Tired of the paper or plastic dilemma? Get yourself an EZ Bag.

We were at a dinner party at Julie and Patrick's house on Friday. Another couple at the party regaled us with their plans for a green wedding this fall in Colorado. Among the items on their must-have list? Recycled paper invitations, a LEED-certified location, and EZ Bags for everyone.

Wait a minute, you say. What are EZ Bags? I'm glad you asked.

Indigo Handloom: Fashion with a Mission

smitapaul2.jpgIndigo Handloom founder Smita Paul always had an independent streak. A former professional journalist, she found she did her best work as a freelancer. As she explains:

I love the freedom and adventure of coming up with an idea and seeing it to fruition. The thrill of watching an idea grow - there is no bigger high!

wooly_sequins_desc.jpgThis same spirit led Paul to found Indigo Handloom, a Brooklyn-based importer of gorgeous handloomed scarves and fabrics from India and South Asia. Handloom is part of the growing eco-textiles movement because it leaves no environmental footprint and requires no energy other than human energy to produce.

Purchase one of these Indigo Handloom's scarves, and know that your money is helping to support artisans and craftspeople around the world.

Until Kara Organic Cotton Baby Blankets and Burp Cloths

burpcloth.jpgWhen Michelle Savin's son was sensitive to chemicals and allergens we're exposed to in daily life, she was inspired to create a natural and organic nursery for him. In 2006, she founded a company that would allow her to share her findings with other parents interested in organic living. She named the company Until Kara, after her youngest daughter.

Until Kara makes organic cotton baby blankets, burp cloths and cotton and wool mattresses, as well as simple wooden baby rattles. The products are intentionally minimalist and natural, like the values they are meant to embody.

Available at Until Kara.
