6 Awesome Eco-Friendly Products!

With Earth Day just around the corner...

April 22, 2010
I decided to blog about cute products that can help one be more eco-friendly. Without further adieu here are my picks:'s colorful bracelet and necklaces are made from RECYCLED paper! BeadforLife purchases also give back to those less fortunate. Ugandan women hand make the beads and the profits provide sustainable income for them to support themselves and their families.

There is absolutely no way you can say a brown paper bag is cuter than Vera Bradley's pretty lunch totes! Oh and I'm pretty sure trees will thank you for not wasting them to carry your lunch to school or work everyday. :)

Eco-friendly stationary products like this adorable notebook! Besides being made of recycled materials the other thing that makes this little guy awesome is that I rescued him from the CLEARANCE section of Target!!! I probably need another notebook like I need a hole in the head, but it was only $1.74 and there was no way I could leave the store without it. I'll admit I was sucked in by the adorable owl on the front cover! But really can you blame me?

I swear those talented people on Etsy come up with the cutest darn things. I recently found these cute reuse-able sandwich pockets in the shop Freckleduck. I know you are thinking cute but not practical. WRONG you are. The pouch is lined in nylon making it super easy to keep clean. The fact that they are only $6 makes me super tempted to buy one. I mean c'mon who wouldn't want to dress their sandwich up in style? And think of all those plastic bags you'd end up saving. :)

An eco-friendly home for your stash of makeup! This cosmetic bag from Alicia Silverstone's line for ecoTOOLS™ is just too cute for words. LOVE IT.

I just stumbled upon these GlassDharma glass straws when reading And Her Little Dog Too. Leslie is currently hosting a giveaway which ends Friday for a $25 dollar gift certificate to buy your very own eco-friendly straws! Seriously before tonight I wasn't even aware such a thing as glass straws existed!

See how fun being eco-friendly is? :)
