Top 3 Tuesday - Eco-Friendly

Our environment is precious, so I love discovering new products and ways that I can be more 'green'. And one thing we all can do to help our environment is to purchase great eco-friendly items! :) So today I have 3 eco-friendly shops to share with you all that I think will knock your socks off!

First up is Nature Favors, a fabulous shop that I wish I had known about when I got married. Just look at these Bird Seed Heart Favors:

I think these are a great idea for a wedding favor...natural, eco-friendly and something people would actually use and enjoy.

For my wedding we did give out small plants (which were also our centerpieces) as favors for our guests.

Since my wedding is over though, I have my eye on these great items from Nature Favors...the Gingerbread Man Earthbloom Christmas ornament and the Bird Seed Star Ornaments.


They are both reasonably priced and would be a great little gift for co-workers, teachers, or an extra addition to any Christmas gift. I LOVE that they can be used as ornaments and then once it is time for the Christmas tree to come down you can hang the star outside for the birds and plant the gingerbread to grow some wildflowers. Nature Favors has some fantastic eco-friendly items, right?!

Now let me show you what Stepping Stones has to offer! I was drawn to Stepping Stones' shop after I saw this gorgeous beach stone jewelry.

I just love when artists/crafters take something as simple as a rock and take it's natural beauty to a whole new level. This particular piece is sold but Tracy can do custom orders if you love this piece like I do! :)

However, Stepping Stones has a ton of great pieces already in stock too...like these:

Tracy and her family find these stones off the Rhode Island coast and in keeping with the eco-friendly theme they also make sure to package their items with recycled materials.

And the third eco-friendly shop I want to share with you today is Eco-lectic Events which offers items that are eco-friendly, upcycled, recycled, reclaimed, or repurposed and fully customizable. I love the Moss Pomanders and Plantable Pillow Boxes with natural soaps.



But my absolute favorite item from Eco-lectic Events is the Modern Tapioca Wood Blooms.

Aren't these stunning?! A beautiful centerpiece for any event or home! :)

Eco-lectic Events offers volume discounts on most items and free shipping on all paper place cards/tags so be sure to check out the shop to see what else they have to offer.

Leave these environmentally friendly shops a little love! And please share any other eco-friendly shops that you enjoy in the comments section too!

I'll be back tomorrow with a new project! Enjoy your day!
