Happy Earth Day!

In honor of the occasion I present some eco-faves! That adorable bear up there was in my etsy favorites! He was made out of new and upcycled fabrics, washed with phosphate free detergent. He is also stuffed with 100% polyester stuffing made from recycled plastics. He's gone now (I know, it's so sad) but his creator, Stitchface churns outs lots and lots of adorable eco-friendly plush creatures in her etsy shop. Right now there is the cutest toothy beaver waiting for some lucky person (eco-conscious or not) to adopt him!

Another awesome Etsy shop: Vintage Renaissance ! I love how they repurposed this vintage suitcase into the coolest pet bed! It just wouldn't be the same without those bright, chartreuse, clawfoot legs, I love it! Our shih-tzu, Libby Lu loves to be up high and anytime life gets super-busy and I slack on my laundry duties, I'm sure to find her sleeping in the basket at the very top of the pile. Everything they do is one of a kind so you have to check often to snag one of their awesome creations!

It's no secret I love wooden toys, but not only is this little shoe a mere $6 and teaches your kid the art of tying le-shoe, but it is made of non-toxic eco-friendly rubberwood colored with vegetable dyes! This shop is entirely eco-friendly and has so much great stuff...oh, and free shipping on any order over $50, which would not be hard at all to spend here. *sigh* if only my credit cards weren't in my freezer. :)

Yet another one of my favorite etsy shops, Yava Glass! Awesome upcycled glasses. I always think of this Etsy shop when I see a really cool bottle...they will turn any screen-printed glass bottles into your own personal drinkware. I will definitely be on the lookout on our next trip to Germany!
