Adrienne has her eye on the table with a tips for how to make it pretty and green! Whaddya think?
I love stumbling on products that I didn't realize had been "green-ized" yet. Like placemats. Dear, underestimated and surprisingly useful placemats. Good for spicing up a table setting, good for catching spills, and (now) good for the environment.
Here are some of my favorite top finds:
Mosaic Recycled Placemat from CB2 $6.95 each. Made of shredded juice boxes that have been compressed and made water-resistant, these placemats don't just look good, they're a modern recycling marvel.
Napkin Catch Placemat from Branch $19. There's a built-in napkin holder! That's enough for this placemat to be included on any 'best of' list, but the fact that's its made of 30% post-industrial waste doesn't hurt either.
Fetch! Jumbo Pet Placemat from o.r.e. $11.95. Don't forget fido! He deserves an eco-friendly option for his doggie bowl too. Made of recycled rubber, they also come in a smaller size.
Paper Table Placemats from 3r Living $24. These placemats are waterproof, cannot be torn and---best part--- made from tree-free paper. They're 100% recyclable and provide great graphics for your table top!
