Branch Home: an eco-friendly gift registry + a giveaway!

April 21, 2011

Continuing on with Earth Day-ish posts (since today is officially Earth Day!), we have an excellent giveaway from Branch Home. Branch is a sustainably-minded online shop based in San Francisco, founded in 2005 by a graphic designer looking to promote beautiful, functional housewares that are also thoughtfully made.

They carry a gorgeous mix of contemporary housewares, furniture, and gift items, and provide a beautiful, eco-friendly registry option (wedding, baby, or any other event) for those of you who are searching for gifts that keep your home and the earth happy. And their commitment to sustainability isn’t just a gimick. They research a product’s materials, manufacturing process, and labor employed, ensuring that each product they sell meets their high standards.

And for those of you who are hoping to make your wedding a bit more earth-friendly, Branch is the official US importer for WASARA, a 100% tree-free “paper” plate. WASARA dishes are beautiful and would certainly hold their own at a stylish wedding or event. They’ve won all sorts of design awards, they’re fully biodegradable and compostable, and the line includes 15 different pieces including bowls, trays, cups, plates, and more.

AND they can be heat stamped (aka branded) with your name or monogram or wedding date for a really fun addition to your decor! If you’re still curious about more, Fast Company’s Co.Design did a great piece expounding the virtues of this frickin’ awesome product line!

You can purchase bulk or retail WASARA packs here and/or a sample WASARA kit for $20 that comes with a gift certif for $20 of additional WASARA products.

Now, the giveaway! Leave a comment including the link to your fave product on their site and we’ll choose a winner for the $100 gift card good for anything on the Branch site, at the end of next week.

Good luck!
