In light of Earth Day (Really, April seems to be more of an Earth Month) and this week's post consisting of Eco friendly tips from our 'green' pals, we thought it would be a great time to feature seven of our green Grommets that are great to give! So, if you need a green gift idea, we've got you covered!
All Art, No Waste Blue Moon Bottles, now six years old, creates handheld works of art from reclaimed wine bottles. Sherri’s drinking glasses and vases are made from bottles that vary in color, size and shape, but all catch the light beautifully. (Starting at $25) Buy Blue Moon Bottles' recycled glass tumblers here.
Cosmetic Order. UNII Cosmetics Imagine being able to replace a bunch of different makeup compacts with a single palette that holds all your favorite colors and brands. Now imagine one generous-size mirror instead of a handful of impractically small mirrored cases cluttering up your cosmetics bag. That's what UNII cosmetics are all about. ($29.00) Buy UNII Palette's magnetic makeup and eyeshadow compact here.
Simple Espresso. The Handpresso Wild Domepod The is a hand-held espresso maker that requires only ground coffee, hot water and a few hand pumps to create the perfect cup at home, in the office and anywhere else you can think of. ($9.99 - $120.00) Buy the Handpresso Wild Domepod small portable espresso machine here.
Fair Play.Fair Trade Sports is the first U.S. sports equipment maker to launch a line of eco-certified balls that are built by adult workers who are guaranteed healthy working conditions and fair wages. (Starting at $29.95) Buy Fair Trade Sports soccer balls, basketballs, footballs and volleyballs here.
All Fired Up. What sets these Anywhere Fireplace fireplaces apart is how easily (and affordably) they can create the perfect mood for a romantic evening, a gathering of friends, or unwinding after a long day. If you’ve always coveted a fireplace but lack a chimney, this is an elegant, eco-friendly alternative that’s all ambiance, and no fuss. ($149.95 and up) Buy a contemporary stainless steel wall mount or pit Anywhere Fireplace here.
Ready To Rock. Unlike standard-issue plastic earbuds, ThinkSound's in-ear headphones are made with real lychee wood, which creates a rich, crisp tone and a more natural resonance. ($49.95 and up) Buy ThinkSound's wood earbuds here.
The Finnish Secret. These 70% linen, 30% organic cotton “friction” towels are a specialty of Jokipiin Pellava, a 90-year-old textile business. They are designed to dry you off quickly (linen is much more absorbent than cotton), while sloughing off dead skin cells and increasing circulation. (Starting at $21.00) Buy Jokipiin Pellava's linen luxury bath towels here.
