Save Money While Saving The Environment

Taressa George

Nowadays, we have so many choices when it comes to shopping.  Not only do we have shopping malls, but local farmers markets, second-hand and consignment stores, as well as an unlimited number of online stores. 

E-commerce has become so popular that even groceries can now be delivered to your front door.  Mattresses, cars, medicine, and even fast-food, can all be delivered nearly anywhere.  Drones are even making deliveries in some places.  

For those of us who value social and environmental responsibility, we think about the impact our purchases have on the environment and society.  We think about the value of purchasing from places that support important causes, give back, and make a difference.  And the companies who take steps to reduce their environmental impact, make us feel better about purchasing from them.

WellaVerde is proud to be among the companies who think beyond the bottom line.  While we cannot compete with retail giants like Amazon or WalMart, we feel good about the products we offer and the way we get them to your door.  We sleep better at night knowing that we deliver something with minimal impact on the environment, and we are glad to provide unique, one-of-a-kind items that can't be found in any retail chain. 

We value our customers not because they make purchases.  We value our customers because they are making a difference.  When it comes to shopping, they have a choice.  In fact, they have a plethora of choices, yet they make a conscious decision to buy a sustainable, recycled, organic, fair-trade and eco-friendly product that supports a bigger mission.  A product with benefits far greater than their original, intended purpose.  

The next time you need a unique gift, consider its source, material, and secondary benefits.  Imagine what it would feel like if everything we purchased had additional benefits.  What a wonderful world this would be. 

Upcycling...

Denise George

...is the term used for taking an item that is used or considered ordinary and making something new and useful from it.  The term was coined in 1994 relating to the practice of not wasting potentially usefull materials.  In Haiti, an example of upcycling is steel drum art. It is a unique art form recognized worldwide utilizing 55 gallon metal oil drums which have been cleaned, sometimes flattened, hand tooled and soldered. Thus artisans can create decorative pieces of art of environmental value.
For example, this Rustic Iron Patio Firepit is made from these 55 gallon drums with a hand tooled eternity circle design on the side. A recycled, repurposed, handmade product which also gives back a portion of the proceeds to Sister Clara's Clinic in Haiti.

Rustic Clay Tile Wall Sconce

Denise George

Kalalou came to life in 1984 when owners Doug and Susan Williams traveled to Ocho Rios, Jamaica and encountered the beautiful handmade baskets being sold in the markets. They promptly turned a vacation into a vocation and then into a viable industry and dependable support for their many artisans and their communities through the Doug and Susan's Kids Foundation. The sales of Kalalou products pay for doctors and medical supplies at Sister Clara's Clinic in Haiti, build schools and provide school uniforms in Honduras, and build homes and provide food for children in Colombia.

A simple terracotta roof tile has been cleverly repurposed and turned into a rustic wall sconce. 19" high, the sconce hangs from a recycled wire hook and holds a pillar candle. Pretty in pairs. Best for use outdoors. Chocolate brown or turquoise wash.

Sprig Eco-Friendly Dump Truck

Denise George

The Sprig story. Once upon a time there were three talented toy designers whose award-winning toys were selling like hotcakes.They were happy and successful. Then one day the designers visited the factories that turned their computer renderings into real toys.They eagerly watched the assembly line with anticipation, and quickly realized the harmful impact their toy production had on the nearby air, soil, water, plants and people. They were devastated. They went back to the drawing board, only to face another disturbing toy trend that threatened to control their designs. Passive “watch-me” electronic toys were gaining popularity, encouraging otherwise healthy kids to become more inactive. Refusing to be part of the problem, they joined forces to become the solution. Inspired by their desire to keep kids active and the planet healthy, Sprig is dedicated to infusing creativity, smart design, quality manufacturing, earth-friendly materials, product satisfaction and responsible business practices into a superior line of fun, kid-powered toys.
