It’s Earth Day! And what better way to give back to our beautiful planet than by doing our part. Let’s start recycling those Starbucks cups, and turning off the lights, and if you are too lazy to go plant a tree, how about contributing to an eco-friendly project? We created a short list of crowdfunded projects currently on Kickstarter and Indiegogo that you can help:

Salts Organic Clothing: This project looks to fund the production of the 2014 Salts Summer Organic Clothing Collection. The entire line is made with a soft and lasting viscose from bamboo, organic cotton blend fabric. 

People LightA fun, original and environmentally friendly LED lamp that is handmade in the USA and will pay for itself over its lifespan.
