Eco-friendly hardware can certainly be a challenge to find, but Eleek Incorporated of Portland, Oregon offers a hip line of recycled metal hardware for your home. Their offerings include door handles, door pulls, switch-plates, house numbers, and signs in addition to unique lighting options and beautiful recycled metal sinks for bath and kitchen.
Eleek is dedicated to sustainability — running on 100% green electricity, using soy-based inks whenever possible, re-using and recycling their own waste, and making sure that 80% of their materials come from within 50 miles of their shop. Their company car even runs on biodiesel, getting 50+ miles to the gallon.
Their designs are mostly rustic-feeling, but while some are decorative, others are sleek and minimalistic. For all of us who have been searching in vain for a great green hardware company, it looks like Eleek has granted our wish. I personally love the house numbers (featured above) as well as their 90% recycled cast bronze farmer sink (below).
