From my inbox, two funky and fun eco products.
Naturescast is a versatile material innovation that uses Mother Earth’s natural scrap materials like dead barks, shrubs, fallen twigs, leaves, and other agro-forest waste which are recycled to produce a line of hand crafted products. The diverse collection includes furniture, home accessories, garden planters, fashion accessories and more.
The products are sustainable and highly biodegradable. The company commits to green manufacturing practices and provides livelihood opportunities for local communities. Manufactured in the Municipality of Compostela in Cebu, the furniture capital of the Philippines, these are worth a look-see.
At first glance, JP Monkey’s eco tote line looks just like another alternative to “paper or plastic.” This one, however, is made from upholstery fabric remnants and are strong enough to tote heavy loads.
With a percentage of profits being donated to environmental education programs, JP Monkey is a company committed to advancing the cause of sustainable living. Says designer Joslyn Gray, “Our goal is to get everyone to reuse their grocery bags and reduce waste.”
