Green Product of the Week: Art for Your Walls


Posted by Becky | View all posts by Becky

In a continuing attempt to find green products that are right under my nose, I’m concentrating on art this week. Here are a few of my favorite sustainable products for adorning your walls:

Columbia Forest Products Alexander Girard PLYprint® – Love Heart:

In collaboration with the estate of Alexander Girard, and Pfeiffer Lab, Columbia Forest Products reissues select artwork, by Alexander Girard, first used as part of the 1970’s Herman Miller® Environment Enrichment Panel program. For the first time since 1972, these graphics are now available as wall art.

Amenity Willow Large Wall Print – Cream & Cocoa:

Made of 100% pure organic cotton certified independently by third-party agency SKAL and printed with eco-friendly, non-toxic, water-based dyes. Made in the United States of imported fabric. I love the large scale of this piece.

Graham and Brown Taylor & Wood Frames Wallpaper

Approx 50% of this wallpaper is sourced from recycled material or from FSC-certified (Forestry Stewardship Council) managed forests. What’s so fun about it is that you can fill in your own artwork, and kids won’t get in trouble for scribbling on this wallpaper!

olli & lime Art Poster – Billie

Made on 100% recycled paper. I love the fun graphics and colors here.

k studio Heart on a Sleeve Wall Art

At Shelly and Mary Klein’s growing studio in Grand Rapids, Michigan, they manage each product from start to finish. They start with fabric made from some of the most sustainable materials available such as hemp, organic cotton, and recycled wool. This one in particular is hemp, so if you are looking for a gift for Woody Harrelson, I highly recommend this piece!
