Just because you're not ready for a compost pile doesn't mean you can't help celebrate Earth Day! TODAY style editor and Bobbie.com's Bobbie Thomas shares small, stylish ways you can make a difference.
Whether you're looking to reduce the amount of trash that ends up in landfills or you just can't stand when your pen runs out of ink, Seltzer Goods' "Seven Year Pen" is a smart and simple solution. Over 100 million pens are discarded every day, so this one's designed to last! It can write 1.7 meters a day for seven whole years. Added plus? It comes in 16 chic styles ($7.50, seltzergoods.com).
There's something refreshing about cracking open a can of your favorite beverage, but there's nothing fun about the quantity of cans that are tossed out each year. Enter "my eco-can," a cute, reusable can, complete with flip top, available in a cheerful assortment of colors ($13, uncommongoods.com).
Last but not least, I fell in love with Etsy seller 'GiddySpinster's striking stiletto planters, made from reclaimed high heels. The perfect hostess gift or a fun friend for your window sill, the fashionable accents come ready, planted with exotic flora from "spiky cacti" to "lavender echeveria." They're also grown organically and planted in 100 percent organic potting soil ($49-$75, etsy.com/shop/giddyspinster).
