Celebrate the 4th of July in style, elegantly sprawled on an orGLAMic towel by Amy Butler Design.  In collaboration with Welspun, Amy unveiled the Organic Exchange collection of bath and beach towels in June.  The towels are bright, fresh and modern, and are printed with low-impact dyes on 100% organic fibers.  Towels aren’t the only items with Amy’s flirty designs – click here for her official website and more looks at her offerings.  And while the towels are available at Bed Bath & Beyond (yay! mainstream stores offering eco options!) you can click here to shop the entire orGLAMic collection online.

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!

Longtime eco-designers Karen Stewart and Howard Brown have caught my eye with Stewart+Brown‘s Early Spring 2010 collection!  All of the companies designs are eco-conscious, including the gorgeous Winslet Long Cardigan pictured above.  Made of Mongolian cashmere (is the perfect light topper to a springtime dress or silk tank and jean combo.  The Mongolian cashmere used throughout the line is made of hand-combed fibers and is harvested, spun and knit in Mongolia to reduce environmental impact.  With the Late Spring 2010 collection also available, you are sure to find an orGLAMic piece for your wardrobe by just clicking here.

While not the only ‘filter in a bottle’ on the market, bobble is certainly the most orGLAMic.  I love, love, love the sleek design and the fact that they are so reasonably priced.  Made of recycled and recyclable BPA-free plastic, these bottles cost only $9.95 and the carbon filter lasts 2 months or 40 gallons of water, whichever comes first.  Available in blue, green, black, red, yellow and magenta, the filter is then replaceable for just $6.95.  Bobble’s are available online by clicking here, but also at one of my favorite stores in my hometown of Washington, DC – the fabulous Hill’s Kitchen.

Sometimes mainstream retailers surprise us with both their upscale design options as well as eco-conscious product selection.  This Bamboo Bath Coordinate set is available by Target (which I confess, I can’t resist once in a while.)  The sleek, simple look makes this set of unfinished bamboo bath tray, soap/lotion dispenser and bathroom tumbler look much more expensive than the $19.99 that it retails for.  Click here to snag one for yourself, and here to browse the over 1,000 other orGLAMic offerings available at Target.

This revolutionary company is transforming the way America lives, one orGLAMic PeopleTowel at a time.  A chic throwback to the more eco-friendly days of handkerchiefs (and the way the Japanese have been living forever!), these 100% cotton, reusable personal towels are the wave of the future.  Instead of using paper towels throughout the day, it is a cinch to carry one of these well-designed towels along for the ride.  Actually, for each person that uses a PeopleTowel for a year, landfill waste is reduced by 23 lbs. and 250 gallons of water is conserved.  And if you hurry up and order a PeopleTowel before 11/30, you will receive a free EcoSak to carry your towel in! Click here to purchase the ultimate orGLAMic stocking stuffer.

And soon, you too can get in on the revolution, with the first ever People Towels’ Design Contest!  Yours truly (orGLAMic!) has been asked to be one of the judges on the panel, helping select the newest design to be printed on the next set of PeopleTowels.  With tons of cash prizes, and the chance for your creation to be the next PeopleTowel, the contest begins on February February 4th, 2010 so click here for all the orGLAMic details.
