The Green Gift Shop is back!  We missed having an in-person event the past 2 years but now we are ready to offer greener holiday shopping at the newly renovated Carmel Clay Public Library.  Join us for a green holiday shopping experience where we offer gift ideas that are local, organic, natural, recycled, reused, repurposed and eco-friendly.

VENDORS: If you would like to participate in the Green Gift Shop and have a product or service that meets the criteria above, please go to the vendor information for more details or email mzalon@carmelgreen.org.   

Also, Carmel Clay Public Library will hold their Holiday Showcase.  Did you know the Carmel Clay Public Library has hundreds of books and audiobooks filled with heartwarming holiday stories, money-saving ways to spruce up your holidays, simple to elaborate crafts for gifts, and mouthwatering recipes? Our Audiovisual Department has holiday classic movies and new releases, as well as CDs from your favorite artists. And for those hard to please teens, the library carries the latest graphic novels and most popular fiction. Don’t have a library card? No worries, we will help you register. Just bring your current ID and take home the best holiday gift you could give yourself, a new library card. There will be a craft for teens and children to make and take home and holiday music performed by Carmel High School musicians. Come and meet some of the dedicated library staff and learn more about one of the greatest assets available to you in Carmel, your library!

Essentially Mara

Clean and simple products for the modern home.

I started making products for my family at home over four years ago. I wanted non-toxic and clean products that I could trust. I started sharing the products and recipes with family and friends and everyone LOVED them! After selling them here and there online and by word of mouth, Essentially Mara was created. When you get these products into your home I hope you love them as much as I do, and enjoy these wonderful items with clean ingredients.
