Picture 1The only hand purifier of it’s kind on the market, Clean George‘s All Natural Hand Purifier is soon to be an orGLAMic favorite.  Perfect for picnics, BBQs and travel alike, this all-natural formula is alcohol-free and goes on like a moisturizer, so it is good for the environment and your skin!  Unlike conventional hand sanitizers, Clean George’s orGLAMic formula does not promote germ resistance or the evolution of “super germs.”  The bottle is made of 100% post-consumer recycled plastic and all of the company’s brochures and business cards are printed with vegetable-based inks on on 100% recycled paper.  Click here to purchase this orGLAMic product in either Grapefruit n’ Sage, Lovin’ Lavender or Mint-Alyptus (pictured above.)

Here in Los Angeles, tomorrow is Bike To Work day, and there is no better way to haul the usual suspects (lunch, loose papers, a change of clothes, that book you are going to read during your lunch break someday…) than in an orGLAMic bag from Timbuk2‘s eco-friendly line.  On the company’s comprehensive website, shoppers can build their own bag choosing from a variety of colors and eco-friendly fabrics such as recycled polyester and hemp.  While I was drawn to the simple beige bag offered on the site, I couldn’t resist having a little fun and playing around to create my own masterpiece.  The bag pictured above is my own orGLAMic, Missoni-inspired creation!  Click here to create and order your own orGLAMic messenger bag from Timbuk2.
