Whether you plan on spending your summer journaling in exotic locals or still tackling your office to-do list, a book from ecosystem will make the experience all the more orGLAMic.  The company offers four varieties of equally useful books, depending on your needs: artist (blank pages), author (lined), advisor (calendar) and architect (grid).  And in addition to onyx (my fave, surprise, surprise), the sleek and modern books are available in a variety of punchy colors such as kiwi, clementine, lagoon and watermelon.  Made from 100% post-consumer recycled paper and in the US under fair-trade standards, you really can’t go wrong with any combination.  Click here to purchase your own from the orGLAMic collection.

I am in love.  It’s true, I think that the Vers Audio iPod Docking Station really may have won me over and converted me to a techie lover.  This sustainable version of the plastic docking stations that are littering our planet is beautifully designed and IS my definition of orGLAMic.

vers1This docking system plays and charges iPod Video, iPod Nano, iPod mini, iPod, iPod classic, iPod touch and iPhone.  Using the most environmentally friendly bonding agents available, each Vers 2X is 100% RoHS-compliant (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) and even the plastic components are PVC & BFR free.  The units are designed for complete disassembly so all parts can be recycled and packaging is from 100% post-consumer recycled content.  Even better, if you send in your old iPod docking system, they will make sure that it is recycled properly and give you a $30 credit!  It doesn’t get any better (or louder) than this!  Click here to purchase.

Watching all the people gather in Washington, DC for Inauguration festivities, I can’t help but think some of them didn’t realize what kind of weather they were facing.  And if I could recommend one orGLAMic line of outerwear (among other clothing) it would be Nau.  The Shelter Jacket, pictured above, is just one of their many durable and eco-friendly items.  I like the simplicity of the jacket and the fact that it is made of recycled polyester fabric made from post-consumer and post-industrial polyester waste.  And at the end of its long life the Shelter Jacket can be recycled once again into polyester fibers for reuse.  Click here to bundle up in an orGLAMic way.

einstien3Not to be left behind, our four legged friends can get in on the green sleep trend as well.  This Eco Nap mat by West Paw is exactly where my rescued Chihuahua Chano would like to sleep all day and night if he had his way.  The mats are milled in the USA with 85% of the fabric comprised of IntelliLoftTM fibers – post consumer recycled plastic, better known as the soda-pop bottles. Over 40 plastic bottles are diverted from landfills with every Extra Large Eco Nap, and even a Medium Eco Nap diverts more than 21 bottles with each mat!  Click here to shop all of West Paw’s eco-friendly options, including dog sweaters made out of reclaimed cotton and recyclable dog toys.
