Natural Home & Garden magazine is launching a line of environmentally
responsible consumer products at the 2012 International Home + Housewares Show.
The kitchenware collection’s cutting-edge design and user-friendly function-ality is the result of extensive research and subject to the highest standards
of responsible manufacturing, from the harvesting of raw materials to the
finished products and packaging.
Bill Mitchell, president, and Scott Viola, vice president of sales, are eager
to put a spotlight on the Natural Home lineup. “The collection and its offerings are long overdue. A true win-win for retailers and consumers alike.
To be able to offer the consumer sustainable products with exceptional
quality that are priced at or below the current market leaders is a huge
step forward. It just makes sense,” Mitchell said.
The space-saving Eazistore nesting cookware won the Wall Street Journal
Technology Innovation Award by combining high-quality materials with
modern construction that allows each set of pots or pans to nestle entirely
inside each other. This design reduces required storage space by up
to 67 percent. The line is oven- and dishwasher-safe as well as recy-
clable, providing a superior-quality product at an unbeatable price. In
addition, the manufacturing process is free of harmful byproducts and
utilizes more than 50 percent recycled content.
