Eco-Emi

Eco-Emi BoxWhat would you say if I told you that you could stay home and get really cool environmentally friendly products sent straight to your door each and every month for only $15? Well, that’s exactly what Eco-Emi’s subscription service does! Every month your box will include five to ten samples of natural, organic, green, eco-friendly, cruelty free, vegan, vegetarian or Fair Trade products and they are all packaged and wrapped very nicely, perfect and ready for gift giving!

One of the coolest parts about this box is it’s a surprise as to what you will get. For me, the surprise alone is worth the price. There is a theme for each month, so for example the October box was packaged in some really fun halloween materials and one of the items in the box was a fantastic coffee flavored soap! It wouldn’t be fall without some coffee, or coffee soap that is! Everything from the packaging to the items was quite magical and makes you feel like you are getting something truly special.

Right now there is a waiting list for the box, which means that this little box is growing in popularity, and to that we are excited! Eco-Emi is a wonderful subscription box that deserves all of the attention it can get and the fact that their goal is to deliver high quality products that you can feel good about using right to you front door, is a goal that more and more companies should strive towards. To find out more about the box or to get on the waiting list, just visit EcoEmi.com.

Core Bamboo: A New Kind of Bowl

We were fortunate enough to be born into a more privileged environment. We view it as our responsibility to help those who weren’t.

Those words come straight from Core Bamboo’s website. The business, which sells dining, prep, and serving equipment made from organically grown bamboo, employs more than 2,000 employees around the world. These artisans and their communities all benefit from Core Bamboo’s presence, which might provide anything from medical opportunities to recreation.

Although it doesn’t necessarily seem like the go-to material for creating dishes, Core Bamboo has created several successful lines which include everything from napkin rings and pepper shakers to knives and bowls. Bamboo is lightweight, strong, naturally anti-microbial, and regenerative, making it a perfect candidate for reusable dishware. A simple hand wash using warm water and soap will keep pieces clean, and Core Bamboo suggests a light rubbing with food safe mineral oil to regenerate a tired-looking bowl.

In addition to knowing that every bowl comes from a sustainable grass rather than glass or wood, buyers will also be excited to know that these eco-friendly items also look great. Whether it’s a basic bamboo finish, a smooth solid coat of paint, or the elegant zebra-like stripes created by crushed bamboo, these items make a simple yet intriguing aesthetic statement.

The entire collection can easily be ordered directly from Core Bamboo’s website. Shops like Macy’s and Kitchen Couture also carry some pieces.
