gaiam eco bath

Love this. Elegant, water-resistant (I keep mine out of direct spray, on back end of my clawfoot bath shower ring, so it stay relatively dry) and, at the risk of hyperbole, I can credit this thing with transforming my shower experience. It ably holds shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste, toothbrush (even has a handy slot for one), soap (with plenty of gaps for drying).

Questions: Not sure how sustainable bamboo truly is, since it’s energy intensive to use in manufacturing, and product comes from China, which is not only far away (shipping, trucking) but doesn’t have a great reputation for caring about sustainable forest management.

Still, overall, I gotta give this thing an A. It’s elegant, simple, eco-er than 90% of what’s out there in any case, and eminently practical.

Buy it on Gaiam’s site, and/or read reviews by customers.
