Non-Toxic Glass Wasp Trap

This sturdy, colored glass wasp trap will take a bite out of your yellowjacket or wasp problem. Simply add the included lure, a bit of water, and replace the stopper on the trap. Hang or place in an area with high wasp concentrations. Wasps fly up through the bottom hole, become trapped, and drown in the water. After two weeks replace the lure, or just add sweet liquid (lemonade works fine).
To clean: remove the stopper, empty, and rinse. Easy as can be!
Can be hung, or set on a flat surface. Wasps can fly up into the bottom even when it is sitting on the ground.
Measures 5″ in diameter x 8″ high.
Lure made in USA, trap made in China.
Provides a non-toxic, safe way to control wasps.

Bean Products

Storage Bean Bag Chair
Storage Beanbag: A dual-purpose beanbag and storage system
These days it is hard to find a product that delivers a real new solution in the furniture industry. The patent pending Storage Beanbag by mimish is one of those rare new products that deserve the term innovation. It simultaneously serves as a beanbag and a storage system.
Andrea, a NYC mother of two with kids, needed a solution to de-clutter her own home, and came up with the genius idea of the Storage Beanbag with beans on the top and storage on the bottom. The storage compartment can be used for seasonal clothes, bedding, towels, stuffed animals, costumes, and much more. All unsightly clutter is hidden while you sit on it, use it as an ottoman, or watch the kids play with it. It is perfect for urban spaces, play rooms, bedrooms and dorm rooms where you always seem to lack both storage and seating solutions.
Proudly made in the United States, the Storage Beanbag is 30” in diameter and 17” high. It has a capacity of holding 5,650 cubic inches of storage. It comes in different fabrics and colors to match any room décor. The fully washable micro-suede is available in charcoal, navy blue, dusty rose, white and chocolate. The cotton fabrics are spot clean or dry clean and come in a color for every taste. Organic cotton launches in black, avocado and tomato, pure cotton in erase pink, purple, aqua, medium blue, butternut cup and orange.

Why use hemp in the blankets?
Superior Properties
Hemp has been called the American version of bamboo.
Hemp fiber is one of the strongest and most durable natural textile fibers. Products made from hemp will outlast their competition. Hemp is not only strong but it also holds its shape, stretching less than any other natural fiber on the market. This keeps hemp garments from stretching out or becoming distorted with long term usage. Hemp is known for its durability and also its comfort and style. The more hemp is used, the softer it gets. Hemp doesn’t wear out, it wears in. Hemp is naturally resistant to mold and fading due to ultraviolet light. Because of its porous nature, hemp is more water absorbent, and will dye and retain its color better than any fabric including cotton. This porous nature allows hemp to “breathe,” so that it is cool in warm weather. Furthermore, air which is trapped in the fibers is warmed by the body, making hemp garments naturally warm in cooler weather, making it the perfect material to blend with cotton for a great blanket!
Environmental Advantages
Hemp is a fast growing crop and produces more fiber yield per acre than any other source. Hemp can produce up to 250% more fiber than cotton and up to 600% more fiber than flax using the same amount of land. Hemp grows best in warm tropical zones or in moderately cool, temperate climates, such as the United States. Hemp leaves the soil in excellent condition for any succeeding crop, especially when weeds may be troublesome. Where the ground permits, hemp’s strong roots descend for three feet or more. The roots anchor and protect the soil from runoff, building and preserving topsoil and subsoil structures similar to those of forests. Hemp does not exhaust the soil and hemp plants shed their leaves all through the growing season, adding rich organic matter to the topsoil and helping it retain moisture. Farmers have reported excellent hemp growth on land that had been cultivated steadily for nearly 100 years. There is a movement afoot to allow hemp to be grown as a legal crop in the United States.

Fractal Side Table

Beautiful pieces for any room
This side table is from the Organo collection which uses only natural, renewable materials to create contemporary furnishings with an emphasis on sustainability and health. This table has the following dimensions – 20″ by 20″ by 25″ high.
For a Beautiful Healthy Home – The Organo line from Kirei is elegant contemporary furniture for everyday living. Each of the materials in this product is selected with care to reduce stress on our natural resources and eliminate toxic emissions in our homes.
Kirei is a Japanese word signifying many meanings, including Clean, Pure, Truthful and Beautiful. Kirei uses recycled products and efficient practices to reduce their overall impact on natural resources and the environment. Each of Kirei’s products uses reclaimed, non-toxic materials to lessen their impact on natural resources and contribute to a clean, healthy indoor environment.
Reclaimed Materials – Kirei Board is manufactured from reclaimed agricultural fiber from the Sorghum plant grown around the world for food. The stalks of this plant are usually burned or thrown into landfills after harvest. By using them in the production of Kirei Board, this material is removed from the waste stream, reducing landfill need and air pollution, while giving rural farmers a new source of revenue from a previously unused waste material. Minimal amounts of wood are used as bonding strips, greatly reducing the need for newly harvested wood for building.
Low-VOC Emissions – Formaldehyde has been shown to be harmful indoor air pollutant present in high levels in many indoor spaces. Using Kirei Board and low-VOC finishes helps reduce these formaldehyde emissions and contribute to a healthier indoor environment. Kirei Board emits only trace amounts of naturally occurring formaldehyde existing in all organic materials. The KR Bond adhesive used in the manufacture of Kirei Board does not emit any formaldehyde into the ambient indoor atmosphere.
Kirei and LEED – Kirei Board is made from rapidly renewable, reclaimed agricultural fiber, with a low-VOC emission adhesive. While LEED does not certify materials, kirei board can help your projects gain credit toward LEED certification.
