The lovely Clotilde, of Chocolate & Zucchini, tweeted about the smart, duel-purpose spaghetti measure and trivet you see below (she always finds the best little things) and I followed the link through to the Greeen store. As always when I find a new shop online, I clicked around for an hour, busy falling in love with this thing or that, like the sleek bamboo tray¬†above. It’s intended for the kitchen or entertaining, but I would love it for my desk. No, my dresser. This is probably the perfect jewelry tray I was never looking for and have finally found.


Greeen¬†has aesthetically remarkable pieces and they go so far as to rate each one by how “green” its life cycle is, from manufacture to end-use (whether it’s use requires low-energy and if it can be recycled.) And their suppliers are definitely the kind you want to support whether for their eco-practices or because they “create jobs in small villages and thus limit rural depopulation.” Like I another reason to start buying their things. Don’t check out this store unless you want to buy thing you never realized you needed either.
