GREEN IN YEREVAN Though we are surrounded by autumn reds and golds in Yerevan right now, there are still some places where you can find green. Here are some organizations and shops that offer organic food and products in any season in and around Yerevan. One of the most eco-friendly companies working to provide fresh organic agricultural products is the Green Lane NGO, www.greenlane.am. Their mission statement reads, “We work to help farmers improve and sustain their businesses and to make our contribution to securing healthy and safe agriculture products for consumers!” Our Embassy Commissary works with Green Lane to provide organic products to our employees. A favorite green spot in Yerevan is The Green Bean Coffee Shop (thegreenbean.am). It opened only a couple of months ago but has already earned its place in the heart of many. 100 percent smoke free, featuring fresh baked goods, soups, and organic coffees and teas, they are not merely a coffee shop. They advertise, “Our beans are roasted fresh, and held in sealed containers until they are brewed fresh for you, our friends and customers.” Visit this beautiful café right in the center at Amiryan 10. The Green Day Organic Store (organicclub.am) is the best place for advocates of healthy food and organic products. The store was created by the USDA CARD Foundation. The products in this store include tea and coffee, desserts and chocolate, pasta, oils and dressings, cosmetics and cleaning supplies. Find this store at Azatutyan Ave 1/21, up the Cascade and behind Victory Park. If you are looking for fresh organic cosmetics, one of the most pleasant stores to visit is Fresh Line. The products include shampoos, face creams, masks, soaps, and other skin care products. The shop has also skin care products for babies. See their Facebook page for products http://www.facebook.com/FreshLineArmenia, and visit their store in Yerevan’s center at Moskovyan 28. HyeLandz Eco Village Resort (www.hyelandz.com) is a beautiful place outside Yerevan where you can enjoy a day or more in an ecologically friendly atmosphere. They describe the property, “Although all the houses are fully equipped with all the modern conveniences you'd expect for comfort and ease, you’ll find it much more interesting to spend the whole day outside, in the splendid surroundings of the resort. HyeLandz is a fantastic resort where you and your family can see a great variety of domestic animals, plants and trees. ” HyeLandz is located in Geghadir village.
