How It All Started
For Connie Citarelli, the owner of the Green Box Boutique and a Woodstock resident, being “green” isn’t a trend — it’s a long-term lifestyle. Connie and her family became interested in protecting the environment in the 1970s. Starting simply with an organic herbal garden, Connie soon became an advocate for toxin-free clothing for children, steadily growing green living into an everyday way of life.
When Connie decided to take a new professional path a few years ago, beginning a green business was a natural step. In November 2009, she opened the doors to the Green Box Boutique in historic downtown Woodstock, Illinois.
Green Box Boutique gives Connie the opportunity to share her passion and knowledge for eco-friendly living while helping families live healthier lives.
