Bluedot’s Good Libations columnist and social media manager, Julia Cooper, didn’t understand what the deal was with fancy salt. Then, she discovered Saltverk. Handcrafted in Iceland, the deliciously sustainable salt is made from local seawater that’s heated using the island’s legendary geothermal energy.

Misfits Market

Misfits is an “online value grocer dedicated to making affordable, high-quality food more accessible while helping break the cycle of food waste.” It recently acquired Imperfect Foods, another online grocer in the business of selling “ugly” produce. Both have fans here at Bluedot.

King Arthur Baking Company

King Arthur Baking Company traces its roots to the 1790s, all the way back to the country’s first flour company. Now an employee-owned, Certified B Corp, King Arthur looks decidedly to the future. They’ve created an impressive list of sustainability goals to attain by 2030.

Nimble Tech Accessories

Tech products — chargers, wires, phone cases, adapters, and the like — often have short lives, either because they’re made poorly, become obsolescent, or both. Nimble aims to make those items sustainably and to help prevent existing tech detritus from becoming landfill waste.

Pela Case Phone Cases

We all need to protect our phones, but doing so comes at great cost: people toss well over a billion plastic phone cases every year. Canadian company Pela offers an excellent alternative — fashionable, eco-friendly cell phone cases available for most phone types, in many styles and colors.

Sparitual Nail Polish

Whether or not nail polish has a deleterious effect on human health is “not well established,” according to the Harvard Health Blog. But, this is one of those circumstances where we feel we should err on the side of caution, and recommend Sparitual’s Nourishing Vegan Nail Color.

Dirty Labs Laundry and Home

Dirty Labs makes effective, eco-friendly laundry detergent that cleans using stain-fighting enzymes and other bio-based ingredients. A 21.6-ounce stainless steel bottle tackles 80 standard loads. It’s also non-toxic and biodegradable. The space-saving results alone will win a city-dweller’s heart.  

OXO Housewares

With a mission to “Make everyday better, every day,” OXO (pronounced ahk-so) offers simple sustainable housewares that have been designed and tested with painstaking care. The company’s first revolutionary product, a vegetable peeler, included a rubber grip that made peeling safer and easier.
