If there is rehab for purses, I belong there.  While I try to keep my consumption to a minimum (let’s keep it green, people!) it is nice to know that my splurges can also be eco-conscious purchases.  Erin Templeton makes some of the most orGLAMic purses I’ve found.  The Side Saddle, pictured above, is my favorite among the ten different styles available.  The classic bucket bag is trendy once again, and while the bag shown above is made of buffalo hide, it is also available out of recycled leather otherwise destined for a landfill.  Click here to browse the entire collection, including accessories.

Pendleton

As the days of summer amble along, add some classic Americana decor to your home with Pendleton.  Known for their classic blankets and such, this company also offers this whimsical yet staid Horshoe Lamp and Shade.  Recycled trotter horseshoes are hand-welded into these one-of-a-kind lamps that are topped with a handmade burlap shade.  I think a pair of these would make excellent bedside lamps in a light-filled, stark, white room.  While you’re browsing for orGLAMic wares, also take a peek at the delightful Riata and Stripe Easy Care blankets made of ‘eco-wise’ wool.

GreenSewn is upcycling at it’s finest.  Strips of recycled, vintage, silk saris are carefully handsewn together to create beautiful scarves and wraps that can be worn an infinite number of ways.  I would either wear these looped and draped elegantly around my neck or as a wrap to keep me warm on airplanes, but they can we worn around your head, as a shawl, or even around the waist or chest as a beach coverup.  And in addition to offering eco-conscious wares, GreenSewn donates to Trees For The Future so that 10 trees are planted with every purchase!  Click here for this scarf and here to browse and find the unique, orGLAMic scarf for you!
