As part of the journey to go plastic-free or more eco-friendly, we come across lots of people who are doing really awesome stuff. We often find things that we simply cannot stock and sell ourselves. Whatever the reason that we can't stock them, these are products that are amazing and we can personally recommend. (Plus, full disclosure - we do earn commission if you buy through the links below.)

Allbirds: These shoes and clothes rock, are as sustainable as can be, and can support even the busiest shop owner throughout an entire day! Lots of options for support and comfort, and they come in so many colors...
Avocado Green Mattress: These mattresses are designed in Hoboken and handmade in sunny California with only the finest naturally non-toxic and 100% certified organic materials. Their mission is to be the most respected source for organic mattresses and pillows at affordable prices — while maintaining environmentally conscious, ethical and sustainable business practices — to help safeguard your health and protect our planet. Natural mattresses with only the best materials: GOLS organic certified latex sustainably harvested from rubber trees, from organic plantations and facilities that they own; GOTS organic certified wool, prized for its cooling and moisture wicking properties, from a herding collective that they also jointly own; and GOTS organic certified cotton. They also own the factory in Los Angeles, where the organic certified beds are made by hand. In short, the best mattress I've slept on in years. Don't forget the organic cotton pillows.
Pela Case: These smartphone cases are made of plant-based (think flax and hemp), compostable materials, and they will take them back at the end of useful life and compost them for you! I drop my phone OFTEN, and this case has protected my iPhone from all of the spills. Thing is - with all of the phone models and cool designs, there is no way we can carry sufficient inventory for everyone. So click on over through this link next time you need a new phone case and get one that you can feel good about, all while knowing that you can't possibly drop your phone as much as I do.
Plastic Free Future: A nonprofit based in Pacifica, CA, who envisions a world where Earth’s living systems are thriving, and where future generations can live without the burden of plastics threatening their health and environment. A world where sustainable solutions are accessible to all. PFF promotes reusable alternatives to single use plastic, expands local bilingual programs and brings environmental education to underserved communities in the San Francisco Bay Area in addition to supporting Reusable San Mateo County.
Sheets & Giggles: These sheets are made from eucalyptus, which uses up to 96% less water then cotton. Grown on sustainably managed, responsibly governed farms, these eucalyptus trees make a surprisingly soft snuggle zone.
