Off The Street Picture Frames

five ACCESSORIES is working with some StreetWise vendors to create these cool, eco-friendly, recycled pictures frames.  If the design looks familiar to you it’s because they are made out of ticket stubs and CTA cards!

The best part about these frames is that the program donates 15% from each frame sold to SteetWise and aims to help people stay off the street and help clean up the city litter.

Even better – the frame is a perfect inexpensive gift at $15.00.

Relax. Do Good.

I’ve had the pleasure of talking to the guys from Yellow Leaf Hammocks and they seem about as wonderful as their business plan.

They started the company when they took a trip to Thailand, fell in love with these hammocks and decided to find a way to bring them back to the States. All while supporting the Miabri people who make them.

They have the most vibrant, fun colors and a variety of hammock styles.  Makes me wish I lived somewhere with a yard to put one in.

  Check them out for yourself.
