Shop local, play local, live green & thrive! Our goal at RockvilleLiving.com is to help you find what you're looking for in and around Rockville, Maryland, and to promote an economically vibrant and environmentally sustainable community here. If you'd like to be part of this unique "local social media" effort, we welcome your support as an advertiser, and look forward to helping get the word out about the unique products, services and events at your business or non-profit organization.
Shopping at local retail stores makes sense not only because you can see and try things on, avoid shipping costs, talk to helpful salespeople, and reduce time spent on the road. In addition to being convenient, shopping at locally owned and independent stores is an investment in your community's future. For every dollar spent at a farmers market or locally-owned store, roughly half that amount is likely to be reinvested locally, as opposed to only 15 cents for dollars spent on products from large corporations. See our map of shopping, services, things to do and more in and around Rockville.

Living sustainably isn't just for "environmentalists". We all live on the same planet with finite resources, and make daily choices that affect everyone else — choices about what to buy, what to fix and what to get rid of, how to stay warm or cool, what to eat, how to get to the places we need to get to. The Greenpages is a place to get inspired and informed about local resources and opportunities available for greener living for everyone.
