Funny, elephant’s stated editorial mission is quite scuppieish:

It’s about living a good life that also happens to be good for others, and our planet.

    This sounds nice, but the problem is the entire production model itself. How much energy was required to both recycle/produce any of these items and then package and ship them from far-away places? Will they be recycled again? This lifestyle still values materialism; the system still operates on increasing rates of consumption, which implies increasing rates of energy consumption and waste production. These changes are too shallow and ignore the deeper issues. Call me Debbie Downer, but I'm not impressed.
