Sustainable New Year

Is one of your New Year’s resolutions to be more environmentally friendly? We love sustainable products and are proud to introduce you to some of our favorites.

Our favorite candles!

Rewind Candles:

Rewind Candles have been our go-to candle forever. These beauties are made from start to finish in the USA (Charleston, SC) and have an 80 hour burn time. The company repurposes old wine bottles, cutting them by hand, for the container. The wax is a premium natural soy wax and the fragrances all mimic your favorite wines. Stop in and smell one of these for yourself today.

These wraps are the bee’s knees!

What is Bee’s Wrap? We get this question a lot and we’re always happy to talk about one of our favorite environmentally friendly products. Bee’s Wrap is a food wrap that can be used again and again and again. It’s made of GOTS-certified organic cotton, sustainable sourced beeswax, organic jojoba oil, and tree resin. The beeswax and jojoba oil have antibacterial qualities that help to keep your food fresh and allow you to reuse the product. Neat, huh? You can use it to cover a bowl or casserole by using the heat of your hand to create an air-tight seal. Use it to wrap up your fancy cheeses; wrap up your sandwich for lunch (forget those plastic baggies!) or wrap up fresh baked foods. Many people wonder how easy it is to clean and it’s really a sinch! Wash in cool water with a mild soap (avoid hot water) before air drying and then storing. These products are handmade in Vermont.

Our favorite Bee’s Wrap:

Trying it out for the first time? Snag yourself the medium size (10” x 11) to try wrapping your favorite cheese up or cover a bowl.

Best for lunches? These cute as a button sandwich wraps (13″L x 13″W) are perfect for lunches on the go. Unfold and use the wrap as a placemat!

Aplat Totes

We cannot talk about these beauties enough. The Aplat brand is a farm to factory operation focused on zero waste. They support using local resources, labor and manufacturing. The fabric is all made from environmentally friendly and sustainable fibers, surplus denim from local cut-sew factories featuring no hardware, plastic, elastic or wasteful packaging. They are also made in the USA. Relish Decor loves these culinary totes for those reasons alone but they are also incredibly useful. The totes are designed to carry large party platters, pans and casseroles while keeping them horizontal and upright while in transit. We also love it to carry all our farmer’s market goodies in warmer months. You can wash your totes when needed in cold water and air dry.

Skoy Cloths

These bright beauties take the place of your paper towels, sponges, rags, dishcloths, and more. They are also super environmentally friendly– we’re talking 100% biodegradable when properly composted. Can you believe this cloth has an absorption factor of 15x its own weight? Not to mention you can keep them germ free (they can go in the washer/dryer)!

RubBits Multi Purpose Scrubbers

These scrubbers are made from 100% natural loofah material (meaning: biodegradable, non-toxic, compostable, and safe for every surface). These colorful little guys are perfect for cleaning the practically any surface.

Skoy Cloths and RubBits are two of our favorite things to add into the perfect housewarming gift.
