New Belgium Brewery

22 oz.Image via Wikipedia
The Colorado based New Belgium Brewery produces some delicious brews...their Fat Tire Amber Ale is one of my personal favorites. Even better, they just might be one of the most environmentally friendly breweries around. They've made major steps towards making their brewing process sustainable, like using wind energy and increasing the efficiency of the brewing process. On top of that, New Belgium Brewery donates a fraction of their proceeds to environmentally friendly charities and they are part of the 1% for the planet network. So, next time you are stocking up for a party, grab a six pack of Fat Tire Amber Ale!

Binarywinter describes their Code Green Tee as: "...a reminder that as artists and engineers, crafters and architects of the future, it's up to us to develop our products responsibly." The cute and creative design is screen printed onto a brown American Apparel t-shirt, so sizing should be easy!

Saving trees, one toilet paper square at a time

Apparently there is an environmentally friendly way to hang your toilet paper, which results in less paper usage...saving the trees and saving you money. I have to say it maybe a little over the top, but every little bit helps, right? via Tree Hugger
