I’ve gushed over Philadelphian green design firm MIO in the past and I’m proud to do it again. Launching April 12 for a limited time at Target stores and on Target.com is the MIO for Target line of eight outdoor living items ranging in price from $7.99 (three different bamboo-handled gardening tools) to $99.99 (a composter). With spring gardening seasoning kicking off, the timing couldn’t be more perfect.

Other items in the line include an indoor/outdoor solar light ($24.99), a portable hammock made from organic cotton ($59.99), a watering can made from recycled materials ($24.99), and my favorite, a parsley, basil, and cilantro herb garden housed in a post-consumer recycled paper pot ($12.99).

Plan your next visit to Target (and to your garden) accordingly and check out MIO's recycled 3-D Wallpaper Tiles while you're at it. Also, quick props to another Philadelphia-based business: Duross and Langel. I stumbled upon D&L's impressive, eco-friendly bath and body product emporium this past weekend and picked up some soy candles for Earth Hour.
