1000s of Toxic Free Products & Websites
Indoor house shoes for men, women and children, made of handcrafted wool felt by artisans. Also felted insoles. Many nice colors and neutrals. “Kyrgies are born of a tradition that is thousands of years old. Kyrgies are produced in Bishkek, Kyrgystan, where wet felting with sheep wool is both a tradition and a necessity. No other textile withstands heat in the summer and the cold, wet winters as well as wool felt. Because of this, the Kyrgyz people have been felting for centuries, passing this skill on from one generation to the next. The Kyrgyz women who make our Kyrgies use felting techniques that have been developed over thousands of years. They mix their hands in water, wool, and 100% natural soap, not harmful toxic chemicals. By sourcing our felt products in Kyrgyzstan, we are supporting a sustainable cultural legacy.”
A minimalistic and all-natural car air eco-purifier & freshener.”Filled with with 100% bamboo charcoal.” Lasts 1 year. Fragrance- and allergen-free.
A “culinary tote collection” of bags and wraps designed simply and specifically for carrying food. I love their Grand Tote, which is wide enough to carry a variety of vegetables from the farmer’s market or garden, without piling them on top of each other. “Sewn by women in San Francisco, the Aplat collection of washable, reusable culinary totes is manufactured with empathy, applying a zero-waste origami design using 100% organic cotton.”
“The first online farmers market where you can order your food directly from your local farmer, have it harvested/prepared on order and receive it the next business day. You save time driving to the farmer’s market and you get better quality food with more character that is much fresher than in the supermarket. And it’s always 100% local.” Great idea. There were no farmers on this service in my zip code.
A variety of reusable household textile products made from high quality hemp fiber, including coffee and tea bags, drink sleeves, table linens, washcloths and bath products, garden gloves, hats, yarn and twine.
Single Origin, Farm Direct, Whole Leaf Teas. I happened to walk by this store in Berkeley, California and loved it immediately. It completely changed my ideas about tea. “We celebrate this time-honored craftsmanship of the artisanal tea farmers of China, Taiwan, India, and Japan. Every harvest for the past 15 years we have traveled to the finest tea growing regions of Asia to visit family-owned farms to select our handcrafted teas. Each tea in our collection is carefully curated for its complexity, exceptional taste, and spirit. We do this because we are committed to helping sustain these traditional communities and to sharing the treasures of the tea arts with you. And we truly believe that tea can change your life.” Their mission is “to seek out the most skilled tea farmers and producers in each region, and support their craft by bringing their teas to the Western world.” You can meet each farmer on their website. Teas are picked during the peak season and sold as fresh harvests. They even have a questionnaire to help you choose the perfect tea for you. I wish I could live next door.

“Glorious, old fashioned heirloom beans… unique flavors and textures that you don’t find with bland commodity beans..My first harvested heirloom bean was Rio Zape. They were pretty and easy to grow but I had no idea what to expect when I cooked them. They were similar to the pintos I liked but there was so much more going on. Hints of chocolate and coffee mixed with an earthy texture made my head spin.”
A good selection of heirloom beans grown in California. “Beans are cleaned and polished before packing for highest gourmet quality.”
