I often discover wonderful green things that I love and love to share. Here’s what I’m obsessed with this month:
Endangered Species iPhone case from Anicase
When I finally gave in after two years and got a new iPhone, I needed a new case, but I wanted to be thoughtful about it. First I bought this sustainable wood iPhone case reminiscent of a Leica camera. It got lots of compliments … until I dropped it and it broke into pieces. Kind of misses the point, right?
Then Daily Candy turned me on to Anicase, which makes adorable endangered animal iPhone cases. Choose your animal, and 10% gets donated to protecting tigers, pandas and more. Inside, you find a map of where your chosen animal lives, with how many are left in the world and how it’s being harmed.
People love this case, especially the little ears that stick up! Just note that I wasn’t able to find information on what exactly it is made out of, but I suspect plastic.
My apartment is almost always cold, especially when I get out of a steamy shower at seven in the morning! So I needed a robe with serious fluff. Agatha of A Good Hostess Knows When to Use the F-Word told me that Restoration Hardware has the fluffiest robes ever, but investigation revealed they are not organic. Sad news indeed.
No matter, I bought a robe from Green Robes and it is great! It falls right past my knees, has a heavy, yummy weave of organic Turkish cotton, and big arms that feel like a hug. It comes in a whole range of colors, including bright white or a creamy, unbleached white like I have. The website is a little jank, but don’t let that scare you off.
The Battalion Pants
These pants by The Battalion are literally the best pants I’ve ever had. The bamboo, organic cotton and spandex pants are a bit pricey, but I promise the price-per-wear will be pennies by they time you are done.
First of all, they look really nice. The details like the belt loops and pockets give them a classy feel. They are thick enough that nobody can see your underwear through them, unlike many leggings. And they are the softest things I’ve ever felt, with a fleecy inside that feels like pajamas.
They are the perfect traveling pants, but I wear these probably twice a week, and to NYFW as well.
