new buzz word: ECO-friendly

Of the 30 invitations across my desk this weekend, the new term of choice is ECO-friendly.
This particular company sells gorgeous artisan enhanced wood accessories and furniture all which are true conversation and conservation pieces.

Examples shown are elegantly handmade by craftsmen who are best described as artists. Some pieces are made from wood that is over 300 years old. The wood is often found in old barns, decaying bridges, reforestation areas, and rare tree trunks found at the bottom of rivers.

These hidden treasures are still well preserved in the remote areas of Brazil, waiting to be discovered and given a creative touch to transform them into works of art. All of these featured wood pieces are certified by accredited environmental organizations strict standards.
