“Wendy’s Weekly Picks,” is a feature in which I highlight stuff I like or recommend in the worlds of fashion, gift ideas, home decor, makeup, websites, entertainment, and recipes. Of course, much of the stuff I link to will be affiliate products, which means I’ll receive a commission on any click-throughs or purchases you make through the affiliate links. As always, I appreciate your support! In honor of Earth Day on Saturday, here are my favorite green and eco-friendly finds this week:
For your wedding, maybe.
This cute clutch, which is on sale and almost sold-out, is made out of palm leaves! I’d totally carry that on a night out.
Cute tee made entirely of recycled cotton.
These earrings, made from recycled brass, are gorgeous. (Bonus: Purchasing these earrings helps provide fair wages and benefits for Kenyan artisans in a safe and healthy work environment.)
This is the garbage can we own for recycling (which is the law here in NYC). It’s not cheap, but it’s sleek and so easy to use that even Joanie has it figured out. I found ours on some super sale years ago at Bed Bath and Beyond, so if you’re in the market, keep your eyes peeled for a deal.
I need this book. You probably do, too.
Wow, what a great price for this cute tree swing, made from recycled cotton. If only I had a tree!
For the last two or three years, we’ve been collecting our food scraps to be composted (we don’t do the actual composting), which is easy enough here in Brooklyn where there are two collection spots a short walk from our place. We keep scraps in our freezer and drop them off every Wednesday and Saturday, which works well. In the beginning, we used this compost collection bin, which is great if you don’t have room to spare in your freezer, or you want an easily accessible spot to collect scraps throughout the day before composting in your garden or storing elsewhere to bring to a collecting or compost site. I also see people bring this compost bin to the collection site at the farmers market every week, too. #BrooklynHippies
Ok, this isn’t specifically eco-friendly (it isn’t un eco-friendly), but it’s very seasonally-appropriate and look how cute!
