Green and Organic

We are pleased that we're finding more "green" and natural gifts for the gallery. A few of the new pieces are our new organic "onesies" for our baby section.

Made by hand in the USA.

These are VERY cute and come in 2 sizes.

Our favorite is Peace Baby and a close 2nd is Beach Baby. For more information go to our website.

Then we found these great enviro sax that roll up very small and you can carry one in your purse.

No more forgetting your reuseable bag when you go to the grocery.

$8.50 - Save a tree!

Bamboo has helped humankind since time began for shelter, weapons, food, and medicine. Something about bamboo fulfills a basic human need of getting back to nature and a more simple life. There are 12,000 documented species & varieties.

Bamboo is actually a grass that grows to a harvestable height between 3 - 5 years. Some species grow up to 2 feet per day. After harvesting, bamboo does not require replanting, it has an extensive root system that continually sends up new shoots, naturally replenishing itself, making it one of the most renewable resources known. No old growth forests are touched, no trees are cut.

Bamboo is 16% harder than maple wood, 1/3 lighter in weight than oak, yet in some instances as strong as steel. Bamboo is sustainable, cost effective, and ecologically responsible alternative to the widespread clearcutting of our old growth forests.

Unlike most other hardwoods, it absorbs very little moisture and consequently does not shrink or swell as much making it a superior choice of material for kitchen items.

We think the design of these salad hands is just super.

We will be adding bamboo salad bowls as well, we'll let you know when they come!
