Best for the Bathroom: Gaiam, Blue Canoe, Bean Products, Lithistone

Your bathroom could be the most earth-friendly room in your home.

| September/October 2005

1. Snuggle into these organic-cotton bathrobes without guilt; their fluffy cotton and low-impact dyes are decidedly more earth friendly than their non-organic counterparts. $89 to $92. (877) 989-6321; 

2. Love your locks with Kiss My Face organic hair-care products—a natural fit in a sustainable medicine cabinet. Its full line of shampoos, conditioners, and mousses contain no animal ingredients or artificial colors and were not animal tested. $8 each. (800) 262-5477.

3. Come clean with organic soaps, which contain no petrochemicals or synthetic ingredients. The legendary Dr. Bronner's Magic Soaps now offers organic soaps, made with certified-organic essential oils. $3.68 per bar. (760) 743-2211.

4. More than 2 billion disposable razors end up in landfills annually, the U.S. EPA estimates. Recycline’s “Preserve” razor is recyclable and its handle is made from 100 percent recycled plastic (such as yogurt containers). Four-pack of razors: $7.25. (888) 354-7296.

5. Thirsty organic cotton towels—in colors derived from the cotton plant or from low-impact dyes—are a must for the earth-friendly bathroom. Bonus: They’re easy on sensitive skin. $36 to $48 each from Native Organic Cotton. (800) 766-7454.

6. Sinks and vanities made using environmentally appropriate technologies provide stylish options for today’s bathrooms. Lithistone is a nontoxic and, magnesium-based cement that doesn’t require as much energy to produce as other kinds of cement. Vessel sinks from $550; vanities and countertops from $75 per square foot; integral sinks from $1,000. (970) 799-0181;
