Green is the new black this season (and every season) as the world becomes more and more aware of our environmental impact. It seems that everywhere you go, people are joining the conversation about sustainability and conscious luxury.
With the release of new documentaries, news stories and a variety of new eco brands popping up on social, it’s hard to avoid the movement going on socially and culturally. These days, it’s practically taboo to ask for a straw at a restaurant, and single-use takeout containers are a faux pas.
Be sustainable in style with these amazing eco-friendly items, like couture reusable water bottle holders, we’re craving in May
REUSABLE WATER BOTTLE HOLDERS
With the days of single-use plastic bottles gone, many have adapted to carrying around their beloved Hydro Flask, S’well, Yeti or glass water bottle everywhere they go. There’s only one issue: most of these large and bulky bottles don’t fit neatly into a handbag, or if they do, there’s nothing to prevent them from tipping over and spilling. (This happened to our publisher last year, who was seen air-drying money and her favorite journal.)
Enter the designer reusable water bottle holders—a bag specifically made to hold your water bottles. All of the most luxurious fashion houses are joining in on this trend–Marine Serre, Fendi, Burberry and Jacquemus to name a few.
MILA AIR PURIFIER
We can control what we eat and drink, what products we use and things we wear, but we don’t have any control over what we breathe. The EPA estimates that the air inside our homes is three to five times more unhealthy than the air outside. Make a change for a healthier home and a healthier planet with Mila, a smart device that removes air pollutants, airborne viruses, dust and smoke, all from the touch of an app. Breathe easy!

GREEN & CLEAN | CISCO HOME FURNITURE
Did you know your furniture can be organic? Cisco Home furniture is changing the way people think about what they’re sitting on. The brand offers sofas, chairs, sectionals, mirrors and lighting—all with a sustainable innovation (much like your reusable water bottle holders). Their system is called “Inside Green,” and all their pieces are crafted from FSC-certified woods, organic latex, jute, hemp, organic cotton and wool. Sustainability at home goes far beyond the logistic systems in place…furniture can be eco-friendly too!
KEVIN’S CLEAN PAN
We all know how to eat clean, but have you ever thought about what you’re cooking your food in? It turns out that many of our favorite non-stick or coated pans contain the toxic chemicals we are trying to avoid in our diets. That’s exactly why chef Kevin McCray created Kevin’s Clean Pan, allowing consumers to cook the healthy foods they love in a chemical-free environment. Kevin’s pan is free of Teflon, PFAS, PFOA, Lead and Cadmium, which most pans use for non-stick performance. Kevin’s Clean Pan is high quality, extra thick, and made to last—meaning less waste, too.
BERKEY WATER FILTRATION SYSTEM
Have you ever wondered if the water you’re drinking is actually clean? It’s no secret that our tap water is not the best way to stay hydrated… Drink water that is guaranteed to be pure! Berkey filtration systems are water purifiers that remove contaminants, bacteria and viruses without the use of chemicals. They rely on gravity and microfiltration to remove all the bad stuff while keeping helpful minerals and raising the pH level of your water. Choose which size works best for your family. There’s nothing to plug in or hook up, let gravity do the work! And once you purify your water, put it in a reusable water bottle with a stylish holder.
