Rootcups help to start roots in water for plant clippings, seeds such as avocado, and bulbs. Cutting roots are protected from light, which aids growth. Leaves are held above the water to prevent rotting and the lid captures evaporation so cuttings need little attention. The raw material is common beach sand, which after processing results in a durable, non-toxic flexible elastomer. Rootcups are available in two sizes and in three colors: gray, green, and clay. (Small: $4.99; Large: $13.99)

BioLighter is an eco-friendly, odor-free method for igniting charcoal for grilling. Renewable, sustainable, and petroleum free, BioLighter works 300% faster than traditional charcoal lighter fluids, which are toxic, smelly, and a health hazard to the environment. A food based, non-carcinogenic oil that imparts no petroleum tastes onto food, as do the more toxic alternatives on the market, BioLighter is also locally produced by an environmentally-conscious company.
Entrepreneurs Brian Deninger and Jolie Ginsburg acquired the San Francisco-based tour bus company Incredible Adventures in 1999. All of the buses the company operates run on biofuels and have offset 65,000 barrels of oil since their conversion from traditional fuel. In 2010 Dogpatch Biofuels, a provider of biodiesel, was acquired. Biodiesel is a fuel alternative produced from recycled waste vegetable oil, canola, soybean oil, algae, and animal fat. BioLighter is the company’s latest venture.
For a tastier, healthier meal cooked on the barbecue, give BioLighter a try. (Sku 870000, $4.99)

Pest insects have always been with us and so have beneficial insects to help maintain the balance of nature. Beneficial insects fill two main roles in the garden ecosystem: pollinators of plants and predators of pest insects. Ladybugs add attractive color to a garden while fighting pests! Release them at night (so they don’t fly away), at the base of plants. They naturally climb up plants and will eat aphids, mealy bugs, leaf hoppers and other destructive insects. They continue until the bad guys are gone, laying their own eggs in the process. When new pests arrive, fresh ladybugs will be waiting. Enjoy ladybugs indoors and out with a fun assortment of products, including these plates and platters, at all of our locations. Perfect for Mother’s Day!
