1. Furniture: Made from mango, acacia and rosewood grown on plantations, the wood furniture is not only gorgeous but also certified sustainable. Zinger also carries Boulevard upholstery which is made in the USA.
2. Rain chains: These copper chains of decorative funnels replace regular downspouts to dress up a porch or patio. The water trickles down the rain chain into a fish pond, fountain, or clay pot at the bottom. In time, the copper takes on a lovely patina too.
3. Bokashi composting: Think of this as accelerated kitchen composting. Layer Bokashi with kitchen scraps, including proteins, in a special bucket and create highly concentrated tea for your garden. It's perfect for small scale apartment composting because there is no smell and quick results.
4. Mythic Paint: This paint is so safe you can eat it. Mythic boasts zero toxins, VOCs, or carcinogens.
We have bought everything from vintage reproduction cookie jars to rubber chickens wearing Santa suits (it was a gag gift) at Zinger. What is the best non-hardware item you have found at Zinger or any other hardware store?
