It's just barely March and I've fulfilled two of my New Year's resolutions, yay me! This weekend I checked off "get some of my stuff in local stores" when I dropped off some cuddly and eco-friendly Saplings at Eco-Licious in Charlotte, NC.
Ready for the enviornmentally friendly part? The body, stuffing, and felt are all made from recycled plastic water bottles! Plastic water bottles can be melted down, made into thread, and used to make fabrics that would otherwise be made from new plastics. How cool is that?
If you're in the area and would like to grab one, Eco-Licious is located in the Plaza Midwood neighborhood at 1916 Commonwealth Ave. There's additional information on their Facebook page. If you do stop in, I highly recommend the Raz-dillos (vegan twinkie-style treats covered in raspberry and shredded coconut).
