Before science was invented, going green used to mean chugging a 2-liter bottle of broccoli juice, then spinning around a baseball bat for 30 seconds. Exercise a healthier expression of blue and yellow's love child with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of home décor, accessories, and more from Greener Grass Design. Greener Grass Design rounds up home décor and personal accessories from designers worldwide that adhere to the company's high style and environmental and quality standards. Adorn your earlobes in an avian manner with silver lyrebirds earrings ($40) or proclaim your affinity for horned ungulates with a deer T-shirt ($38). Foraging for fruit to display in a bone-china farmers’ market fruit basket ($16) becomes a more productive venture when it’s carried home in a durable waterproof plaid bag ($10) instead of by a small herd of benevolent armadillos. Greener Grass Design also caters to the discerning animals of the house with a dashing bowtie dog collar ($18) or an airplane- or tank-shaped playhouse for particularly imaginative kitties ($32).
