SANTA BARBARA, Calif., March 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- With Earth Day approaching, now is the perfect time to celebrate the companies who go above and beyond to care for the environment, making it possible for everyone to live a little greener. Christie Communications ( www.christiecomm.com) is proud to represent the following clients that were founded on the principles of not only offering effective products, but helping to do their part to make the planet a better place! EcoTensil ( www.ecotensil.com ) is the most sustainable option for product demonstrations and food sampling by helping to put an end to "one taste plastic waste." EcoTensil's paperboard spoons are made in America from sustainable materials. The spoons take up less space than plastic or wood utensils—5,000 fit in the same box as 1,000 comparable utensils—making them the greenest utensils to ship, store, and use. ECO-heater( www.eco-heater.com ) was born of the idea that living green need not be less comfortable. ECO-heater T400 with built-in digital thermostat is a convection space heater that uses only 400 watts of electricity—70% less energy than most space heaters. ECO-heater is the perfect solution to providing effective, supplemental heat by using less energy. Takeya ( www.takeyausa.com ) Glass Beverage Bottles allow consumers to enjoy healthy, refreshing beverages, without the waste of take-out and packaged drinks. Takeya's Glass Beverage Bottles are made from high-quality recycled glass that are durable and can be used indefinitely. They are portable, chemical-free, and the most sustainable option because glass can be recycled over and over, never losing its purity or quality. Lafes Personal Care Products (www.lafes.com ) was started to offer consumers natural yet effective alternatives to personal care products. Lafes is known for their natural deodorants, baby, and hair care products that are organic, free of synthetic preservatives, fragrances, artificial colors, parabens, propylene glycol, DEA, and SLS. People can care for themselves while protecting the planet by refusing to use damaging chemical pollutants found in typical personal care products by switching to Lafes.
