Living Green from the Inside Out


>>  GONE GREEN: The Main Line’s only eco-friendly interior-design showroom has made its home in Wayne. With Renewable Sustainable Environments, interior designer Lynne Templeton set out to create a space where clients can experience products for themselves. RSE features everything from plumbing fixtures and appliances to lighting and fabrics. “I’m here for those interested in buying green materials for their home,” says Templeton. “But I’m also here for people who are looking for something different—not something you’d find at your traditional big-box home store. That it’s also a sustainable product is a bonus to those buyers.” 134 N. Wayne Ave., Suite 104, Wayne, (484) 319-5249, www.renewalse.com.

>>  GARDEN PARTY: Get a scaled-down version of the splendor of the Philadelphia Flower Show at the fourth annual Pennsylvania Horticultural Society’s Pop Up Garden. The group has transformed a lot at 15th and South streets in Philadelphia into a beautifully landscaped community-hangout space using elements from the Flower Show, plus palm trees, hammocks and more. 

Around until October, the beer-garden concept has a variety of craft brews, samplings from area food trucks and noshes from the popular Jamaican Jerk Hut, located next door.
