Wool vessels are not a new concept, but there are several reasons to love these colorful 'SoftBowls' from the eco-conscious company Mio. Their wool content means the containers are both recyclable and compostable. In addition, creating the bowls uses only about 10% of the energy needed to make a similar ceramic vessel. And then, as if you weren't feeling good enough, SoftBowls are handmade in the USA at one of the last remaining millineries in the country. Pretty good for a simple little bowl.
