Avid shoppers can now discover new cool products and get product recommendations from some of today's most popular figures on OpenSky.com, a new social shopping platform where consumers can shop for products in four categories: Food, Style & Beauty, Healthy Living, and Home & Design. The unique thing about OpenSky is that shoppers can get product recommendations from experts in their particular areas of interest.
The site brings together authors, stylists, chefs and other celebrities as curators. Shoppers select the curators that most share their interests and passions and soon, they will begin to receive weekly notifications from each expert about new products at special prices.
Among the group of curators, OpenSky features green trendsetters interested in taking care of our planet and helping consumers make sustainable and healthy shopping choices. One of our favorites is Alicia Silverstone, actress and author of The Kind Diet, a book on the benefits of a vegan diet. She believes that happiness can be found by leading "a kind life" which basically entails healthy sustainable living.

"I discover something new almost every day that makes living a kind life that much more fun and beautiful," Silverstone said in a prepared statement, "With OpenSky I can share each of my discoveries big and small, edible or wearable, directly with the people who feel as passionately about this as I do and make it easier for them to live a kind life too."
