Gaiam has developed a healthy, restorative Outdoor Relaxation Center that anyone can create in their own backyards.
"More and more people, including celebrities, are using recycled or environmentally-friendly products," said Lynn Powers of Gaiam. "Backyards are becoming outdoor living rooms."
To create your own Outdoor Relaxation Center, start with the ultimate in laid-back summer relaxation, the comfortable, durable and eco-friendly Ultimate Hammock. The unique fiber is impervious to water and UV radiation, yet is as soft and comfortable as cotton. No tree to hang your hammock on? Consider planting the perfect, fast-growing sustainable Paulownia Tree. The tree matures to over 30 feet high in three years, has a gentle Jasmine-like scent and will provide home shade in just 16-18 months.
Fill a Market Basket with your fresh fruit, books and supplies for relaxing outside. The thick base, sturdy handle and durable hand-crafted construction will provide years of use. Toss in an Organic Cotton Fireside Throw and the basket is almost complete. The densely woven 100% organic cotton throw with cashmere-like softness will keep chills at bay on cooler summer nights. Finally, add in a Relaxation or Meditation Music CD to unwind too while rocking in your hammock.
Whether seeking solitude or a cuddle with a loved one, these ideas we help you create an Outdoor Relaxation Center unique for you. Being outside helps you reconnect with Mother Nature, planting a tree is great for the environment, and relaxation is always good for the mind and body. The key to creating an Outdoor Relaxation Center is to anticipate your needs. Use citronella candles to keep bugs away. Have a table nearby so you can set a drink or book on it and don't forget the sunscreen.
