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.
    
Sustainability
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.

The Ultimate Green Store

Organic Cotton & Eco-Wool Mattress Topper


Holy Lamb Organics offers a unique line of natural handmade bedding products, featuring all organic cotton fabric and pure wool fill instead of synthetics or down.
       

Treat yourself to a luxurious nights’ rest by adding a quilted mattress topper! Holy Lambs Mattress Toppers are filled with soft, pure organic eco-wool nibs lined with a soft, organic cotton fabric cover. Eco-wool is easier to wash than conventional wool products because the entire perimeter is hand tufted every 6-8” to prevent the wool from shifting around during the wash cycle. Eco-wool is incredibly absorbent and will wick moisture away and keep you dry at an even temperature while you sleep. As an added benefit, eco-wool will never harbor dust mites because dust mites don’t like wool!       

This mattress topper is available in several gradients of thickness depending on your preference for softness. Choose from 2” (Deep Sleep) or 3” (Ultimate Deep Sleep) generous inches of pure, eco-wool filling.
       

These mattress toppers are compatible with any depth mattress. The topper sits on top of the mattress. With a fitted sheet on top of the mattress pad, they do not slip but stay nicely and evenly on the mattress. The manufacturer has found that this design provides a better fit and works better than toppers which are fitted to account for any depth mattress since the fitted ones can either be too tight or have extra material that slips around if the mattress is too deep or not deep enough.
       

All mattress topper sizes are available in all thickness options. Please note that King 2″ and Twin through King 3″ must be professionally cleaned as they are too big for a washing machine.
       

For a limited time The Ultimate Green Store is offering free shipping for orders over $75 on all bedding items. use code: TUGSBEDDING

Elephant Magnet Chalk Board
by Dan Carmichael

       
Now this is a groovy handcrafted in the USA find. I was tickled to come across these little chalkboards, so stinking adorable.
       

       

Each chalk board is individually hand crafted made of a combination of slate and steel. The chalkboards come with a hand made ‘spring’ to hold the chalk and a piece of chalk. An extremely strong magnet is attached to the back of each chalkboard, making it the perfect accessory for your fridge, locker, or wherever else you can place it.
       

Due to the hand made nature of the pieces, some variation from what’s pictured may exist.
