Our GREEN week leading up to Earth Day on Sunday (4/22) continues at Williams-Sonoma (level 4). I have a great line-up of earth friendly products to show you!
First up, check out this countertop compost pail ($39.95). Toss your food scraps into this brushed stainless steel canister and then empty it into your outdoor compost bin. Odors are minimized thanks to the in-lid charcoal filters. The pail comes with one replacement filter set and additional ones can be purchased separately.
This eco-friendly, reusable roll of 20 bamboo fiber towels ($9.95) is equivalent to up to 60 rolls of paper ones! That’s because the towels can go in the washing machine about 20 times. After their cleaning life is over, these biodegradable towels can be composted or recycled.
Interested in more steps you can take to clean-up in an eco-friendly way? Turn to the Guide to Natural Housekeeping ($19.95) for more tips.
I love how you can incorporate a pop of color into this efficient, energy-saving espresso machine. The single serve Nepresso Pixie ($229.95), available in a range of colors, heats up in just 25 to 30 seconds. It also cuts down on energy usage by shutting off automatically after 9 minutes. Plus, the side panels, seen here in red, are made out of recycled coffee capsules. Those are the little containers that hold the single servings of coffee.
The Nespresso Pixie is also available in indigo, a lighter blue, lime, aluminum and a gunmetal. It comes with 16 coffee capsules.
Plant your own produce with this set of Beekman 1802 Heirloom Garden Seeds ($18), from a farm that dates back to 1802. The set comes with cucumber, turnip, tomato, spinach, sweet pepper, carrot, radish, winter squash, bush bean and pumpkin seeds. “These heirloom seeds are in their purest form and have never been genetically modified, thus helping to preserve the genetic diversity of our nation’s food supply,” reads part of Williams-Sonoma’s description.
If you’ve never planted your own seeds before or want more tips, Williams-Sonoma is hosting a special gardening class fundraiser on Earth Day (4/22) from 2 to 3 pm. During the hands-on workshop, you’ll plant five varieties of Beekman Heirloom seeds in starter pots to take home. All proceeds from the $10 class benefit the Edible Schoolyard Project. Stop into Williams-Sonoma to register or call 410.847.9021. Walk-ins are also welcome.
Did you catch my other green-themed posts this week? Here is Monday’s post at The Body Shop and yesterday’s at Kokopelli. On Friday, I’ll show you some containers from Macy’s that make packing an eco-friendly lunch a cinch!
