Allsop Sojii Solar Tea Lanterns

Sojii Solar Tea Lanterns in Metallic Honeypot and Saffron

“Catching the sun’s rays by day, our sweet NEW Solar Tea Lantern lights up by night to cast a warm romantic glow from within. Clean and quaint each hand-blown glass lantern is embedded with a combination of luminescence and white glass. Unlike other solar lights, this lantern utilizes a “warm white” LED, for a natural, inviting glow. For instant ambiance, add a little romance to every evening enjoyed outdoors!

The solar tea lantern has many uses: Nestle in the garden, sit flat on a tabletop, deck, patio or stairway, suspend with a hook or carry by hand to light the way by night.”

As the founders of the concept “solar garden art,” Allsop Home & Garden is known for unique combinations of green solar technology, efficient LED lighting, artisan hand-blown glass and use of other creative materials with solar power.

Greenaid Seedbombs are here!

An assortment of seed bombs specific to the Pacific Northwest and a slingshot for launching them!

Made from a mixture of clay, compost, and seeds, seed bombs are a great way to combat the many forgotten grey spaces you encounter everyday: from sidewalk cracks, to vacant lots and parking medians. They can be thrown anonymously into these abandoned urban sites to reclaim and transform them into places worth looking at and caring for. They can also be tossed into your home garden.

Greenaid seedbombs are hand-rolled in Culver City, CA using local materials, sustainable packaging, and socially responsible labor.  Working in partnership with Chrysalis, a local non-profit, Commonstudio offers employment opportunities and a living wage to formerly homeless or economically disadvantaged men and women from the Los Angeles area.  Every seedbomb you purchase is an investment in our shared future on a greener, more equitable planet.
