Crib and "modern children's furniture" made from sustainable materials. "We are passionate about working as a family to craft furniture for other families. Their design aesthetic is "clean, simple, and tasteful. Our children are the inspiration for each new design and each piece is crafted to have that personal feel." Sustainability is expressed in both design and materials. "Our furniture is designed with longevity and reusability as an essential criterion. We offer adjustable seating that grows with your child, table tops that are reusable and also are adjustable, Crib that convert to toddler beds, space saving trundle beds, and storage solutions that are multifunctional and adaptable to a myriad of styles and conditions. We create designs that are crafted to be timeless and can easily be passed from one child to the next…Argington uses 99% wood products in it's furniture, with virtually no mdf, particle board, flake board or other similar engineered wood products.

The most luxurious eco-friendly bedlinens I’ve seen. Organic cotton bedlinens come in a rainbow of solid colors, in an Indian print applied by hand with wood blocks, and other natural designs and in various weights. Natural color linen bedlinens contain both fine Irish and Belgian linen. And alpaca–yes, soft alpaca sheets and pillowcases–from animals grazed on land that is free of fertilizers and pesticides, where the herders practice a philosophy of “Pachamama” to develop harmony between man and the mother earth and to preserve the alpacas’ welfare. Silk bedlinens–and handstitched quilts, shams and bedskirts in vibrant colors–are finished with organic nut oil soap instead of formaldehyde. All can be custom monogrammed. Packaging is minimal packaging out of only recycled materials that can also be recycled or reused. All the eco-benefits of each product are fully explained. “We video tape in person, in all countries, all human resources that go into the manufacturing of our draperies. We guarantee good working conditions where happy employees take pride in producing our quality healthy products for a healthy planet…We have a corporate commitment to alternative labor sources.

I saw a live demonstration of this product at the Natural Products Expo and I really liked it. You may have seen similar kits sold in malls that allow you to buff your nails to get a shiny polished look on your nails. This kit costs more, but it is a medical grade kit that actually makes your nails stronger and healthier in addition to giving them a beautiful shine. The shine also lasted longer than the cheaper kits. If you have a problem with split nails or cracking cuticles, this kit will help your nails heal naturally.
