preserveThe same company that makes my favorite toothbrush (and one of our very first posts here on orGLAMic!), Preserve, offers recyclable cutlery perfect for greening your Memorial Day celebration this weekend.  Made of 100% recycled plastic and also 100% recyclable, these plates, tumblers and cutlery are orGLAMic indeed.  Instead of disposable tabelwares, these items are durable, reusable and even dishwasher safe.  Available in Tulip Red, Pear Green and Ocean Teal, these are the perfect items to kick start the beginning of an eco-friendly, orGLAMic summer.  Click here to purchase and take a look at all of Preserve’s orGLAMic products.

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.)

Picture 2Always on the hunt for beautiful, modern eco-friendly furniture (for my future dream home) I came across, and subsequently fell in love with, MAMAGREEN.  Run by two Belgian designers, MAMAGREEN offers a wide array of orGLAMic outdoor furniture for even the most discriminating tastes.  Featuring FSC-certified reclaimed teak and environmentally friendly synthetics, this line offers contemporary and luxurious sustainable furniture.  Personally, I’m a fan of the Sparta Line, but with 11 greatly varied collections there is something for everyone.  Click here to take a look at this orGLAMic outdoor furniture line now.

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.

Picture 1Because the Shoji lanterns on orGLAMic were such a hit (thanks for your feedback, readers!) I bring you a similar take for your summertime outdoor gatherings.  The modern, less-expensive offshoot of Crate & Barrel, CB2, offers these Recycled Lanterns for a classic, simple way to light outdoor spaces without using electricity.  Made out of recycled iron sheet packaging, filling these lanterns with candles (soy-based, of course!) is a great way to keep the party going outdoors long after the sun has set.  On sale for $19.95 right now, this orGLAMic deal can’t be beat.  Be sure to browse the other orGLAMic products available by CB2 when you click here to purchase.
