WAF’s Five For Friday – The day after Earth Day edition

ecosumo bag and bottle Earth Day’s 40th anniversary was yesterday, but who says we cant be Eco-friendly year round? Here are five fab eco-finds we know you’ll love…

1. Ecosumo is the on-line, one-stop green marketplace. Ecosumo sells everything from apparel to household cleaning items. All of their packaging is made from 100% recycled post consumer waste and they also invest in green technologies and non-profit green organizations. We love their Envirosax reusable shopping bag and water bottle combo. (pictured)

3. Earthsake sources natural products including mattresses, bed linens, kids products and more and makes them available in one convenient location on the web. The family-owned business was founded in 1990 in honor of Earth Day’s 20th anniversary.

4. RealOrganicSkin.com carries a line of chemical-free body care products called simply, Skin.

The line includes products for the hand, lips, feet and body.
