Target sent over some items from its new collection of exclusive eco-friendly outdoor living products designed by MIO. You may remember that I tried out the gardening tool set, but now I'm onto the MIO Organic Cotton Fabric Hammock ($59.99) from the collection. It's made from 100 percent cotton, and has an attached storage pouch for the hammock when it's not in use. To hear what I thought of this hammock, read more
Philadelphia-based MIO, which was founded in 2001 by brothers Isaac and Jaime Salm, produces fun, modern, eco-friendly home furnishings and accessories. I recently featured MIO's new Tyvek textiles, and the brothers are also launching a MIO for Target line this month.
I've been busily testing some of the new MIO for Target products. Since I'm in the middle of Spring gardening mayhem, I first tried out the trowel, cultivator, and weeder ($7.99 each).

While you may use Tyvek to cover your car or construct your house, I doubt that you use any for home decorating. That might be about to change, though. Philadelphia design firm MIO has transformed this most utilitarian of fabrics into pretty designs suitable for use as decorative home textiles. The company's first Tyvek fabric design is called "Loop," and is printed with a pattern on one side and a solid color on the other.

On April 12, Target will introduce a collection of exclusive eco-friendly outdoor living products designed by MIO, which is known for its green design of sustainable, functional items. The line will include a watering can, trowel, cultivator, weeder, mini herb garden, solar lights, hammock, and composter all made from recycled and renewable materials, and will range in price from $6.99 for the trowel to $99.99 for the composter. I'm excited to see that Target is making an effort to bring sustainability to the masses through good design. I'm loving that curved handle of the watering can, and the compost bin has a beautiful design as well. Can't wait!
