FUZFARM - EcoFriendly Home Products - Review & Give-Away

Tuesday, July 14, 2009

I don't know if you know who Josh Jakus is. I first discovered him through his fabulous, wool UM Bags. They are completely unique in that they transform into a flat surface when not being used. This allows them to lay completely flat for dry cleaning, storage, or travel. And when they are zipped, they are absolutely chic and fashionable.

Well, keeping up with his unique designs, Josh has now created FuzFarm products. At FuzFarm.com you will find provocative household accessories that use recycled or excess materials whenever possible. Plus, they manufacture in the USA to meet customer demand, keeping their business lean and local.

One of the coolest pieces has to be the Hug Placemats. They have built-in "Napkin Hugs" in the shape of people to help make a table setting complete. You simply pop them out and put them to work! And when done, pop them back in place. They come in eye-catching colors, materials and "gender shapes":
  • Green Felt Boy or Girl
  • Pink Felt Girl
  • Blue Felt Boy
  • Black Rubber Boy or Girl
You can also purchase the napkin hugs separately from the placemats.

But I absolutely love Dusty, the chalkboard, from FuzFarm.com. He is so personable! You can buy Dusty as a boy or girl, I received him as a boy. I put a hook on his back and hung him in the kitchen. He has a leash so that he can "walk" his dog eraser. I bought some chalk from my local supermarket for .99 cents - and then I started leaving reminders on the chalkboard! Like, "Call Doctor" and "Clean Patio". What's even cute is the little dog will hold your piece of chalk while not in use!

Dusty is made from non-formaldehyde, 100% recycled wood core. The eraser is cut from scrap felt. He measures 10.5 x 18.5 x 0.25 in. He should arrive with wall pegs for hanging. Dusty costs $29.00.

If you prefer a corkboard, you might be interested in Corky. That way you can pin up notes! He's perfect for a home office and is also made from excess material - non-formaldehyde, 100% recycled wood MDF core. He costs $29.00.

You will also want to check out the site for other ecofriendly unique items for home and office! And don't forget to grab an UM Bag to hold it all ... or at least your wallet!

    This covers all the bases = saves you money, helps the environment, helps your health, makes you feel better, it's so easy to do and it costs less than $50.00; Save money and the Earth and be clean at the same time! Add Bathroom Bidet Sprayers to all your bathrooms. I think Dr. Oz on Oprah said it best: "if you had pee or poop on your hand, you wouldn't wipe it off with paper, would you? You'd wash it off” Available at www.bathroomsprayers.com with these you won't even need toilet paper any more, just a towel to dry off! Don’t worry, you can still leave some out for guests and can even make it the soft stuff without feeling guilty. It's cheap and can be installed without a plumber; and runs off the same water line to your toilet. You'll probably pay for it in a few months of toilet paper savings. As for water use a drought is always a concern and must be dealt with prudently but remember the water use of industrial users far exceeds the water use of household users and in the case of toilet paper manufacture it is huge. The pollution and significant power use from that manufacturing process also contributes to global warming so switching to a hand bidet sprayer and lowering your toilet paper use is very green in multiple ways.
