Green Cupboards

Green Cupboards

It seems I have been slacking on my hunting down green businesses. I have been a bad beagle! I didn’t want to continue to disappoint so I have found GreenCupboards.com. I have written a few articles on items I have found at their store. GreenCupboards.com offers a wide variety of items such as toys, grocery items, outdoor, office and even electronics. I know many green retailers may sell green products but their values are lacking. GreenCupboards.comgoes out of their way to assure their customers that they are as legitimate as their products.

About GreenCupboards.com: Green Cupboards is a leading online retailer of eco-friendly products for homes and businesses. Based in Spokane, Washington, the company was the winner of a regional university business plan competition and was subsequently co-founded in 2008 by Gonzaga University graduates Josh Neblett, Sarah Wollnick and their Adjunct Professor, Tom Simpson.
Struck by the lack of one-stop shopping alternatives for eco-friendly merchandise, the co-founders set out to create a customer-centric brand and streamline the way people buy green. Greencupboards targets consumers who strive to do the right things to sustain the planet, yet are challenged to find a broad selection of eco-friendly products that work and cost about the same as a their non-green counterparts.
GreenCupboards offers the vastest array of thoroughly vetted eco-friendly products of any e-retailer in our market. We currently provide approximately 15,000 unique items from over 600 suppliers. Critical to our mission, we endeavor to provide an easy, fun and educational shopping experience, over-the-top customer service and competitive prices. To date, we have satisfied the purchasing needs of over 100,000 consumers.
GreenCupboards employs over 50 youthful, zany and eco-friendly minds. Our culture is as dynamic as the shopping experience we deliver.

Lotus Teen Batik Skirt

Lotus Teen Batik Skirt

Lotus Teen Batik Skirt

 

I am swooning over the patterns of this skirt! Very much my style. Lotus Jayne never disappoints! The Batik Skirt can be worn almost all year round with either leggings or tights! It’s great!  The skirt is Fair Trade made and sewn in a workshop run by women! Another plus that can’t be ignored is it is only $20!! You can be styling and conscious at the same time.  Supporting women’s businesses globally is so important.  We need to keep this type of Fair Trade practice thriving. Companies like Lotus Jayne are extremely important to our green economy. Every purchase we make isn’t only an economic decision but a social one as well which most people refuse to think about. I understand the importance of looking good but it is of greater importance to support businesses that support our global good like Lotus Jayne.

 

Product Description: The Batik Skirt is Jayne’s original design, sewn in medium-weight cotton, a fabric with lots of body that won’t go limp after one washing. The cloth was made in small Indonesian Batik workshops and is authentic.

This skirt is free-sized with an elastic waistband which can be worn on waist or hips and can accommodate many body types, so please check measurements before ordering.

All fair trade, sewn in a workshop run by women with HIV/AIDS

The Robomow

Robomow

Robomow

 

 

 

I know the Robomow is expensive but the lazy beagle in myself really wants this. I am not the biggest fan of mowing the lawn. It takes forever and makes my allergies go crazy. Here is a description of the Robomow and why you should love it besides the fact that it comes with Free Shipping:

 

 

Tired of pushing or riding that lawn mower of yours for seemingly endless amounts of time, every week? Robomow’s RL 2000 is the perfect solution to give you more time doing what you love, instead of mowing the lawn. This robotic lawn mower is recommended for large lawns between 12,900 and 17,200 square feet. It comes with a base station for automated storage, charging and easy mower scheduling. You can schedule this mower to run day or night without bothering your neighbors: these machines will run at a noise level as low as 65 decibels when in eco-mode. To give a comparison, this is the same amount of noise generated by a normal conversation.

What makes the Robomow Green?
Robomow is as green as the grass it mows.
From saving energy to the way it cuts the grass, Robomow is making as less impact on the environment as possible.
With new ingenious technology and innovative grasscycling techniques, the fully automatic lawnmowers are much easier to use, waste less energy, emit less air pollution and create less impact on the world around us.While mowing your lawn, Robomow cuts the grass into very fine cuttings and disperses them over the ground. These clippings decompose quickly and release beneficial organic nutrients and water into the soil. This results in a healthier and better-looking lawn and eliminates the need to collect and remove the clippings.

Synergy Peacock Skirt

Synergy Peacock Skirt

Synergy Peacock Skirt

 

 

I love peacocks! Their colors are beautiful and every time I see them I want to go right up and squeeze them. When ever I see something with either a peacock design or feathers I fall in love. Which is basically what happened right here with the Syngergy Peacock Skirt! I love love love it!! Perfect for spring and summer and since the colors are muted you can carry it right into fall if you want. The Synergy Peacock Skirt is handmade with organic cotton by artisans in Nepal using Fair Trade practices as well as using minimal carbon foot print practices ie using low impact dyes for the skirt. The only set back is the skirt does run a little small in sizing so please make sure to go up in size when ordering.

Organic Club Sofa in Hemp Fabric

Organic Club Sofa in Hemp Fabric

Organic Club Sofa in Hemp Fabric

 

 

Hello organic couch from Bean Products, Inc.!! I want it for many a reason but honestly the price is such a deterrent. I get it is organic hemp and a sofa bed, you have 17 fabric colors to choose from and you can even choose the colors for the feet and it’s hand crafted! The wood used is sustainably harvested and the cushion’s can even biodegrade. There are soo many amazing green qualities to this piece of furniture. You can tell that Bean Products, Inc. really goes out of its way to offer you a high quality and highly responsible piece of furniture however that being said I feel like even some of the most dedicated greenies who would love to purchase this comfy little tid bit couldn’t because of the price when you can find furniture for much less than that at many other chain stores. I don’t advocate shopping at the big chains when there are greener alternatives but especially in tough economic times we really have to find a way to make green products more affordable to everyone. I would buy this couch in an instant (as I am definitely in need of a new one) but I can’t invest $5200 in a couch when many places offer 7 piece furniture sets for around that price. I’m n0t sure if you are like me and want to support green businesses as much as possible but with things like this I can’t no matter how much I want it and how much I’d rather put my money towards this than come plastic couch from China I can’t invest that much money in anything that frivolous right now. I don’t know too many people who could and the people I do know who could wouldn’t shop at Bean Products, Inc. anyway but that is an entirely different story.

Mandala Record Bowls

Mandala Record Bowls

Mandala Record Bowls

 

 

 

 

Hello the holidays are here! You know you need something to be a center piece or to hold decorations so why not try Mandala Record Bowls?! I know we have all seen the bowls made out of vinyl records before but these have some panache! They colors and designs are hand painted on there. Mandala offers a variety of colors and designs. I am in love with these record bowls. I am not going to lie they are a tad pricey but I completely think the record bowls are worth it for their design and craftsmanship! Click here to get your very own Mandala Record Bowl now!

About:Carnation Pink Mandala Record Bowls are created from recycled 12″ vinyl records. The “platters from the past” are upcycled with fresh acrylic paint and an original Eye Pop Art mandala design which is painted freehand with glossy highlights.

The record bowls are hand painted in original psychedelic patterns, heated, and lovingly sculpted into uniquely organic, flower-like forms. The spindle holes are filled so the bowls are water tight and functional. Semi-gloss polyurethane is used to finish to protect the paint and make the bowls food safe. The original record labels intact (and also sealed with polyurethane) on the bottom of each bowl – which record will YOU get?

Eye Pop Art bowls are fantastic for holding fruit, candy, candles, trinkets, or anything your heart desires. They are bright, colorful art objects to set on your coffee table. They are eco-friendly and make a great conversation piece! Surprise your guests when you tell them to flip the bowl over and see the very interesting recycled material that it was made from!

Most of us have fond memories of the days when all we listened to was records – let the music live forever with a Mandala Record Bowl.

Mandala Record Bowls by Christine Claringbold are hand painted with original designs using high quality acrylic paints, then heated and lovingly sculpted into unique organic, flower-like forms. The artist has sealed up the spindle hole to make the bowl water tight and functional. The entire bowl, as well as the original record label on the bottom of the bowl, has been sealed with a glossy finish.

Made from a recycled 12″ vinyl record, the finished size is about 10″ in diameter and 3″ deep (about 25.4 cm in diameter and 7.62 cm deep).

Product Notes:
- Hand wash gently with a damp cloth, air dry. Please do not put in the dishwasher, oven, or microwave!
- These are hand made items and may take up to one week to ship..
