Picture 2With one of their showrooms down the street from my apartment, Environment Furniture has been an orGLAMic fave for quite some time.  Now with their Exchange for Change Sofa Project, it just may be time to pony up and replace my old sofa with a sustainable alternative.  (Of course, it is NOT eco-friendly to dispose of perfectly good furniture just for the fun of it!)  Environment Furniture is now offering 25% off their sofas and will pick up your used sofa free of charge.  The Studio Sofa with Peroba Arms, pictured above, would be my orGLAMic choice.  Made of linen and recycled canvas, the sleek lines would go perfectly in my modern living room.  Click here to browse the entire sustainable furniture collection.

glassBased out of Los Angeles, jewelry designer Jenny Gaynor offers precious orGLAMic pieces within her collection.  Creating everything from vases to bracelets, I am a fan of the pieces that are handblown from recycled glass otherwise destined for a landfill. At only $48, I love the orGLAMic chain link bracelet which symbolizes a bond and calls for attachment and connection with others.  The links are made of recycled glass and are tied to biodegradable waxed string (which is available in red, black or chocolate.)  Click here to browse the entire Jenny Gaynor Glass collection.
