My #1 choice for cooking eggs, this cookware is made of aluminum with a 70% recycled steel handle and a safe, petroleum-free ceramic nonstick finish. I have two of these pans and use them mostly to cook eggs. The finish is so nonstick I would call it "slippery," in fact, I have had food slip right out of the pan while pushing it around with a spoon, so I usually flip the food now instead of using utensils. (This link goes to the 12-piece cookware set, but the page has links to other individual pieces.)
Wool"underquilt" mattress pads with cotton ticking.
Handcrafted 100% organic duvets, mattress pads and pillows, covered with cotton and filled with soft alpaca wool (70% alpaca with 30% sheep's wool to hold it all together). Alpaca is "warmer, stronger, lighter and cleaner than sheep's wool…There are no chemicals, dyes or bleaches used when the wool is processed. Our materials are natural, renewable resources that do not pose a threat to the environment."
Charming nontoxic soy wax crayons in beautiful colors, made in the shape of pebbles. Slight indentations allow small fingers to color in large, wide strokes. Designed to strengthen the tripod drip muscles, preparing fingers and hands for pen and pencil use. Specially designed to help children with fine motor disorders to improve their tripod grip. I really like these colors and the fact that that the pebble shape allows you to fill areas with color in fine or bold strokes. Much more versatile artistically than a stick crayon and they feel natural in your hand.
Bon Ami Cleanser has been a mainstay nontoxic product since 1885. This was the first nontoxic cleaning product I used. Today they have the original 1886 formula of plain feldspar and soap, the modern Powder with limestone, feldspar, biodegradable cleaning agents, soda ash and baking soda. AND they now have new Dish Soap, All Purpose Cleaner and a Liquid Cleanser, all of which I love. Can be used to clean almost any surface–“hasn’t scratched yet!” You find a store near you on the website or order online.
Percale, damask, sateen, and flannel bed linens made from organically-grown cotton, in a variety of colors and patterns."Every fiber of cotton we use is produced in accordance with the standards set forth by the International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements (IFOAM)…All our organic cotton is grown in India by family farmers organized in cooperatives. We willingly pay premium prices to these small-scale growers for their organic cotton fiber because this encourages organic practices that protect not only the environment, but the farmers, their families, and their communities from exposure to toxic agricultural chemicals. Also, by purchasing their cotton at a better price per kilo, we help support local and economically sustainable production."
Award-winning artisinal cheeses made in Pt. Reyes, California, from local organic milk and cream. When I used to live down the road from Pt. Reyes, I would go to this creamery and buy fresh cheese–mmmmmmmm!–and I've been to the farm where they get their milk. Now they have expanded with a store in San Francisco and one in Washington DC, and carry organic and artisinal cheeses from all over the world. On their website they also have a comprehensive "Cheese Library" with pictures of each variety and descriptions which include wine pairings, which you can search by milk type, country, raw or pasturized, and even cheesemaker!
