All of this talk about going green has really inspired me to revamp my every day routine and really consider the impact I'm making on the environment. I try to recycle products and take shorter showers, turn off all of my lights when I don't need them and try to ween myself from buying bottled water, but I think one area of improvement I can use is in my apartment. I'll be moving into a new place soon, so I thought what better time than now to make my new place eco-friendly? Plus, I'm always up for some shopping and redecorating!
My schedule has been pretty packed lately so I've relied on online shopping for most of my purchases. It's quick, easy, and sure beats walking to the car with 50 pounds of bags! One site that I've been visiting quite frequently is CSNstores.com. It's pretty much a one stop shop for everything...they have over 200 different websites where I can shop for anything- from furniture to lighting and even cookware. What's so great is that you can click the "Go Green" icon to categorize how you shop and narrow your search down to Energy Star appliances, eco-friendly products, or LED lighting. I found this really awesome Calla Lily Landscape lamp that I think would be a great addition to my little outdoors space and not only is it super cute, but it's solar powered!

Another great room where I could make my apartment eco-friendly is in the kitchen. I came across cookware.com through the CSN home page and found a lot of great items I'd love to add to my kitchen, especially bamboo products. I found this great eco-friendly Bamboo cutting board that will be the perfect way to start "greening-over" my kitchen.

I really liked the idea of using bamboo products so I continued my search on Cookware.com and found another great piece that would go really great with my new cutting board, a bamboo bowl. See what you think!

Ah, I just love shopping. And all of these eco-friendly items will look so great in my new apartment! Who said you can't go green and still be stylish??
