Those of you in the eco-know have probably heard about Envirosax reusable bags by now – but did you realize how many chic, orGLAMic options they carry?  I certainly didn’t, and was thrilled to discover the over 70 styles on their website!  Personally, I am partial to the Midnight Safari for myself (and Sesame Street series for tots!), but there are fabulous organic and bamboo options available as well.  All the waterproof and durable bags are lightweight, making them an easy staple to throw in the back of your car or purse for eco-conscious living at all times!  Click here to shop the entire Envirosax collection.

If wearing a suit and tie to work gets a little humdrum come summertime, spruce up your look with an orGLAMic tie by Collared Greens.  In addition to all the eco-initiatives that the company is founded on, the silk ties in preppy prints are truly what make me smile.  Each tie (in both mens and boys sizes!  love!) is packaged in Smartwood- and FSC-certified 100% post consumer recycled paper, and all the shipping boxes, packing tape and tissue paper is also made with recycled materials.  Click here to shop the entire orGLAMic collection including women’s items and organic hats, t-shirts and polos.

Any good orGLAMic reader knows that we have a thing for totes.  A major thing.  And while we don’t regularly approach total strangers in an attempt to track down whose bag came from where, that is exactly what we did when laying our eyes upon this bag from West Hollywood design duo Graf & Lantz.  It turns out each of their totes is carefully handmade with natural, sustainable, oekotox-certified merino wool felt and vegetable tanned leather, which are both biodegradable and recyclable.  With an endless array of color combinations and even custom items available, this is a slice of orGLAMic heaven.  Click here to buy a tote bag and here to browse the entire collection, including duffel bags, wine carriers, wallets and more!

The brainchild of Los Angeles-based jewelry-designer-turned-philanthropist Tina Tangalakis, Della has already made a huge splash in the short time since it’s inception in 2009.  Employing and empowering the women of Hohoe, Ghana, Della offers one-of-a-kind, handmade, vegan bags and accessories made of sustainable materials.  My personal pick is the Summertime in Yellow Classic Della Bag which would add the perfect punch to any day at the beach – and I love that every item has a label signed by the artist who made it.  Click here to purchase the bag pictured above and here to shop the entire orGLAMic collection including messenger bags, wallets, business card holders and more.

Spruce up Poker night (or Old Maid – we’re not judging!) with this unique deck of cards from Binth.  Although we posted about Binth just a couple of months ago (see our 4/19/10 post) I love the thought of this Joker Playing Card Deck as an orGLAMic Father’s Day gift and had to bring this company to your attention again.  The wonderfully executed, original artwork on this deck is printed with soy-based inks and made in the USA, making it beautiful and orGLAMic at the same time.  Click here to purchase a set for dad (or yourself!) today.
