Give Thanks To Mother Nature

We all know Thanksgiving is a time to give thanks to family, friends and loved ones. But what about giving thanks to the land we walk on, the air we breathe, the sun we soak up, the trees that provide us the opportunity to live? The mountains, oceans and forests we enjoy every day?

Give thanks by giving back to Mother Nature this Thanksgiving. Substitute conventional dinnerware for bamboo, harmful cleaners for biodegradable cleaners, toxic candles for lead-free and paraffin-free beeswax and soy candles.

eco ellie’s provides YOU with the key to be able to Be Green. Save Green. so this Thanksgiving do something that’s good for you and the environment you live in!


Paper vs. Bamboo
Paper plates are healthy for you because they come from trees right? WRONG! Paper plates are made from petroleum and natural gases, which leaves harsh chemicals and bleaches right on the plate you serve your food on. Bet you didn’t know what you were eating off of!

Switch to something more natural, literally. Bambu and Bamboo Studio dinnerware is disposable/reusable, elegant, strong and 100% biodegradable. The best part… it’s handcrafted straight from the Bamboo sheath. None of that middle processing of turning the product into a pulp and bleaching is involved. Just pure, natural Bamboo, something you can actually feel good about eating off of. Think of it as being stranded on a tropical island without the stranded part {well and the tropical island part…but you get the idea}.

Harmful Cleaners vs. Biodegradable Cleaners
We have the trick for those of you who are concerned with the environmental effects of conventional cleaning products. Mrs. Meyers Clean Day Aromatherapeutic Cleaners are biodegradable and don’t contain all the nasty, harmful chemicals of the common conventional cleaner. We knew you didn’t want to be eating off a counter that was covered with ammonia and chlorine.

Toxic Candles vs. Non-Toxic Candles
Eco-Friendly and biodegradable, GoodLight Natural Candles and Bluecorn Natural Candles are Non-Toxic, non-carcinogenic compound candles that burn cleaner, longer and hold more fragrance than your ordinary paraffin wax candle. Paraffin wax is the “bottom of the barrel” …the final byproduct in the petroleum refining chain.

Research suggests breathing paraffin fumes from a burning paraffin candle in an enclosed environment, has the same damaging effect as inhaling second-hand tobacco smoke, or even the exhaust fumes of a small diesel engine! By not releasing the toxins that paraffin candles emit, YOUR health is safe! Now that is something worth spending your money on.

Conventional Baking Materials vs. Recyclable Baking Materials
Using eco-friendly baking materials makes Mother Nature smile with happiness. If You Care 100% unbleached paper products help reduce the amount of toxins in our lakes and streams while 100% recycled aluminum foil can be used over and over again. Would you want to be swimming in a toxic lake? We didn’t think so… do something good for the environment next time you whip up something delicious.
