St. Patrick’s Day: All Things Green

happy saint patricks day

For over 1,000 years, the Irish have observed St. Patrick’s Day as a religious holiday. It is also observed in the United States and abroad with parades, Irish inspired feasts, and of course, green. Since the 17th century, the color green has become an important part of the celebrations and are seen on many clothes, shamrocks and yes, leprechauns.  To get into the festive spirit, we decided to share some of our favorite green items that we offer.

Favorite Green Water Pitcher

The Brita Grand Green Water Pitcher: We love this filtered water pitcher from Brita. A flip-top lid, soft grip handle and electronic filter change indicator light are convenient features that make this a great fit for your home. Our favorite part about this pitcher is that it’s green in more ways than one. First, this Brita pitcher eliminates the need to buy bottled water, which often clogs our nation’s landfills. Secondly, when it’s time for the filter to be replaced, you can recycle it through the Brita recycling program. How’s that for green?

Favorite Green Water Bottle

The Klean Kanteen Be Green Bottle and Loop Cap: Like the Brita water pitcher, this water bottle is also green in more ways than one. Made from BPA free, food-grade stainless steel, this is one of the more eco-friendly water bottles available on the market today. The Klean Kanteen Loop Cap allows you to clip the water bottle to backpacks, camping equipment and more with the Klean Kanteen S-Biner Carabiner. It’s dishwasher friendly and will not retain any flavors or odors, making it a perfect addition to your collection of reusable water bottles.

Favorite Green Humidifier

The Crane Cool Mist Green Frog Humidifier: Its adorability alone makes this a personal favorite of ours. Admit it, the face mesmerizes you. It’s great for use in children’s rooms and provides relief from sinus irritation, nasal congestion and dry skin. The winter months may be nearing an end, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get ahead of the game and get your humidifier for next winter. Even after the numerous health benefits, there’s still that adorable face…
