Our Story:

GreenBeing’s journey from burlap handbags to burlap coffee sleeves / coffee koozies was founded in 2007 by creative entrepreneur, Cristin Powers. The company originated by upcycling burlap coffee bean bags & selling eco-friendly handbags at local cafes, arts & craft festivals, as well as online and in local boutiques.

In 2008 GreenBeing grew into a bricks-and-mortar shop located in Downtown Scranton, offering vintage clothing and home goods as well as all things locally handmade by various artists, crafters and designers.  

In 2012 the company closed the retail shop and moved the entire vintage and handmade business to the wonderful world wide web.  

You can now find GreenBeing and our eco-friendly burlap coffee sleeves online as well as at cafes and boutiques from Pennsylvania to California.
