This bath mat is made of hinoki, a wood that, like cedar, grows rich with aromatic oils. Bonus: it's antibacterial. Double bonus: the lumber comes from from the thinning of well-managed forests, constructed of short pieces that would otherwise be burned for fuel. $45.

This tissue box, also of hinoki, looks better than a pasteboard box and can infuse tissues with a crisp, woodsy scent. $35.

While other bags may be more of a fashion statement, this reusable bag says you're serious about preventing waste. Canoe suggests it's perfect for the Farmer's Market, but we're thinking tool tote. $40.
