Green Buddha Life Sustainability Center & Gallery Opens

Green Buddha Life encompasses many things at 205 W. Galena Blvd. It’s a book recycling center (they resell used books online – not in the store), it’s a sustainability center (environmentally-focused groups are welcome to use the space), it’s an eco-arts gallery, and it’s a model of a well-planned and creatively, LEED-certified building in downtown Aurora. Owner Sylvia Washington recently welcomed guests at a June grand opening.

Green Buddha Life held its grand opening in June on World Environment Day.
