There are green salons, green clothing lines, even green party-planning companies. So why not a green pet store? You'd think that Crazy For Animals, New York City's first eco-friendly pet shop, would be opening in the West Village or the Meatpacking District, but instead, it's located in mall in Glendale, Queens. The store, which is already up and running in The Shops at Atlas Park, will be undergoing its transition into earth-friendliness when it moves into a larger space this fall. Crazy For Animals' new home will be fitted with bamboo floors and energy-efficient lighting and will stock holistic pet food and spa products. You know, only the necessities.
