TOMS Shoes was founded on a simple premise: For every pair you purchase, TOMS will give a pair of shoes to a child in need. One for One. Using the purchasing power of individuals to benefit the greater good is what we're all about.

there is a great bamboo forest up the street from our house. my husband grabbed a few stalks to use as a climbing trellis for our beans in the garden. he sent me this picture a few minutes ago to show the progress. i'll post better pictures soon after this month long rain ceases this weekend and things start to look prettier.

ModRocks are 100% recycled clear glass pebble tile. check out the different installations available from the same product. eco-friendly, good looking, and modern...triple threat!
Consumer bottles are crushed into small pieces, tumbled and then mesh mounted onto 12" by 12" interlocking sheets. Average sheet thickness and individual chip size is approximately 1cm or 3/8" each. These are 100% recycled glass, and since there is no melting involved, very little energy is used in the production process. (via modwalls)

my "i am not a paper cup" porcelain to go cup is naked without a cute cozy. i'm a cozy freak when it comes to cans and bottles, but i don't have a good one for my coffee. i've been using a recycled cardboard cozy from starbucks, but it doesn't fit snuggly. help me pick one out. here are some of my favorites from etsy.
