Kitchen Compost Pails

B00061N0S2.01._AA280_SCLZZZZZZZ_.jpg
If you're thinking about composting, you should also consider a kitchen compost pail so you can keep kitchen scraps for your compost pile. Here, the key is finding one that will fit on your countertop or underneath, store your scraps, and not smell up your kitchen.

I like this stainless steel compost pail from Nor Pro. It's small and sturdy, and traps odors with a small charcoal filter disk that fits in the lid. Moreover, it's easy to clean and won't chip as you transport it out to your compost pile or clean it in the sink.

I don't think I'd fill it the way they have in this picture, though. When you squish the top down, you're headed for some yuck.

Buy a Nor Pro Stainless Steel Compost Pail.

Eco-Friendly Toilets: Waste Not, Want Not

18green.1901.jpgAmerican flush away nearly 4.8 billion gallons of water every day, accounting for nearly 40% of our total indoor water consumption. Turns out toilets are "a big player" for homeowners interested in going green, according to author Florence Williams.

Writing in this Sunday's New York Times, Williams describes "the latest in eco-friendly elimination" -- from waterless urinals to superlow-flush toilets. She discusses her own experience with the Sun-Mar nonelectric composting toilet.

I didn’t want anything to do with it at first. The idea of human waste sitting in one spot — right next to you — for months at a time is difficult to stomach, but I had little choice. Our solar-powered summer cabin has limited running water and soils that are too shallow for a septic system.

LED Lamps Infinity Flat Head Floor Lamp

B000LBXH7Q.01-A8METEVCB05GJ._AA280_SCLZZZZZZZ_-1.jpgYou light up my life. Or the room at least.

The Infinity Flat Head Floor Lamp contains 20 LEDs, but uses only 2-watts of electricity. We like its minimalist look, not to mention its energy efficiency.

According to the blurb on Amazon, the LEDs on these lamps never have to be replaced, saving you time, money and storage space. Plus, the LEDs use a fraction of the power (80-90%) required by conventional filament bulbs.

Infinity Flat Head Floor Lamps available at Amazon.

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.
