Thankfully many people are embracing the “green movement” in creative and innovative ways. But for all of the strides that we have made in fabulous environmentally-friendly materials, the word “sustainable” still illicits the mental images of hemp necklaces, tie-dye, and peace symbols in a lot of people. Not the most attractive visual for an event unless you are in college and paying homage to Jerry Garcia.
You don’t have to throw away style to be sustainable. We came across Matchstick Garden recently and think it is an extremely cool concept…and super cute as well. Each matchstick actually contains tiny seeds within the tip that when planted will soon yield you a lovely flower or herb garden. Who wouldn’t love this as a favor at a party? It’s tiny enough to fit in your pocket or purse. And it doesn’t smell a thing like patchouli. --a
