In this very tough business climate there are still innovations being made, produced and marketed for ‘green’/’sustainable’ products. Remember, just because a product is healthy does not mean that it is made of sustainable materials, and conversely, some products made of sustainable materials still off gas toxic voc’s.
GLASS 2, is making a VERY COOL glass product made of 99% recycled glass. What makes it different from other glass products is that the ‘layering’ of the glass is visible from the edge, creating a wonderful natural pattern. Overall the product looks like pieces of glass floating in water with the layers visible from the side. It is stunning when back lit, leading to natural applications of floating counters, front desk materials, etc. It comes in slabs of 2cm and 3cm in 11 colors and is fabricated by the same fabricators that you use for stone counters. Glass2 is currently available through Pental
Bio Green Clean was introduced to me by my husband and I have to say that this is the ultimate in a cleaning product. It works on everything from counters, floors, stone, leather, metal, teeth, blood, automobiles, mirrors, appliances, coffee machines, etc. AND it really works!. AND, by the way, it is 100% plant derived and is so healthy you can eat it. (It is not really recommended that you eat it, but the MSDS sheet states that you may experience some diarrhea due to the ‘emulsification of grease and oil in the digestive tract’) You can obtain the product directly through www.biogreenclean.com
It is truly inspiring to see people establishing new businesses and producing products in a poor economic market that are both sustainable and safe! A colleague recently said to me, ‘some people are still wringing their hands and crying about this economy, and others are out there making lemonade from the lemons they have been given.’ What kind of person are you? I challenge you and myself to rise to the occasion and make 2012 the best come back year ever!
Keeping Green and Positive,
