wooden sunglasses ›  

Summer will soon be upon us!

For me, that means long days spent with good friends under the warm rays of the sun. 
Some of my favorite summer past times are bike rides, pool time, running, and exploring parks and festivals. Really anything outdoors is perfect for me during the summer!
While partaking in all these activities, I want to be stylish but also protect my eyes from the harmful sun rays. Mato's polarized wooden sunglasses  takes care of both of those in one!
They have so many different frames to choose from that work for a range of face sizes and types. It's really hard to choose a favorite but so far I have been wearing the Duwood Fashion wood Clubmasters  every day.
So what sets Mato Naturals  Sunglasses apart from the rest? Two things.
Wooden frames and polarized lenses.
Mato sunglasses are made of 100% natural wood and guaranteed to last over years. The perfect pairing of durability and fashion within a pair of eco-friendly sunglasses!
The polarized lenses mean that your eyes are 100% protected from all the harmful UV rays; UVA, UVB, and UVC. Almost like sunblock for your eyes. While regular sunglasses are simply like wearing a shirt to prevent a sunburn. It might seem like it's enough at the time but you'll regret it later! If you need another reason to like polarized lenses let me tell you that they cut down on glare make squinting obsolete and your reflexes that much faster! It especially comes in handy while driving on those bright, sunny days!
For a limited time, Mato is giving away a FREE bamboo case with every pair of sunglasses you buy AND all there sunglasses are on sale! So zoom over to their sunglasses page and pick your favorite pair (or two!) and get ready to show them off to all your friends!

Girl meets lex discovers Mato Naturals!

Hello Mato Lovers!

I'm Ella from I first came across Mato Naturals on instagram and quickly became a fan. The first thing that caught my eye was their great range of natural and eco-friendly products

I've since met the duo behind Mato and have fallen in love with some of their products. Particularly, the 3d Fiber Mascara and Polarized wooden sunglasses

For my first two blog posts, I'm going to feature these products because I love them so much!

Let's start off with the Green Tea 3D Fiber Set.

The two most important things to me about this mascara are that it's easy to use and has simple, natural ingredients.

I was a little anxious to try the mascara because it is a three step process with two tubes and it sounded like a lot of work. But I promise it is so easy to use.  If I can do it, you can too!

The two tubes of mascara are the gel (water, beeswax, lanolin, castor oil) and the fiber (green tea).

I think of the steps almost like paint.

You use the gel first- this is like the primer. It gets your lashes wet and ready for the fibers. The gel has a black tint to it so if you're not looking for volume some days this is perfect. Just apply the gel and go!

Now if you're looking for volumization and oomph (like me!) you put the fiber on next. The fibers look funny at first but you use the wand just like mascara. My tip for this step is to experiment with how much fiber is good for your lashes. When I first started using it I got a little excited and applied too much. It looked good but some fibers would fall throughout the day and it was because I had put on more fiber than my lashes could hold. So just apply lightly to begin and use a little more every day until you reach the perfect amount for you!

The last step- that is very important- is the gel again! This is your sealant. It smooths down all the fibers and makes sure they stay on your lashes and look fabulous.

Some other benefits of the 3d mascara are that it's waterproof (yes!) and there is a 30 day money back guarantee. So you really have nothing to lose and beautiful eyelashes to gain!

Enjoy Nаturе-Gіvеn Cоmfоrt with Bаmbоо Shееt


'Slеер is a nаturаl реrіоdіс ѕtаtе оf rеѕt оf bоth mіnd аnd body in whісh the соnѕсіоuѕnеѕѕ is completely оr раrtіаllу lоѕt. Durіng ѕlеер the brаіn undergoes a characteristic сусlе of brain-wave асtіvіtу thаt includes іntеrvаlѕ оf dreaming'.

Thіѕ proves how іmреrаtіvе іt іѕ to ѕlеер well at nіght іn оrdеr tо ensure proper functioning оf уоur mіnd and bоdу thrоughоut thе dау.

In оrdеr to experience аll thе goodness оf a ѕоund ѕlеер, you nееd tо feel соmрlеtеlу rеlаxеd when уоu сlіmb in bеtwееn ѕhееtѕ аnd to a great extent іt іѕ уоur bеddіng, mеаnіng the ѕurfасе thаt уоu ѕlеер оn, whісh іѕ responsible fоr рrоvіdіng thіѕ fееlіng. Who wouldn't lіkе to enjoy thе luxurу оf ѕlееріng on a соmfоrtаblе bed covered with thе ѕоftеѕt bеd-ѕhееt whісh аmоngѕt other things is аlѕо capable оf regulating tеmреrаturе? Thеrеіn еmеrgеѕ thе option оf bamboo sheets аnd surprising though іt mіght appear, it is іndееd thе long fоrgоttеn bamboo thаt provides thе softest bedding mаtеrіаl.

Bаmbоо ѕhееtѕ hаvе rіѕеn to fame during rесеnt times nоt just оwіng to their fіnе ѕоft ԛuаlіtу but аlѕо thеіr antibacterial, аntіfungаl and tеmреrаturе rеgulаtіng рrореrtіеѕ thаt аrе іnhеrеnt to this species. Since these аttrіbutеѕ are retained even after thе bamboo has bееn transformed іntо ѕhееtѕ, thе ԛuіlt thаt is produced is аll-ѕеаѕоn іn nature, mеаnіng іt саn bе uѕеd tо keep warm іn ѕummеrѕ and cool durіng wіntеrѕ.

Mоѕt іmроrtаntlу whаt has саught everyone's imagination іѕ іtѕ built-in resistance tо bасtеrіа and fungі like mildew, mold and so on. Courtesy of this trait, іt іѕ оnе of thе fastest grоwіng rеnеwаblе ѕоurсеѕ in thе forest wоrld. Thеrеfоrе, after having bееn mеtісulоuѕlу wоvеn, thе оutсоmе іѕ a hіgh ԛuаlіtу, ѕоft and аntі-аllеrgіс luxurу ѕhееt which is perfect for all аgе grоuрѕ аnd is еѕресіаllу a good сhоісе аѕ kіdѕ' bedding.

Aѕ іѕ unіvеrѕаllу known, children have thе mоѕt dеlісаtе ѕkіn аnd іt does nоt tаkе muсh fоr a ѕmаll rаѕh to аggrаvаtе into a full-flеdgеd іnfесtіоn. Thеіr skin nееdѕ рrореr саrе аnd thе softest mаtеrіаlѕ, еѕресіаllу durіng the time thаt thеу ѕреnd іn bed аnd оnе of thе wауѕ оf еnѕurіng thіѕ еntаіlѕ uѕіng bаmbоо sheets аѕ part оf kids' bеddіng. An аddеd advantage is thаt bаmbоо does nоt rеԛuіrе pesticides tо grow and hеnсе іѕ mоrе organic as соmраrеd to оthеr mаtеrіаlѕ. So уоu might аѕ wеll rеѕt аѕѕurеd thаt уоur child іѕ sleeping оn a surface whісh іѕ completely frее оf сhеmісаlѕ.

Truly аdvаntаgеоuѕ іѕ the fасt thаt еvеn after ѕеvеrаl wаѕhеѕ, bаmbоо ѕhееtѕ аrе аblе tо rеtаіn their natural рrореrtіеѕ, namely ѕоftnеѕѕ, anti allergic аnd temperature rеgulаtіоn tо thе maximum. Thus, by using thеѕе, уоu need not wоrrу аbоut уоur child саtсhіng соld, gеttіng ѕоrеѕ or falling victim tо соntаgіоnѕ thаt thrive іn humіd conditions.

Top 5 reasons to choose a sustainable Eco-friendly lifestyle

Looking at the products around you in your home or office, you will be surprised to know that most of these products are harmful to the environment in ways you could not have imagined. So, what is the way out?

Here are a  few  points that are worth considering when you decide to buy a product. You should check the item on the basis of a few guidelines like

  1. Adverse effect on the environment:

Firstly, make sure that the item you plan buying  does not cause any kind of contamination to the environment, either through air or water because contamination of the environment has adverse effect on human and  pets in our homes.


  1. Detrimental to health:

Some products contain chemicals that are so pungent that you can't stand them even for a few minutes, which are hazardous when use at  home especially if you have infants. This product requires extra carefulness like; cleaning your home often to keep the place clean for your kids to crawl, walk and run; to avoid the stress, make sure that you choose only natural products. In fact, you can prepare room fresheners or cleaning agents at home, if you practice DIY solutions.



  1. Toxic effect:

You may not know that some products containing chemicals can cause illnesses like headache, nausea or allergy. Some product contains some heavy metals which, when inhaled in little or minute quantity can cause cancer.  So, opt for natural, home-made alternatives that are mild to use, safe for health and easy to prepare.


  1. Money spent:

When you shop for eco-friendly products, you may feel that the prices are quoted higher than you expected, only a few vendors come  forward to sell them . There are many reasons for this-less demand lack of awareness among buyers and the not-so-popular methods of manufacturing these items. But, all said and done, even if you pay a few cents extra for a noble cause, it should make you feel good. You should feel encouraged to patronize such products and spread a word or two about them to your contacts.


  1. By-products:

Strikingly, even when an eco-friendly product crosses its lifespan and is reprocessed for reuse, there is no harm done to the environment in lieu of the by-products. But, this is not the case with items that contain a large amount of dangerous chemicals. Hence, this is definitely considered to be one of the pivotal advantages of choosing and buying Eco-friendly products for our daily activities


Why Sustainability?

Eco-friendly products offer huge benefit to every user and their environment. Health and life quality are kept and improved when there is consistency in using these natural materials since the environment will be void of dangerous toxins that cause much harm.

Eco-friendly products are very affordable and yet with many organic health benefits. They are naturally made from bamboo, wood etc. without any mix of chemicals. Chemically produced items are mostly very expensive since the chemicals used are expensive and the manufacturers need to get their cost back.

Help Rebuild Nepal From Recent Earthquake

As you all know by now the beautiful country of NEPAL was hit with an earthquake of magnitude 7.9 on 4/25/15 that has ravaged the nation. Lack of infrastructure there has greatly increased the level of difficulty in rescue efforts. Death tolls are over 5000 and rising. Historic landmarks and World heritage sites, (some dating more than 1500 years) were completely destroyed in the process and reduced to piles of rubble. IMMEDIATE needs include medical assistance, search and rescue, food and water and shelters for the now homeless. 

Being away from home at these time is a worse feeling. It has been a rough past few days for every Nepalese. we can only imagine what must have gone through  all the Nepalese back home. No matter where we are in the globe we all Nepalese  shared the same feeling of darkness, uncertainty and despair for past couple of days. Added to these feelings was a feeling of helplessness  for those who are residing abroad. We would like to share a voice for all Nepalese living abroad.

We at Mato urge all of you to please donate as much as you can. People in Nepal need lot of help and support at this time. Every little bit counts. You can donate to bunch of organizations directly.
