Friday Find of the Week: Do Good While Smelling Good

Sometimes, it’s hard not to feel guilty about shopping knowing that our constant consumption drains precious rescources. But there are products you can be proud of purchasing… and smell delicious while doing so. Check out these scented home and body products that are eco-friendly or philanthropic. By Taylor Soppe.

Seawicks Candle Company donates 50 cents of every candle purchase to coastal conservation, supporting Maine’s Boothbay Region Land Trust. If that doesn’t make you feel all warm and fuzzy, burning one is sure to. Each candle conjures its own mirthful memory, from apple picking with the family to pancakes on Sunday morning. We like the Evenings by the Fire candle. It may just be one flame but emanates the scent of a seaside bonfire.

Sometimes a lovely smelling home starts with, well, no smell. Try these eco-friendly satchels made from bamboo charcoal. Moso bags extract any unpleasant scents from the vicinity and purify the air. These work especially well to banish pet odors and come in two sizes for different sized-spaces.

You can be both benevolent and redolent with this fair trade body lotion. Lush’s Charity Pot promises to soften your skin and gratify your nose. The best part? Every penny you pay (excluding tax) goes to the grassroots charity printed on the lid. The company has already donated $1.3 million to support animal rights, environmental protection and humanitarian concerns. Save the Rain and Ocean Voyages are two current beneficiaries.

If you’re looking for something novel, this usb diffuser will fit the bill. Sprinkle in a few drops of the rose-scented oil and plug the gadget into your computer to fragrance the air. The price? You decide.  Yes, that’s right, you enter in the amount you plan to pay. Don’t get too stingy, though. You wouldn’t want to shortchange the JAAGO Foundation, the featured charity receiving 100 percent of the profits.

    No doubt, a lovely home is a home that smells good! However, there are certain scents (like that of fish and others) that are too tough to remove. And this is how I became a huge fan of essential oils.

    The USB aroma diffuser looks interesting. Is it a flash drive or just a perfume?

    “We are purely on a mission to fix audio for each record company for every artist worldwide. We have to convert this thing around and we’re starting to, ” he said. “I’m happy that everyone else is now jumping throughout on culture and sound. If anything should be said relating to this, it’s that. The impact that we have had on moving audio tracks forward is that we’re taking it out of a downward spiral. When was the final time you heard a youngster say, ‘I wanna get some Bose for Christmas? ‘”
