We should all do our part to help the environment. Perhaps you’ve wanted to, but you didn’t know where to start. That’s understandable. There are certain items that you may not have known come in "green" or eco-friendly options, like bathrobes and bedding. (I know I didn’t know!) That’s why we consulted the experts over at, the Internet’s largest portal for green and eco-friendly products. Started in 2006, BuyGreen only sells products that meet their own rigorous quality standards. All of these products are available via


ECOlunchbox Tri Bento

Take your lunch on the go with a three-layer stainless-steel bento box arrangement. The layers clip together and can be transported using the 100% organic cotton drawstring bag. This green product has been used for generations in India.

Dishwasher-safe. The drawstring bag comes in seven different colors. ($27)

License Plate Wine Caddy

Wonder what happens to some of your license plates when they are retired? The Littlearth company has repurposed some of them into wine caddies! Choose a Florida wine caddy or any other state you want! It also features felt lining, a nylon strap and an elastic holder for a bottle opener. ($59)

SNUG Oil Slick Chair

This chair, repurposed from a real oil drum, was inspired by the 2010 Gulf oil spill. This lounge chair and Ottoman can be "packed" into its original oil drum shape, but you bought it so you can sit in it, right? The chair and Ottoman piece are upholstered with soy foam and reused black leather. Chair seat has a 37 inch pitch. ($2,800)

Modular Storage Cubes Plus

These storage cubes make a statement not only by their colors (and there are nine to choose from!), they also say, "hey, this apartment is very orderly and presentable!" These storage cubes are made 100% from recycled paper and are water-resistant. Peel, stick, and done! They can be mounted to the wall and can hold up to 50 pounds. ($133)

Carol Berry Dinner Table

This kitchen centerpiece is made from the agricultural fibers of the sorghum plant. It allows sorghum farmers to earn extra money as these fibers were considered unusable before. Low-VOC finishes and the KR Bond adhesive used in the table’s production translates to minimal formaldehyde emissions, which means a healthy indoor environment for you. 66 inches long by 36 inches wide by 30 inches high. ($2,299)

Organic Lightweight Cotton Bathrobes

These bathrobes, cut in the kimono style and are one size fits all, are made from Pure eco_robeFiber-brand organic combed cotton. Pure Fiber insists that this bathrobe is not only comfortable, it is also high-quality and durable. Choose from nine different colors, ranging from white to ecru to sage to coral. Ties with a wrap-around belt. ($58)

Organic Cotton Herringbone Throw

Another relaxation favorite from Pure Fiber, this cotton fabric is taken from bamboo, which took engineers over two years to figure out how to extract. This translates into a comfortable softness that can be enjoyed either on a bed, sofa, or your favorite chair. Woven with white fringe at the ends. ($112)

Organic Cotton Sheet Set

This 300-count sheet set is made from 100% organic cotton sateen. Certified 100% organic, this fabric was processed free of dyes and chemicals, and as a plus, it is hypoallergenic. Even the packaging is recycled and biodegradable. Machine washable like any other sheets. Sizes range from twin to California king. ($139 twin, $149 full, $159 queen, $179 king and California king)
