Yoghund

If dog is a man’s best friend, than Yoghund is an orGLAMic man’s best friend’s friend.  This USDA-certified organic frozen yogurt treat is a fun and healthy way to keep orGLAMic pups happy.  In addition, the company goes eco by using 100% recycled boxes that are processed chlorine-free, while the yogurt cups are made of paper for increased safety (which is a good thing since I know a puggle (yes, you Rudy!) who would likely eat the cup as well!)  Available in Banana & Peanut Butter and Blueberry & Vanilla Bean, all you have to do is click here to find a North American store near you.

Jax and Bones

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.

If a dog is a man’s best friend, than Molly Mutt is an orGLAMic man’s best friend.  Keep your BFF happy with these eco-friendly, chic dog bed duvets by this California-based company.  I adore the Title Track Dog Duvet show above and while it may not be the most appropriate Manly Monday selection, I thought I would show you the pattern I personally placed an order for.  While not made of organic cotton (yet…) these pouches are designed to be stuffed with items you already own, such as old dog bed filler, ratty blankets, or clothing that even Goodwill won’t take!  This upcycling keeps waste out of landfills and helps repurpose materials otherwise destined for the dump.  Click here to shop the entire eco-minded collection.

Pam Wheelock

Amp up your dog’s exercise routine in the new year as well with these orGLAMic Organic Dog Fetch Balls.  Hand-formed by artist Pam Wheelock, these balls are made of organic, dye-free wool from small family farms throughout the United States.  These fetch balls also exhibit great design – I wouldn’t mind having these lying around the house, as doggie toys always seem to end up!  In addition, the wool used is processed with gentle, non-toxic soaps which is a good thing considering your pet won’t be able to stop chewing on these precious playthings.  Click here to purchase these orGLAMic items from Eco-Artware.com, an excellent resource for green goodies galore.

Neutra

Any orGLAMic fashionista in your life is sure to appreciate bags by Neutra.  All of Neutra’s products are made of discarded inner car tubes. Because tires are made out of nonrecyclable materials, this is the perfect way to keep trash out of the landfills and look stylish while doing it.  My personal fave is the Zap handbag pictured above, but Neutra offers dozens of items ranging from clutches and laptop bags, to accessories such a sketchbooks and luggage tags.  There are plenty of gifts for men on this site as well!  Click here to purchase the Zap bag, and here to shop the orGLAMic Neutra collection

Picture 11Originally designed in 1984 by Normal Earl, the appropriately named Audubon Soda Bottle Bird Feeder is making a comeback.  While this certainly isn’t high glamour, there is something understated and simple that I like about this orGLAMic bird feeder.  To make, just screw any two-liter bottle into the sturdy, zinc cast adapter and hang from a tree or attach to a pole.  Your feathered friends will be feed in style, while keeping out critters such as squirrels.  Available a multitude of places online (just google “soda bottle bird feeder”) one can click here to order from one of my favorite orGLAMic retailers, Design Within Reach.
