God Hates Bags Organic Tote

god hates bags

We absolutely love the two-fold message of this handy little tote! First message: Save the environment by taking your own re-usable bags out shopping! Plastic bags are one of the most wasteful by-products of our plastic obsessed society, and their use should be illegal! (Plastic bag bans are becoming more prevalent.) The other message that we love about this bag, is it’s satirical jab at homophobic bigt, Fred Phelps, whose God Hates Fags campaign spreads its hateful message all across the country. This God Hates Bags bag, by Revel & Riot, points out just how ridiculous Fred Phelps and his mindless followers are, and it points out that plastic bags are pretty evil too!

chrome-waterfall-led-bathroom-sink-faucet

This is a cool idea if you want to give your bathroom a modern futuristic feel. The specially designed high quality LED faucet with three beautiful colors works in that the water flow automatically changes the color with the temperature changed. The light only works while the faucet is open and when the water is 0~30℃ – it glows blue; when it is 30~40℃ it glows green; and when the water is hotter, at around 41~50℃, it glows red.
Durable ceramic valves on this LED faucet ensure a service life of more than 600,000 times that of a regular faucet.

hoffritz-eco-friendly-bamboo-cutting-board

Bamboo is one of the best renewable materials in the world, what with it being 16% harder than maple and 1/3 the weight of oak. That makes bamboo one of the most superior materials that can be used to make cutting boards. This great-looking cutting board is not only ecologically friendly, it also resists both moisture and scratching for an easy to clean and maintain cutting surface.

teardrop-vessel-crafted-systems

The simple teardrop vessel from Crafted Systems is the kind of eco-friendly item that looks great anywhere. Beautifully crafted and designed, the =interlocked wool squares are elegant without being over-designed. The vessel is made by women at the YWCA shelter in Portland, Oregon, to “economically enabling and empowering them.” The bowls, vases, and rugs are made from natural wool using die-cut and water jet-cut technologies — and no two are exactly alike.
