Appliances | GAGGENAU Steam Oven

At this point we all have heard about the potential dangers of microwaving our food. We have been using the Gaggenau Steam Oven for the past 7 years to re-heat our food. The great thing about it is that not just it warms the food as it refreshes it with steam. There are many other functions, but honestly the food re-heating is the feature that we use the most and daily. Highly recommend.

Reducing Plastic | Reusable Bags

We have been as much as possible buying at the grocery shop’s bulk section. These washable vegetable and grain bags made by Organic Cotton Mart are made from 100% GOTS certified organic cotton with each bag having a tare weight on the label.

Fido glass jars from Bormioli Rocco sold at Amazon. Super durable, hand-washing recommended but we’ve washed them in the dishwasher for years. We disassemble the lid before placing them in the dishwasher.


Earth Element | MMclay Ceramics

I’ve been little by little collecting plates and bowls by MMclay from their beautiful collection of handmade potteries and ceramics made in San Francisco by MaryMar Keenan. I love them so much for the warmth they bring and for their imperfect handmade quality. The colors and textures are just beautiful. Very happy to support this local art and business. If you can check out their Airstream shop in Hayes Valley.


Healthy Sleep | COCO-MAT

We have been sleeping on COCO-MAT natural latex mattresses for the past 6 years, including the children. We love it. The firmness, the natural feel. No toxic flame retardants. No metal box springs that amplify EMF’s (Electromagnetic Fields) that can cause disturbed sleep. COCO-MAT mattresses are made of 100% natural materials certified by the Wool Mark, the Sustainable Furnishing Council, the Forest Stewardship Council and the Global Organic Textile Standard. The model we have is the Atlas. It is a great product and probably one of the best mattresses on the market.
