Wipe Your Slate Clean (and be Green)


I’m the type of person who writes everything down, from daily schedules to shopping lists to reminders to chores. Since my scribbling hand could blow through a whole pad of post-it notes in a single day, an eco-friendly alternative is a must. Marker boards are too tacky (and rarely green), so I went classic.

Salvaged from an old school room and fitted with a recycled wood ledge, the Vintage Slate chalk board is a sustainably sound choice for avid organizers like myself. Plus, this modest piece is a lot more stylish than the bright little pieces of paper that once adorned my desk and fridge. (Available at VivaTerra for $159.)
