So I FINALLY found a Eco-friendly company in Charlotte... or I should say that they found me!!! Natural Luxe doesn't own a shop, but they sell their products in a marketplace in The Boulevard at NoDa. But lucky for you, Natural Luxe has an amazing website with tons of Eco-friendly products.
Natural Luxe only sells "good gifts." This is their definition: "Good is natural, organic, recycled, charitable, handmade, fairly traded or better yet a combination of all of these. Natural Luxe was started with the concept that gifts could give more than once. When you purchase a gift that is recycled you are giving to the environment and to the lucky recipient of your gift. Choose one of our gifts that supports a charity and you touch the life of a person thousands of miles away and surprise your best friend with a great gift at the same time. You get the idea, right?" Natural Luxe carries jewelry, clothing, handbags, bath & body products, baby items, pet products and goods for your home.
I got to try the Lavender and Geranium soap from The Bubble Roome and it is so soothing! It is an all natural soap made with shea & cocoa butters, vegetable oils, essential oils and natural tinting herbs that leaves your hands feeling soft and moisturized. Every time I walk past my bathroom I can smell the aromas.
Natural Luxe also has awesome gift sets for everyone. I especially love the baby gifts. But, you know I have a bag obsession, so what better product to spotlight than a recycled cotton tote! Natural Luxe has 7 mama bags that are sure to fit your personality. I am aOK, so maybe I don't play bunco or even know how to play for that matter. But I love some sweet tea and the fact that this bag is made from 80% recycled cotton and 20% recycled bottles. The bag is made and printed in the US and is FLA approved. The tote is great for produce shopping, grocery shopping, any time shopping, trips to the beach or to just walk around and proudly say what kind of mama you are! I love packing totes with books and toys for long car rides. The only problem I have is that I pack too much and the tote tends to come unhemmed. This tote will carry up to 16 canned goods! It is built to carry heavy items, so no tearing in my future.
