Kid Basix

Kid Basix has redesigned the children’s sippy cup in a manner that makes our orGLAMic hearts flutter.  This modern, eco-friendly take on the dowdy (and BPA-filled!) plastic cups of the past is made from non-leeching, toxin-free stainless steel, while the detailing uses BPA- and phthalate-free plastic.  These have passed my tumble-test to assure that they won’t leak when held upside-down, thrown or even jumped on, and little kids seem to love the thoughtfully shaped handles and sleeve.  Click here to purchase The Safe Sippy, or one of it’s orGLAMic cousins The Safe Sippy 2, The Safe Starter or The Safe Sporter.

New York-based company, Area, offers a wide variety of beautiful linens.   All of the company’s items are made of natural fibers, but I go gaga for their organic options.  I love the way the perfectly imperfect white lines break up the grey in this ONEWAY Grey set, shown above.  Made of soft 200tc 100% certified organic cotton percale, this orGLAMic duvet set is luxurious, eco-friendly and chic at the same time.  Click here to purchase this specific set, and here to browse the entire company website – including organic linens for baby.

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.
