Los Angeles, land of sea, sun and sustainable living! There is no better city to take advantage of LA’s local, organic and eco-friendly habits, so here’s a sneak peak into my 2 day guide on how you can enjoy being Green in LA.

FOOD SHOPPING

Farmers Market:
I love Wednesday mornings in my neighborhood of Santa Monica because of the weekly, bustling Santa Monica Farmer’s Market. Here you’ll find fresh, seasonal California produce, as well as beautiful flowers and freshly brewed coffee. If you arrive early, you’re likely to rub shoulders with some of the best chefs in the city.

This place is heaven for the eco-conscious and health fanatic.

You’ll love it.

ACTIVITIES

Hiking & Surfing

We Angelenos are blessed with sun, sea and mountains. The best way to keep fit and healthy is to go for a hike with friends in one of the plentiful Canyons that LA has to offer. Walk your dog amongst the beautiful and fit at Runyon Canyon, or head west for incredible ocean and mountain views at Temescal Canyon.If you prefer the fresh ocean air to the mountains, then you must ride the waves, surfing in Malibu or Santa Monica.
