Local writer and mom Laura Phelan shares her picks for earth-friendly finds.
01 Circle A Lettuce. I love to eat from local sources and first discovered this amazing lettuce at a farmers market. We have them deliver to our house in winter. CircleALettuce.com
02 Native Deodorant. Our entire family uses this deodorant and as a mom I don’t have to worry about chemicals. There’s a new teen scent we’re ordering for the girls next! NativeCos.com
03 Savannah Bee Company. Hands down obsessed with the Royal Jelly Body Butter®. My girls absolutely love their lip balm. They do a lot for saving the bee population and are Georgia-based. Savannahbee.com/royal-jelly-body-butter-original-formula
04 Athleta Recycled Cropped Jogger. I love pants I can throw on after a good run that are comfy, stylish, and eco-friendly like Athleta’s new super fabric made from post-consumer plastic bottles. How cool is that?!? Athleta.Gap.com
05 Zeal Tortoise Sunglasses. Who doesn’t love a good pair of tortoise polarized sunglasses? Now throw in that they are made from cellulose acetate which is more easily biodegradable, and win win! Amazon.com
06 Smartglass Gold Sea Glass Necklace. This Atlanta-based company makes the coolest pieces from recycled bottles and this sea glass necklace reminds me of growing up in Florida. Perfect in the warmer months. SmartGlassJewelry.com
07 Avocado Green Mattress. My husband and I are looking for a new mattress and I have been eyeing this one. Non-toxic, eco-friendly, AND comfortable – we’re in! AvocadoGreenMattress.com
