Eko Miko Candle Line

There are few things we love more than finding innovative new eco products that are ideal for entertaining. We've been in touch recently with the folks over at Eko Miko and are really loving their new collection of products. Founded by actress Izabella Miko (Coyote Ugly, Clash of the Titans, The Cape), this chic new line of eco candles is green party-ready. Every aspect of these candles is eco-friendly – from the packaging to the 100% vegetable wax based candles. But our favorite part: the green frosted glass candle holders, which are made from repurposed wine, water and trademark bottles that have been rescued from the North American waste stream.

Candy Heart Centerpiece

We LOVE (pun intended) this adorable and easy to assemble DIY Valentine's Day centerpiece. To create this look, start by sorting through your craft closet for two transparent glass vases (one that can fit inside the other). Place the smaller vase into the center of the larger vase. Fill the space between the two vases with colorful conversation heart candies. To finish your sweet centerpiece, use the center vase as a receptacle for cheerful flowers.

Surprise your sweetie this Valentine's Day by baking up some super sweet (eco) treats. Spend some time scouring through a vegan-friendly cookbook for cupid-worthy treats (we adore the recipes in Babycakes, Clarkson Potter, 2009).

Beer Soap

Trying to find creative (and eco) V-day gifts for the men in my life is often a difficult task. However, these beer soaps, which are made using Guinness Extra Stout, are phthalate-free, vegan-friendly and decidedly more sweet (and definitely more unexpected) than the go-to box of dark chocolate.
