Ponte has been showing off all of our green efforts for years, from our Best Management practices in the Vineyard, to the Clean the World program we’ve adopted in our Hotel. But did you know that our green efforts extend even to our Marketplace? Today, I want to highlight some of the eco-friendly gifts we carry at Ponte. These items have become top sellers and it’s easy to see why.
First is our Bamboo Ponte T-shirt. These cute and really comfortable soft tees are made from Bamboo fibers. Bamboo grows at an incredible speed and is biodegradable to boot! These shirts come in women’s sizes extra small through extra large and are naturally antibacterial and breathable without chemical additives. Bamboo T’s: $42.00
Recycled Wine Bottle Candles from Paddy Wax
Next up are recycled wine bottle candles from Paddy Wax. These soy candles come in eight scents like Bamboo & Green Tea, Basil & Cucumber and Mandarin & Lavender, to name a few. They are hand-poured into recycled glass wine bottles.
These candles are so popular, so hurry and pick out your favorite scent! Eco-friendly Candles $32.00
Pacifica Body Products
Last is our line of Pacifica body products. This vegan line of great-smelling products is not tested on animals and come in beautiful packaging, perfect for gift giving. With scents like Tuscan Blood Orange, Hawaiian Ruby Guava and Waikiki Pikake, you will relax at first sniff. Pacifica also donates a portion of their proceeds to support clean water in the Pacific, so you can feel good each time you use it.
Products range from $14-$40 and are available in many scents and set combinations.
Stop by the Ponte Marketplace 10am to 5pm, 7 days a week.
