Earth Friendly Spotlight: House and Home

As makers we take great care in selecting our materials. For many that means finding local sources, organic or sustainable products. This week to celebrate the upcoming Earth Day on April 22nd we are sharing daily round ups of eco-friendly, Connecticut made products.

Think Globally, Shop Locally!

Eco-friendly House and Home finds:


"100% linen tea towels, hand stenciled with water based fabric paint. I use 100% linen because it's made from the flax plant. Flax is a natural fiber making flax linen recyclable and biodegradable. It's also incredibly strong and lasts for decades." - Cyn owner of RiverDog Prints
