GasHole magnet


Gas_Hole2_1.jpgWe all know them.  The tiny housewife, sitting on her booster seat, driving a giant Escalade, the urban cowboy driving his man-sized Ford F-150 and never, ever uncovering the truck bed.

You can tag them for what they are with this removable GasHole magnet.

eco fashion friday finds – turn up the green

We don’t espouse mindless consumption, but we do occasionally like to perk up our wardrobes and spirits with a stylish indulgence.  Here’s this week’s small, edited collection of eco savvy fashion finds, many of which have a common thread…


(above) – We begin today at the bottom, with highly breathable and thermal regulating eco “shorts” – made from merino wool,  from finisterre.


(above, from L to R)

The bubble look, in soy/ organic cotton/ Spandex;  Sequoia dress (on sale) at Elroy.

With rolling paper dispenser, (how convenient), this street smart Summer Tech Jacket is wind and water resistant; made from a hemp/organic cotton combo and on sale now @ Amsterdam-based, Hemp Works.

Brides can walk down the aisle in a eco chic style without breaking the bank – the limited edition vintage lace bustier and long straight skirt @

Guys can do the sustainable walk in highly renewable, 100-percent hemp pants (black or white) @ hempworks.


(above – accessories, from L to R)

Confurtable Gloves (fingerless/mitten overlay) in hemp/organic cotton/soy knit; in snow, black, raspberry or atlantis (on sale now) at hempworks

and a finishing touch from Etsy – handmade – the hipshack in cotton stripe.

As always, feel free to send us your faves or just jump in…what was that fairly common thread?
