Eco Simplista gives back to the community this holiday season

Eco Simplista gives back to the community this holiday seasonHere at Eco Simplista, our sister company Alternative Constructors, we pride ourselves on being a local and family run company. We are grateful to the new opportunities Fort Lauderdale has provided for our eco-friendly company; we are continuing to expand and grow. But each day, as we drive into work, we are exposed to the harsh truth that not everyone in our bustling city is fortunate enough to have a hot meal on their table, let alone a reliable shelter.

So this year, Eco Simplista, is hosting its first annual food and clothing drive that will benefit an organization dear to Eco Simplista: The Jubilee Center of Broward County.

The Jubilee Center is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit agency that has been assisting those in need in South Florida for over 25 years. The Jubilee Center is a soup kitchen, food pantry and social services agency.

Every month The Jubilee Center provides over 3,000 life-sustaining meals. In addition to a meal, they provide the homeless with hygiene kits, clothing and walk-around bags of non-perishable food that does not require cooking. The Jubilee Center food pantry likewise provides boxes of food to families in need.

The Jubilee Center also assists individuals with getting Medicaid, food stamps, birth certificates, state ID’s and cell phones, as well as legal aid through Broward Legal Aid Society and counseling through Families in Distress.

With your help and participation, Eco Simplista hopes to contribute at least 30 pounds of food to The Jubilee Center by the end of the year. Here are some of the most needed items (anything and everything will help!):

  • Peanut Butter
  • Jelly
  • Canned Fruits/Veggies
  • Canned Tuna/Sausages/Meats
  • Canned Meals/Soups
  • Cereals (hot or cold)
  • Pasta
  • Rice
  • Beans
  • Toothpaste
  • Toothbrushes
  • Deodorant
  • Washcloths
  • T-Shirts
  • Sneakers
  • Shorts and Pants
  • Shampoo and Conditioner

It means a lot to Eco Simplista to give back to the community this holiday season. Please feel free to drop off any donations at the store (217 SW 33rd Court, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33315) Monday – Friday from 8:00am to 6:00pm and Saturdays from 10:00am to 2:00pm.

Mythic Paint – An Eco-friendly Paint by EcoSimplista

By EcoSimplista
Eco Simplista - South Floridas leader and supplier of eco-friendly building supplies and home solutions

New Address: 217 SW 33rd Court, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33315

There’s a conventional way of thinking when it comes to the word sustainable. A few things usually come to mind when I see the word. The first is color: light greens, rich browns, etc. If I were to paint a portrait of what I thought sustainability looked like, I’m sure there’d be a mesh of earth tones and maybe a dancing tree among the foliage. The second is probably health. Which can be tricky because it’s not readily available to the eye. I think we spend a lot of our time labeling products unhealthy by nitpicking all its negative attributes. Which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, it just makes it a challenge to trust a product at face value. And the last, and maybe the most prominent, is lifestyle. With almost every facet of industry pushing towards the sustainable movement, it’s hard to not feel the weight of green living thrusting itself into your homes. So how do we take a product’s word for it? Well, that’s a good question.

If you were to go to the mythic paint website (mythicpaint.com), the first things to catch your eye are their taglines: Stronger, safer, smarter paint and  ZERO TOXINS. INFINITE BEAUTY.  These are important things to notice because it’s their warm, welcoming handshake. You may have stumbled onto their site entirely unbeknownst. This may be your first stop on a crazed internet search for an eco-friendly paint for your home. Either way, this is how they’ve decided to introduce themselves. And it’s honest. The website itself has a plethora of information on their products having zero volatile organic compounds and carcinogens’ as well as a high resilience to odor. All positive attributes someone looking to paint a home would be interested in. But they don’t want you to just take their word for it, they want you to see it for yourself. They offer a ‘Legendary Performance Guarantee’ that refunds you entirely if you aren’t satisfied with their product.

Mythic Paint from Eco Simplista - South Florida

Mythic Paint from Eco Simplista

Mythic isn’t so concerned with the idea of being viewed as a sustainable brand because their products do most of the talking. Maybe its poetic irony, but I like the idea of using their earth tones to paint the sustainability portrait I was thinking of earlier. It makes sense to want a healthy product, but what’s safer than a product that cuts to the gist and tells you in bold letters ZERO TOXINS the moment they meet you. The sustainability movement started with the idea that we want products that are safe for people, animals, and the Earth itself. And by the look of it, Mythic has been on board all along.

Going Green with Antiques at EcoSimplista

EcoSimplistaWhat are some benefits of owning antiques and vintage furniture?

We are all aware that the environment is in a dangerous position and that for our planet to exist in the future, we need to change the way we live now. The atmospheric level of carbon dioxide increased 31% between the years 1800 and 2000, and we are watching the environment suffer in a multitude of ways as a result. Everything we do has the ability to affect the environment, and it’s important that we as individuals do what we can to minimize the damage. You can calculate your carbon footprint here to better understand the effect your daily life has on the environment.

One great way to go green is to furnish your home with antiques. By using antiques, you are giving them a new home and ensuring that they will stay out of a landfill. When garbage is piled in a landfill, bacteria break down the parts that are organic, and methane and carbon dioxide are released into the environment. Even though keeping an antique out of a landfill is only a small difference, each small difference matters. Antiques have a carbon footprint 16 times lower than newly manufactured pieces of furniture, making them a much more environmentally friendly choice.

EcoSimplista - 1603 EcoSimplista - 1609 EcoSimplista - 1611

In addition to the environmental benefits of antiques, they are often beautifully made, recalling an intricacy and detail that is difficult to find in modern furniture. Investing in antiques is inviting history into your home, welcoming pieces whose pasts are storied. Even if you find an antique piece that is damaged or has a chipping coat of paint, don’t be discouraged – nearly all antiques can be refinished to have new, fresh life.

EcoSimplista - 1574 There are many ways to reduce your carbon footprint and help the environment; if you’re looking for furniture, finding antiques is a great step. At Eco Simplista, we are always bringing in antiques. Follow us on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter to keep up with our new finds.

Restoring Faded Pavers with new Dyeing Process

A recent residential project – Restoring Faded Pavers in Austin, TX

This Texas application had faded brown pavers that needed rejuvenation. National Sealing Co is the largest paver sealer in the country with over 2 million square feet of pavers protected. We recognized a need to develop a coloring process for faded pavers. Fading of pavers is a fatal conclusion to the lack of continued sealing of pavers.
2015-03-10 12.50.44-800
The goal was to RESTORE the pavers, or come as close as we could to a natural look. We wanted to avoid the STAINED or PAINTED look which would render an unnatural look, and an ongoing maintenance issue. For vehicular applications staining and painting tend to ‘lift’ with hot tires. Our dye penetrates the porous pavers.

2015-03-10 12.19.45-800

For pavers with hues of various colors, the very small molecules in the dye combined with our customized application process will allow the various colors to still show.

Bamboo Flooring by EcoSimplista, South Florida

EcoSimplista of South Florida - eco-friendly building supplies and home solutionsNew Address: – 217 SW 33rd Court, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33315

Bamboo, a grass found in Asia, has a long history of being included in everyday life. The Chinese discovered how versatile and strong this grass is, and incorporated it into their daily lives, including weaponry, weaving, paper, and the binding of paper into books. There are over 400 species of bamboo grown in China and for centuries; its uses are innumerable. Ancient Chinese people used bamboo for everything from gunpowder to remedies: what a truly versatile plant.

In the early 1990’s, it was introduced as a type of hardwood flooring. Bamboo has a hardness that is comparable to other hardwoods used for flooring.

Advances in the Bamboo flooring industry have created a technique of strand-weaving Bamboo strands together.

  • Strandwoven Bamboo is harder than the hardest hardwood
  • Bamboo is sustainable and fast-growing
  • Bamboo flooring comes in a huge variety of colors and styles
  • Bamboo flooring is affordable
  • Bamboo flooring both saves you money, and helps protect the environment.
