designer Melissa Jimenez forwards considerable money to local artisans and craftsmen so that they may continue practicing the skills that Verdes y Colores so diligently tries to protect.
