Eco-Tote Wedding Favor

Are you thinking of going green for your wedding? Do you want to leave a smaller carbon footprint, but keep from compromising on the things that are important to you on your wedding day? By paying attention to the little things that make the day memorable, you can keep the consumption and decadence to a minimum. Here are a few ideas to make your day as eco-friendly as you want it to be!

  1. Donate leftover food instead of having it thrown out
  2. Give your guests the option of donating to charities instead of giving gifts
  3. Choose eco-friendly wedding favors or eco-friendly wedding accessories
  4. Give each other eco-friendly wedding rings. Visit www.greenkarat.com for details
  5. Use recycled paper for your invitations
  6. Choose organic hair, skin and make up products
  7. Find a florist that uses flowers from organic farms
  8. Learn how to donate your wedding dress through charity from the I Do Foundation
  9. Consider an outdoor wedding
  10. Have your bartender set out carafes of water instead of handing out bottled water

Introducing Ingenious Fold n’ Play Recycled Speakers

Monday, April 19th, 2010

We saw these ingenious Fold n’ Play Recycled Speakers by OrigAudio and we knew you’d want to know about them too! They are a first of their kind, made from recycled materials, self powered, portable, and start flat and fold together like origami. They come in 6 cool designs too. Because these speakers require zero external power, they are Mother Nature approved, a perfect gift for the eco-friendly minded or a creative gift idea for the people you know who have everything! These portable speakers are perfect for the beach, office, camping, dorm and almost anywhere else.  The Fold n’ Play speakers are the kind of item that make us wonder “why didn’t we think of that?”, but we’re excited we are able to offer them to you now!

Spotlight on New Vendor: Domestic Aesthetic

Tuesday, April 6th, 2010

We are excited to be offering products from Domestic Aesthetic! Founded by Diane Ruengsorn, who’s ideas were born from her experience in the furniture industry. She witnessed chemicals and materials that the workers were exposed to daily. Many of the substances are known to cause cancer or other chronic health conditions.  This led her to believe that products could be produced without hurting people in the process. “Live well, live right” is the company’s philosophy and they seem to be doing just that! Their products are handmade with reclaimed wood, and eco-friendly processes. We are currently offering the Reclaimed Wood Spice Block and Reclaimed Wood Salt & Pepper Shakers and plan to have the Bamboo Sushi Tray available by the end of the month. All are fabulous gifts for the eco-friendly minded people in your life…or those who aren’t…we won’t tell!
