Plates With A Purpose

Feb 25, 2021 | Blog, General, Product we Love

We believe in giving back and supporting organizations that are close to our hearts. And we love to partner with likeminded businesses to bring you unique products that are both functional and art. Even better if they have a purpose and help communities and organizations in need.

Plates With Purpose are American made and manufactured with pieces that are environmentally friendly processes and materials. Their focus is on 100% recycled glass that’s user friendly and created to withstand all the use you can dish out for generations. Each plate is designed to be timeless and durable allowing you to use them. Always committed to community, they developed Plates With Purpose, a line of plates that raises funds to support vital non-profit community organizations.

The collection includes inspiring designs to raise awareness and help fund a diverse group of charities and organizations. The best part? Each design correlates with a different charity. Full disclaimer – it’s going to be hard to choose.

Sunflower benefits POWER (Pennsylvania Organization for Women In Early Recovery)

And the one that is most close to our hearts – The Forget Me Not Plate.

The Forget Me Not Plate was designed by NY Artist Judy Smilon in honor of her father who had Alzheimer’s. Calgo Gardens will donate 50% of this plates’ purchase to Caregivers Connection Thru Music.

“They may forget what you said, but they will never forget how you made them feel.” Carl Buechner

Calgo Gardens is grounded in the belief that nature, art, and positive energy feed our spirits. If “earth” without “ART” is “eh,” Calgo chooses to nurture earth’s ART. Our style and feel is the result of consciously living our philosophy—harmony by design. eARTh will be alive with posts about Calgo-style garden ideas, plants and flowers we love, do-it-yourself projects, new items from THE BARN—and all the dirt (and fun!) that’s happening at Calgo!
