Echo Park Pottery + Eco Center mugs When we approached local art icon Peter Shire about carrying his famous Echo Park Pottery mugs in our Tools for Change exhibition, he invited us to make them ourselves! Over 2 days we cut, rolled, shaped, glazed and fired these limited edition EXP + The Ecology Center mugs. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
In India, tiffin refers to a packed lunch carried to work or school. These stainless steel tiffin carriers are lightweight, easy to clean, easy to carry, and have a lid that doubles as a plate. Best of all, theyâ€™re infinitely reusable, helping mitigate tons of plastic and paper waste from the landfill.
Weâ€™ve been using Tub Trugs for everything around The Ecology Center, from hauling laundry to organizing our pantry. But our favorite, is how much water it conserves in the kitchen: keeping a tub in the kitchen sink to capture excess water from washing dishes, fruits, and vegetables, and carry the tub to the garden.

Garden trowel If you have only one garden tool, it should be a trowel. This one, by Brook & Hunter, is made from the highest quality, hand crafted red oak and stainless steel alloy with a multi-layer polished blade. Its uses are almost inexhaustible--it breaks, stirs, and moves soil, digs out weeds, and excavates and transfers delicate saplings. 9
