Bella

Apparently orGLAMic readers love their pets!  As a response to all your emails, I introduce you to Bella.  Bella makes pet beds and blankets that are eco-friendly without sacrificing style.  They are made out of hypoallergenic, Eco2 recycled cotton fiber, and the beds are stuffed with high loft fiberfill made from recycled PET.  The Bella Bed and Bella Binky won 2007 Pet Product News International Editors’ Choice Award and the 2007 Modern Dog Staff Picks Award, so orGLAMic is not alone in recognizing that these pet accessories are both green AND gorgeous enough to have lying around your orGLAMic home.  Check out all the color combos available, here.

Scrapile

Scrapile is the collaboration of two furniture designers that have developed a unique method of collecting and repurposing discarded scraps of wood from New York’s woodworking industry.  Because of the materials used, each item is unique in it’s coloring, which adds to the orGLAMic element.  I love the juxtaposition of the earthly materials and the sleek lines of the elegantly designed desk pictured above.  Available at several outposts nationwide, including the a-ma-zing ABC Carpet & Home, you can browse the entire line of one-of-a-kind products here

It has been absolutely sweltering here in Los Angeles, and I can honestly say (no pun intended) that the only thing that got me through the weekend were Honest Tea’s products.  While I haven’t tried a flavor I didn’t like, the Orange Mango Honest Ade (pictured above) is my absolute favorite.  All the company’s products are USDA certified organic, which is especially important when it comes to tea.  This is because unlike other products, such as fruits and vegetables, a tea leaf is never washed. The first time tea leaves touch water is when they are brewed moments before the tea is drunk. That means that any pesticides used in the growing process are likely to end up in your beverage, and ultimately in your body.  Check out the naturally low calorie, never too sweet, orGLAmic beverages by clicking here.

J Brand

Everybody’s favorite denim line has entered eco-friendly territory!  J Brand Green Label has a selection of denim made from 100% organic cotton, but without sacrificing the flattering cut and superb quality that  one expects from the infamous line.  And now, when you buy a pair of organic jeans from J Brand, you also get a free canvas tote to haul your purchases (remember – not just groceries!) home.  Personally, I’ve been living in dark wide-leg denim for the past year and am looking forward to lightening up a bit for summer- the perfect orGLAMic purchase.  To check out the entire J Brand Green Label line, click here.

My motto in life is that everything tastes better with chocolate or cheese (if you can think of something-other than cucumbers-that is an exception to that rule leave a comment and try to prove me wrong!)  and when you add Vere chocolate to the equation then you have found heaven.  Vere’s line of Certified 100% Organic Dark Chocolate Bars comes in an array of unique flavors such as Espresso+Anise, and Cayenne + Cacao (pictured above).  They are made from single origin organic Arriba cacao beans and organic raw cane sugar grown by members of the Maquita Cushunchic Foundation (which promotes fair and equitable trade), and have superior levels of antioxidants and polyphenols.  Enter the world of Vere Chocolates by clicking here.

Umbra

Design company Umbra is getting in on the green movement by adding a line of eco-friendly products to their selection.  They now carry products made of “corn” plastic, bamboo, and renewable plantation wood.  While it’s just a small start, if we support this latest venture there are sure to be more orGLAMic offerings with time.  The Aquala Bathtub Caddy pictured above relaxes me by just looking at it – or maybe it’s the built-in wine glass holder that is truly calling my name…To check out the new eco-friendly products available at Umbra, click here.
