SSF Showcase

Welcome to the new home of SSF Showcase where you can find all sorts of hip new sustainable products hand picked by SSF Staff. We started this new version of Showcase in the fall of 2007 because we had SO MANY ENTRIES in our former version that it was exhausting some of our member’s bandwidth. We hope you enjoy this new version and that you find its organization even more useful as you research ways to make more sustainable personal lifestyle choices.

Zoica Matei…


Atlanta fashion designer Zoica Matei makes sustainable style look easy…and fabulous. Her line of women’s tunics are ethically made, organic, and truly high style. As an advocate of slow fashion, Zoica makes the most out of her trans-seasonal and timeless designs.

White Apricot

The day has come. Finally, there is a place to get some of the best sustainable style goods around…AT A DISCOUT! That’s right SSF fans, White Apricot offers discounts on all sorts of socially and environmentally responsible apparel, accessories, beauty products, food, etc. They refer to them as “knock your organic socks off” discounts and exclusive offers” and we agree completely. Great sustainable stuff, big discounts…we’re in heaven.

Sutainable Collective


Convoy’s ‘Sustainable Collective’ line is created with broad elements of sustainability in mind and heart. Where do things come from? How is fabric grown? Where is it made? Where is “away” when something is thrown “away”? Convoy’s designers consider sustainability aspects of look, fabrics, color, packaging, labor, and community. Sustainable style at it’s best we say.

Convoy Apparel


environment furniture…

Environment Furniture may have outdone themselves. A chair that Andy Worhal, Betsy Johnson, and Oscar the Grouch would all be proud of. Their Giramundo Swivel Chair is literally the cat’s meow. Who needs faux fur when you have recycled yarn. To top it all off, they are one of our longest running SSFtags.

Play nice for the planetPlanet Happy Toys

Plannet Happy Toys’ motto is “play. learn. sustain.” and we think it is quite fitting. With a website chock full of fun toys and learning objects, they certainly fit within our goal of helping people make more sustainable personal lifestyle choices at home, at work, and at play. Best of all, they have their own Planet Happy criteria for all of their toys as well as ‘badges of honor’ for them as well. Finally, no surprise that a portion of their proceeds go do 1% for the Planet and Trees for the Future.

Eco Interiors

MIOculture tiles at Earthtech

With the holidays rapidly approaching, the good folks at EarthTech Products have created a special section in their online store for the sustainable style enthusiast. They’ve got an impressive variety of goods that will please just about anyone on your list, from solar gadgets to 3D wallpaper to recycled glass table settings. We’re huge fans of the V2 wallpaper from MIOculture (pictured); it’s made from 100% recycled paperboard, and looks fabulous painted or plain, in a small set or an entire wall.

La vie en rose…Zanisa: hold purse

Seems like we always need a little something to keep all those cords and devices from getting jumbled in our backpacks, briefcases, and purses. Designed by Josh Jakus and available on Zanisa, this little zip-up does just that.

Organic Bouquet

We know our members have a passion for the planet, but we also know that more than a few have a passion for someone special in their life too. So with New Year’s behind us we wanted to provide resources for that ever so intimate holiday, St. Valentine’s Day. If you want to take the traditional route with flowers, Organic Bouquet is one of our favorite options. Looking for something else? Well, we haven’t found anything better than Treehugger’s Valentine’s Guide.

Hang in there…

Ditto paper and plastic hangers

We are SO excited about this new product. There’s been a long debate over paper vs. plastic bags (bring your own is the winner of course) but the plastic vs. wire vs. wood hanger issue has been ‘hanging’ over us just as long. So we truly were so, So, SO excited to see GreenHeartGlobal’s new Ditto hangers come across our desk. Several design are available in both 100% recycled paper and 70% recycled content, 100% #1 PET recyclable plastic hangers. Best of all – and we LOVE this part – they have good design and have already won several design awards.

Tiny bubbles make me happy

Wonder Tablitz

Now here’s a new take on things. Wonder Tablitz, a new entry in household cleaners arena offers their product in the form of a reusable bottle with effervescent tablets. Just add water and the tablet…fizz, fizz…and go. There are certainly some great packaging reduction, lower transport weight, and other process benefits with Wonder Tablitz – and it’s definitely made waves in the packaging world – so our only wish would be to see some recycled content in the bottle itself.

Its a wrap

Crinkle wrap

Just in time for the holidays, Crinkle gift wrap offers recycled content gift wrap with soy based inks to spread the cheer while saving the earth. They also offer great little – and resusable – ‘pillow’ gift boxes and gift bags. Their wrap also comes in kits so you only get what you need rather than a lots of wasted paper along the way.
