some good things: candles and wormeries

I've just started browsing a UK blog called
Hippy Shopper and they have some really nice and unusual products... I think the name Hippy is a bit of a misnomer, actually most of their stuff is pretty modern, sleek with emphasis on design, with the environmentally friendliness of it just in the background.

I especially like these alternatives to candles, which give the same kind of light but with no risk of burning your house down. Sadly not yet available in the UK, grrrr, so I shall have to seek out a friendly US seller who ships internationally... maybe there's someone on Ebay already, I hope. You can get them from vessel

On the other extreme, maybe we should get a wormery to help in making compost. Two that sell in the UK are listed here.

Hi All!

Love those candles too! We have them here in Chicago at Lightology.

If you can't find an international shipper, and you're desperate, let us know. Maybe we can help you out.

You can definitely buy them on eBay. Just had a friend win an auction on Thursday for some white candelas. I'm going to be buying the candeloos for my kids...
