Metro Man & Metro Home

By Kim Taylor

Embrace summer with these three ingenious Metro Home products that will keep everything fresh as a summer daisy.

It’s summer in the city, and the last thing you want is to have to cook or broil something in the oven. Toast it instead, and toast it in style. The T-fal Toaster is the toaster with the most-est because it’s built to last, and wide enough to accommodate our famous NYC bagels. It can stand up to constant summer use. Available in an array of styles at http://www.t-falusa.com and at http://www.amazon.com, the durable T-fal will render this summer the Summer of Toast.

Bring the summer garden inside with one of Soap and Paper Factory’s soy candles in Geranium, Gardenia, Jasmine, Verbena or Lavender. And the Roland Pine candle will transport you a cool forest or winter setting. All of the Soap and Paper Factory candles are green, infused with essential oils, and clean burning with a cotton wick. The http://www.soapandpaperfactory.com website is beautiful to look at, too – you’ll love their other products: soaps, hand cream, solid perfume and more.

The Green Garmento is an idea long overdue and appreciated: it’s a green garment bag that doubles as a hanging hamper, which can also be carried as a shoulder bag. Perfect for traveling and for storing clothing at home, it replaces plastic garment bags (there are 300 million pounds of single-use plastic garment bags that clog landfills and waterways), and comes in green, black, orange, blue, red and green. It’s also quite affordable. Find it at http://www.thegreengarmento.com.

Keep it green this summer — and when in doubt, simply toast it.
