21 Cool Doormats: Colorful, Coir, Recycled & Eco-Friendly

doormats-natural-recycledIf you’re looking for the perfect doormat for your home, there are undoubtedly a lot of options available. The good news is – many of these options are also easy on our planet. I found a great selection of cool doormats that are made with eco-friendly materials, including many that are fully biodegradable. Coir doormats, for example, are made with natural coconut fibers. When a 100% coir doormat wears out, you can simply toss it into your compost bin.

And if you like to welcome your guests with a little fun – I found some laser engraved doormats by a company called Damn Good Doormats that puts hilarious slogans on their unique selection of funny welcome mats. I also found cool doormats made with recycled and upcycled materials, like reclaimed lobster ropes and flip flops. With so many cool, eco-friendly doormats available, there’s no reason to buy any other kind!


Cool Doormats in Coir and Natural Fibers

Natural Coco Fiber Doormats
Doormats made from natural fibers are always a good bet. Once they’re worn out, they will eventually biodegrade and be less destructive to the environment. In some cases, if the doormat is made with 100% natural fibers, like coir doormats (which are made from coconut husks), they can be cut up and used as mulch for gardening, or, as mentioned above – tossed into your compost bin. Many of the welcome mats I present here are made of all natural coir. It’s an ideal eco-friendly material for doormats because you don’t feel badly about disposing of them once they wear out.

17 Suncatchers: Rainbow Makers for Your Home

“Life throws challenges, and every challenge comes with rainbows and lights to conquer it.”
―Amit Ray

Isa the Black Cat and a Rainbow Suncatcher
Isa, UniGuide founder Kristen’s cat, enjoys some suncatcher energy, while possibly fine tuning her third eye sensibilities.

Crystal suncatchers, or hanging window crystals, have a way of bringing more joy and tranquility into your home. They also make wonderful housewarming gifts! You can find them in virtually every shape and style to suit your personal aesthetics and home décor. At UniGuide, we believe that every home should have some extra rainbow makers. (In addition to your radiant self, that is.) So, we went on a quest to find the world’s most beautiful hanging crystals.

But first, some rainbow lore…

Rainbow Symbolism and Spirituality

Rainbows are one of nature’s most beautiful gifts, and not surprisingly, they’ve had symbolic and spiritual meaning in virtually every culture throughout history. In Norse mythology, the rainbow serves as a bridge that connects Earth with “Asgard,” which is the home of the Norse Gods. To the Aboriginal people of Australia, the Creator is a rainbow snake. And in Judeo-Christian stories, the rainbow symbolizes God’s promise, dating back to the time of Noah’s Ark, when God promised that that the world would not be destroyed by another flood. And in Buddhism, the rainbow represents the highest state of consciousness before achieving Nirvana. (Wikipedia.)

The Rainbow Chakra Connection

The seven Chakras are key energy centers in our body through which our life force flows.

In Hindu, Buddhist, and New Age philosophies, the seven chakras, which represent the energy systems in the body, match the colors of the rainbow. Just as “white” sun rays hit raindrops and bend in different angles, forming the colors of the rainbow, the theory behind chakra balancing or chakra tuning, and sometimes referred to as “rainbow healing,” is that it enables the light from a higher power to enter us, tone our chakras, and heal us.

But even if you don’t consider yourself a spiritual person, and you simply appreciate the science of how rainbows occur, in all likelihood – you’re willing to admit that rainbows are beautiful and that they make you feel good.

And this is why we are publishing this post. While the extraordinariness of rainbows in the sky makes them all the more special to us (even if you’re lucky enough to live in the South Pacific, where they can be quite plentiful), it’s still fun to get some extra rainbow energy into your home by putting suncatchers in your windows. Here are some of our favorites.

Swarovski Crystal Suncatchers

We’re starting this list with Swarovski crystal suncatchers because we’d like to give a shout out to Swarovski AG, the company that makes Swarovski crystal. You’ll see a number of suncatchers throughout this post that use Swarovski crystal.

Swarovski Austrian Crystal Sun DiskSwarovski is a family-owned company based in Austria. Company founder Daniel Swarovski was born in northern Bohemia in 1862 and was the son of a glasscutter. According to Wikipedia, he patented an electric cutting machine that facilitated the production of crystal glass. Swarovski crystals are manmade, but utilize quartz, sand, and minerals. The exact proportion of these elements in the crystal is a company secret.

Swarovski crystal is special because it has the beauty and sparkle of a precious gemstone, but it’s created by a company that believes in maintaining ethical social and environmental standards. Daniel Swarovski is quoted as saying, “Supporting social and environmental projects is the obligation of any responsible company.”

Sparkles with Good Karma

Awareness has grown in recent years about the tolls that the precious gemstone trade, for diamonds, rubies, sapphires, and others, takes on workers who mine them as well as the environment. You’ve probably heard the term “blood diamonds,” which refers to this. (The film “Blood Diamond,” starring Djimon Hounsou and one of our environmental superheroes, Leo DiCaprio, is a great movie that’s set around this issue.) While there are organizations that are trying to build more accountability into this industry, we are still a ways off from ubiquitous fair trade and environmental sustainability certifications in the precious gemstone industry.

This is why we are fans of Swarovski crystal. While quartz, like precious gemstones, is a non-renewable resource, it is also one of the most commonly found minerals in the Earth’s crust. And we were happy to see that some of the artisans creating the window suncatchers we show here use recycled Swarovski crystals.
