Design Deals

This Saturday, the Washington DC Green Festival kicks off at Mount Vernon Square, bringing together hundreds of green businesses and showcasing community environmental initiatives, food, films, and music. To help you get into the spirit, we picked a few eco-friendly pieces for this week’s Design Deals round-up. With these prices, being kind to the planet is kind on your bank account, too.

Gaiam is closing out stock of its popular organic cotton sateen sheets. Made in India, the 250-thread count sheets use low-impact dyes and aren’t made with chemical softeners or chlorine. They’re going fast—not all colors are still available—and for good reason: once $50-$119, the bedding now ranges from $18.99-$61.99.

Because it grows quickly without the help of manmade fertilizers, bamboo is a popular eco-friendly material for homes. It’s also tough, resists moisture, and is easy to clean—making it a great choice for flooring. We like this bamboo rug, trimmed in honey-brown cotton, from Natural Area Rugs. Once $259, it’s going for $130.

This country-chic votive holder from the Pottery Barn is made of reclaimed teak from Indonesian fishing boats and would be a great way to warm up a living room with soft light. It’s on sale for $79.99.
