We now carry EcoBags for your sustainable home!

When you’ve got one of the best farmers markets in America, produce is plentiful. And when you’re trying to live as consciously as possible, plastic produce bags aren’t part of the plan. Mimi’s Attic is proud to now carry a variety of EcoBags: eco-friendly produce and bulk bags. Made from sustainable materials and easy to tuck into a larger bag, these are perfect for a trip to the market or to your local coop. Take it straight from the store to the drawer – no waste made. Wherever you get your produce – the grocery store, a CSA, or right from your backyard – these bags replace plastic alternatives. Did we mention they’re easily washable for repeat usage?

Score a product bag for $4.99, a mesh produce sack for $5.99, or get a mixed set of 3 for just $12.99.

Environmentally friendly solutions for spills and stains? They exist!

Just landed in the Attic: New Skoy Products! Created by two women inspired to find sustainable and long-lasting solutions to existing cleaning supplies. Don’t limit these to the kitchen – these can be used on everything from outdoor toys to your beloved hatchback.

The Skoy Sponge Cloth takes the place of 15 rolls of paper towels and can be easily cleaned in the dishwasher! And when your sponge cloth has finally seen its last day? Don’t throw it out! Skoy sponge cloths are 100% compostable and biodegradable, taking sustainability to the next level. We’ve got packs of four available for $7.49. Consider that a comparable amount of the environmentally-friendliest paper towels would weigh in around $150.

Need something a little bit tougher? The Skoy Scrub is here to help. Made from cotton and a non-toxic hardener, these scrub pads are built for strength – outlasting traditional scrubbers and saving cash and the environment, all at once. Score a pack of two for just $6.49
