Blythe King's amazing vintage fabric pouches protect your iPod with bright and lovely material that's already around --- just crying out to be used -- love them!

MonkeyGurrl

OMG, I *love* the Caoba Top from zelaya... Uhmmm, I'd *reduce* buying clothes b/c I'd wear it every day!

MonkeyGurrl

Every necklace from Lulu Bug - recycle by alternating each one.

MonkeyGurrl

Cadet Majorette by Haute Andi - Reduce the heating bill by staying warm (and stylish).

Linda

Cosa Verde's glass earrings are gorgeous! I'm a big fan of vintage and reusing, so these ones really appeal to me. ^_^

MonkeyGurrl

Parade iSockit Deluxe from Blythe King. Reuse constantly!

Rebecca Loesch

I checked out the Bicycle Chain Wall Art from Re-Bicycle - and I love it. Not only are they Reusing materials that could go to waste, but they are also tapping in to my love of emissions-free transportation! Woot Woot!

Krista S

The Laundry Soap (from Eco Everyday) is great because it reduces the impact that washing clothes has on water quality. I already make my own but would love the chance to see someone else's version.

MonkeyGurrl

Now with the The Tides Necklace from BlackStar, I'd be keeping things coooooool.

Jessica F

I love Dolan Geiman's panel paintings! They are lovely :)

MonkeyGurrl

Old Hippie candle from Besem will reduce my consumption of electricity!

Joan Fabian

Hi there! Love the BeSem scents...so natural and so healthy! Can't get enough of their great products.
Thanks for putting it all together so nicely!

Sunflower Vintage from Tru-che - I think they are like solar panels, no?

kerri j.

All the products are beautiful! Thank you for honoring Earth Day!

The Circle Fawn Necklace from Fig & Ginger! This is beautiful! Their pieces are made by hand and use at least 50% recycled silver. With many other environmentally smart practices, this husband and wife team are making a commitment to be eco-friendly in their business! I love that! We can all learn from them and try to integrate some of their practices into our daily lives. It's easy. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!

I love the bicycle chain wall art using recycled bicycle parts. What a unique use of recycled matermaterial!

jenn m.

Krista S

OOOOhh... I love the circle fawn necklace. I also love that the company that makes them uses 50% recycled silver and eco-friendly smithing techniques.

Jennalee

Set of 4 Recycled Wine Bottle Glasses from Rewined Recycled Glassware, what a great way to reuse gorgeous glass by making it even prettier to drink out of !!

MonkeyGurrl

Stick With Me, Kid from Earth Cadets - re-use EVERYWHERE!

MB_in_DC

I love the Fork Easels from DinnerTimeChimes - in fact I have purchase some before to give as a gift - they use something that would normally be unwanted (extra silverware), reuses it into something useful (easel) and therefore reduces the need to make/purchase a small easel. Plus they look charming.

Sara G.

I love these recycled glasses from Cosa Verde: http://cosaverde.com/store/rewinedrecycledglassware/. They're gorgeous and they're made from recycled materials.

MonkeyGurrl

Fig & Ginger has just the Circle Fawn Necklace available, but what a gorgeous necklace! Reuse/recycle by wearing every day.

Chris

i heart this!!

MonkeyGurrl

Ooo-La-La-Lavender from BananaSaurus Rex would keep my yarn safe from moths...

ann c

Any of the Cosa Verde food bags would be great to have and use ( and re-use!).

MonkeyGurrl

Purple eyes from Paperelle would force me to finally learn how to make paper stars. And I would use that ability to recycle/reuse all the printed material I could get my hands on!

Kirsten B

I absolutely LOVE the Flores Handbag from zelaya. The design is beautiful and made from natural cotton (meaning no toxic dyes). Also, quality construction = last a lifetime (rather than filling a landfill somewhere).

Roberta T

I adore the DinnerTimeChimes Fork Easels- what a great way to Reuse mis-matched and unloved silverware!

MonkeyGurrl

Oh my gawsh, is Lemongrass Seaweed not the *perfect* beach tote? I'd reuse it all summer long.

MonkeyGurrl

Lemongrass seaweed from willywaw, that is.

Kathryn A

I like the reusable produce bags from kootsac. They reduce the need for plastic and ripstop nylon can be re-used almost endlessly.

Kirsten B

I have a thing for deers. That's why I am drooling over the fawn necklace from figs & ginger. It's even made from 50% recycled silver!

ann c

in reference to above comment : *Food bags Made by Kootsac

MonkeyGurrl

First of all, Olive Bites has the most ingenious idea ever! I love the I Read Banned Books Recycled Magnetic Set. I'd have to reuse that every day as well.

MonkeyGurrl

How sweet - the Naturalist Necklace (amethyst) is so pretty, I'd have to use that as house decoration as well as self decoration.

Allyson L

Love this amethyst naturalist necklace by pica pica! It is a great example of how re-using and re-purposing old items can create great art!

MB_in_DC

I also liked the Knit Mug Cozy from KnitStorm - so cute! It uses recycled wool (recycle and reuse) plus it would keep your reusable mug warm (reduce - no disposable cups!) And I noticed the iPod cozy too, quite adorable.

Xmittens

I covet kittsac's reusable bags. Whenever I go to the local co-op I really wish I had them! I hate putting produce and bulk items in icky plastic bags. it's great that kootsac's are reuseable and easily cleaned!

Kirsten B

Pillows are so comforting, and who doesn't need a little comfort in these times? Even more comforting is the fact that this one from Chakra Pennywhistle is made from organic twill and thread.

MonkeyGurrl

Plarn (!) bags from Copabananas would be great for carrying my lunch to work every day (plus my book, and my yarn, and...)

Allyson L

Y'know, I've seen wine bottle corks reused before and made into things like cork boards or coasters, but never giant totally tacky push pins! Brilliant!

jenn m.

I have a soft spot for vintage sheets, so Mary Zoom's market bag really steals my heart. What a great way to cut down on those nasty plastic bags!

Kirsten B

The wrap from 2enju is just what I need to keep toasty at work when the air conditioning is cranked up. It's got style and is made from organic cotton jersey material,eco-friendly dyes, and non toxic chemicals. Yay!

Meghan S.

I think the recycled glasses from Cosa Verde (http://cosaverde.com/store/rewinedrecycledglassware) are beautiful and an ingenious reuse of the material.

MonkeyGurrl

Ooooo! The sweater wrap from 2enju is CUUUUUUTE!! I'd save the rainforests by being so cute!

Xmittens

And TickledPinkKnits is another fave! I love her organic yarn cowls that are also reasonably priced. Organic processes are better for the earth and, since these yarns are mostly undyed, there isn't as much concern about dye byproducts in the water system. Yeah!

Elle

I absolutely adore the dandelion necklace from Lulu Bug Jewelry and the Circle Fawn necklace from Figs & Ginger; both made from recycled/reclaimed silver!

Allyson L

An awesome way to reduce would be to use this large and lovely seaweed with seahorse tote by willywaw. http://cosaverde.com/store/willywaw/463/

amber

I love this top! it's so feminine and relaxed at the same time.

http://cosaverde.com/store/zelaya/533/

Kathryn A

I also like the Lyra Botanical Solid Perfume from Illuminated Perfumes. Buying this product helps support the reduction of chemicals in farming and manufacturing. Solid perfumes tend to last, reducing trash, and the compact is a keepsake, rather than a throwaway.

Karin Grow

I LOVE the butterfly painted panel, the dandelion necklace, and the coffee cup cozy. All of this stuff makes me pretty happy though. I'm already a pretty green person, but this would help because it's three less things I need to buy.

MonkeyGurrl

:( Couldn't find the store for papermode. Mebbe I'm saving money?

jenn m.

I sooooo want some of these recycled wine glasses from Rewined Recycled Glassware. What an incredibly hip glass for your cupboards, and you are saving glass from the landfill at the same time!

Love the Lulu Bug Jewelry.

Allyson L

Whoops! Forgot the the link for the pica pica piece I selected! http://cosaverde.com/store/picapicajewelry/28/

Xmittens

I just got my first laptop and I need a pretty case for it- blytheking's are awesome. As a big fan of both fabric and reusing everything until it is completely fallen apart, I love that they are made out of vintage materials that are in great repair. Will last a long time (then I will still probably cut it into rags years down the road)

MonkeyGurrl

I love the Songbird from Dolan Geiman. I think hanging it on my wall will reduce my need to watch t.v.

Allyson L

Also forgot the link for the giant tacky pushpins by live bites--yeesh, I need to wake up! http://cosaverde.com/store/olivebites/730/

Emily

Wow, I love the Eco Laundry soap! The all-natural ingredients plus handmade goodness helps to reduce the amount of energy used to create such an awesome product. Plus the name of the scent is sweet soundtrack, how cool is that?!

Fork Easels! What a clever idea!

Heather V.

The recycled wine bottle glasses from Rewined Recycled Glassware are simply BRILLIANT.

Is there a better way to drink wine than in the beautifully-recycled vessel it came in? Eco-friendly, unique, and handcrafted.

Stephanie C

Wow, what an awesome giveaway!

I love the Knit Mug Cozy from KnitStorm - it totally fits the "reduce" and "reuse" categories perfectly. You're reusing your mug and sleeve, and reducing the amount of waste produced. And it's so much cuter than any cardboard sleeve! :)

MonkeyGurrl

LOVE the Reusable Cleaning Cloths by EcoKate at KnitStorm. They are gorgeous, and a good way to reduce my paper towel consumption.

Kathleen A.

What a wonderful giveaway! I love the Naturalist Necklaces from Pica Pica Jewelry
http://cosaverde.com/store/picapicajewelry/

Such a great combination of antique glass vials with found natural objects that seem increasingly precious and fragile.

Allyson L

The origami lucky star charm bracelet made from junk mail by paperelle is simply brilliant! http://cosaverde.com/store/paperelle/897/ I love origami and I love that paperelle has found a way to recycle junk mail into something beautiful!

MonkeyGurrl

:) The Angel Wings Onesie from cloud9 design would reduce my need to purchase a baby shower giftie from target!

jenn m.

Copacabanas pattern tags are adorable. What a creative way to reuse those awesome old patterns!

Allyson L

The happy days vintage glass necklace by truche is reuse and recycling at its most elegant. http://cosaverde.com/store/truche/438/

Janet R

The "Rewined" Recycled glasses from Cosa Verde are clever and quite beautiful to anyone who's looked at an empty colored glass bottle and wished they could hang onto it for a while!

MonkeyGurrl

Stunning - the Jasmine Green Tea Shrug from Tickled Pink Knits. Plus, it'll keep me warm, reducing my need for a heater at my desk!

Lisa B.

I love the bicycle chain wall art from Re-Bicycle, and love the clock they fashioned by reusing a large gear and mounting it to wood. It would remind me to exercise, plus the gear is shaped like a flower--sweet!

jenn m.

The circle fawn necklace from figs and ginger is incredible. Reclaimed silver? Even better!

MonkeyGurrl

I'd recycle the Recycled Skateboard Coaster from 2ReVert to a skaterchick I know - She'd just plotz.

Stephanie C

eee! I love the cases from blytheking's shop - http://cosaverde.com/store/blytheking/

They're awesomely adorable, and unique since they're recycled - made from reused vintage fabrics. Eco-friendly and stylish!

MonkeyGurrl

Eco Laundry Soap from Eco Everyday - they say it for me: 56 Loads!!

Raffaella  A.S.

First of all, I love green detergent and I'd like to try the Eco Laundry Soap from Eco Everyday
- by washing my clothes gently I'd reduce their consumption and make them last more. :)

jenn m.

Lulu Bugs Jewelry has a beautiful line of jewelry using reclaimed silver. The dandelion necklace in the giveaway is one of my faves of their designs!! (crossing fingers)

MonkeyGurrl

How adorable. The Tiny Genuine Beach Stone Sets from StoneMe would make a great necklace/earring set.

Allyson L

I love a lot of the pieces at lulu bug jewelry, but as a big city girl, I think the concrete flowers necklace is my favorite. http://cosaverde.com/store/truche/438/ And the silver is reclaimed--another R!

Erin Prais-Hintz

Me? I like the Hand-drilled Stone Beads from StoneMe. Something so simple and often overlooked can be the best way to reduce your footprint on the earth!

Thanks for the opportunity!
Enjoy the day!

The Lemon yellow mojo tote from Pouch is just too cute; it makes me happy just to look at it. That's gotta be green.

Ashley

Earrings made out of an old skateboard. What a cool idea! That's one less thing in a landfill.

http://cosaverde.com/store/2revert/382/

Cate R

I LOVE the download-able stationery from up up creative! Reduce - use as need instead of having extra paper goods sitting around.

MonkeyGurrl

The Smooth Road Tread bicycle tire belt is cool; I need a belt to keep me from buying new jeans.

BrendaLea

Dolan Geiman uses salvaged wood, found items and other recycled products in his works.

Allyson L

Awesome! This bicycle tire belt with hybrid tread by re-bicycle is ingenious recycling--and it's cool 'cause it kinda looks like a snake! http://cosaverde.com/store/rebicycle/918/

MonkeyGurrl

I think my favorite print from up up creative is Green Flowers. They're green, and they're green! :)

Allyson L

All-natural and simply beautiful, these unusual notion beach stones by stone me would be wonderful for use as buttons or beads. http://cosaverde.com/store/stoneme/585/

MonkeyGurrl

I love the Belle Sleeveless Hoodie from Kaya Now. So the wee monkey gurl can keep warm and use less heating too!

Amber

Dandelion necklace from lulu bug. Made in reclaimed silver. A really neat process! And designs inpired by nature :)

Allyson L

Hilarious! I never thought you could recycle skateboards--let alone as jewelry or this awesome belt buckle! http://cosaverde.com/store/2revert/383/

MonkeyGurrl

The etched Buddha candle holder from Rewined cuts down on electricity AND lets me get my Zen on!

Allyson L

So elegant. So lovely. So organic! The jasmine green tea shrug by tickled pink knits http://cosaverde.com/store/tickledpinkknits/130/

Alissa Harvey

So happy to see SweetBeets in the mix--I'm already a huge fan! And as a fellow paper artist I appreciate their use of 100% post-consumer recycled paper!

MonkeyGurrl

Clever idea - the reusable food bags from Kootsac will go to the store with the hubband. Finally, I'll be able to be rid of ALL THOSE PLASTIC BAGS!!!

Amanda Toris

Olive Bites! RECYCLE! I love the idea of taking something old, and turning it into something new and beautiful. Her recycled cork necklaces are really beautiful!

Kim Gray

I love Earth Cadets Tote's - You can re-use them, they are made of recycled materials and this reduces the use of plastic bags! Sorted! ;)

MonkeyGurrl

Fork card holders from DinnerTimeChimes. Very clever, and I bet they'd make good *picture* holders as well.
