Today, I present a few finds that come from trees – or at least look like they do… the Friday Finds Wood Edition.

FF: Birch Paper Straws from Paper Source

FFPSI use straws every day. Of course the straws are usually plastic and end up in the trash. I have dabbled in paper straws in attempts to reduce my garbage footprint, but have found them to be lacking. However, I have to say, I love the Birch Paper Straws I found from Paper Source – they are not only “green” they look like the branches of my favorite tree.

About the Birch Paper Straws from Paper Source: “Paper straws are the latest craft accessory, and we love this unique birch style. The gray and white faux bois look is festive and elegant for holiday parties and winter weddings. Made from bio-degradable paper.”

FF: The Wooden Timepieces of WeWood

FFWWStaying on the “green” theme, I love the wooden watches of WeWood, which very well may be mostly biodegradable. In any case, the folks at WeWood plant a new tree for every timepiece sold.

About the wooden timepieces of WeWood: “Feel the difference nature can bring. Completely absent of artificial or toxic material, WeWood fashion watches are as natural and kind as the wrist that carries it. Your WeWood watch breathes the same air we breathe, respects our skin as we respect nature by supporting sophisticated sustainability. As alive as nature, your timepiece records your sensations and shares your experiences and may awaken memories from another time and place. The perfect natural mate, the eco cool watches of WeWood tell a story that becomes yours to wear, smell and feel.”

FF: The Wooden Bike Sign from SlippinSouthern

FFWBWhile we are on the wood theme, I have been wanting to post about this great find for a while: this wooden bicycle sign from SlippinSouthern.

SlippinSouthern makes “wooden wall art, letters, hooks, and signs with a Southern twist y’all.”
