Drink Skinny

Keep your summertime fiestas kickin’ with the orGLAMic margarita mix from Drink Skinny.  Not only do I love the two elements in the name (drinking and feeling skinny!) but I love the fact that this mix is all natural and made without artificial sweeteners.  You can happily (and healthily) say goodbye to the saccharine, chemical-like flavor of conventional margarita mixes, because this one is made of only water, lime juice, lemon juice, agave nectar and stevia.  Click here to purchase the orGLAMic, delectable, drink mix.  With only 20 calories per serving, we won’t judge you if you have more than one…or two…or three!

The orGLAMic Good Karma rope toys by Jax and Bones are too precious to resist!  Available in a variety of styles (Lucky the dog, Jerry the Giraffe, Ted the Turtle, and many, many more) each of these dog toys are made from natural, chemical-free cotton making them safe for the planet and your pooch.  Each individual toy is hand-tied in the USA, and is easily machine-washable for durability and ease.  I like that they are simple and small pops of color that would only enhance a sleek modern home when they are inevitably left all over the ground…gotta love dogs!  Click here to purchase one of the delightful toys for your favorite orGLAMic four-legged friend.

While clothing lines featured on orGLAMic are sparse (we are too darn picky!) Bodkin satisfies our eco-friendly design needs season after season.  I am utterly obsessed with shorts and rompers this summer, hence the photo above, but the Spring/Summer 2010 collection is also filled with light, ephemeral dresses and tops of impeccable design.  All of Bodkin’s offerings are made of sustainability-oriented fabrics including post-consumer recycled polyester, hand-loomed weaves from collectives in India, regenerated and recycled wool, fine organic cottons, and decades-old salvaged textiles.  Click here to browse the collections (Autumn/Winter 2010 features some amazingly tailored pants!) and here to find a retailer near you.

Inhabit never ceases to amaze me with their chic eco-friendly stylings.  Today I present to you their amazing Braille Wall Flat.  This simple, yet powerful, addition to a room is made from 100% bamboo pulp and therefor biodegradable!  Each flat can be easily trimmed and mounted to fit any shape, and the scraps can be recycled with paper products or composted.  These durable and sustainable wall coverings are also chemical-free.  And while I like the stark white (surprise, surprise) these would also look really fun painted – with no/low VOC paints, of course!  Click here to purchase the reasonably priced Braille Wall Flat, and here to shop their entire orGLAMic collection.
