We challenge you!

This year we have a challenge for you- To Shop ALL LOCAL this holiday season. Whether you live in a large city or a small town, shopping local is not only good for your town or city, but it’s good for the earth as well- honest! Are you up for the challenge?

Current obsession: kids glass

Brought to you by Skyline Design, these super cute, eco friendly glass panels are the newest thing in children’s design.  The graphic illustrated glass is made for kids to doodle on, interact with and just plain have fun with!

“Kids glass is considered a sustainable material that is exclusively low-VOC or no-VOC. Skyline Design’s commitment to sustainability extends beyond the materials their products are made from. Cutting and polishing glass requires a lot of water to grind, polish and keep the surfaces clean. Skyline captures the water in their production process to be filtered and re-used. They also ship all of their products on a returnable frame system, so that they reduce the waste used to safely package the glass.”

Toms Shoes-  Super trendy, super comfy and made from recycled materias! Score! We can’t get enough of these kicks.  Aside from the style and comfort of these shoes, for every pair that YOU buy, a child in need gets a pair. How cool is that?  True definition of a win-win.

Peak Organic brewing company- Summer session ale.  For those beer loving Dad’s.  Ingredients for the brew come from organic local farmers. Enough said!

Surge, hybrid iphone charger- brought to you by NOVOTHINK, these stylish iphone cases not only protect your phone, they add battery life too!  State of the art solar panel technology allows your phone to power up using solely the sun! Plus, there’s a color choice for every Dad.  Cool.

Eco Friendly pick of the week: Reusable Straws!

We are totally loving these stainless steel reusable straws!  Not only are they resusable, they are produced from stainless steel which is a low carbon steel that comes from mostly recycled steel scrap AND it has corrosion resisting properties which means you don’t have to use harsh chemicals to keep it clean! Stainless steel is 100% recyclable and an overall great material to use when considering kitchen appliances, banisters in your home, office etc.

Now back to these straws- Your little ones will love then with a glass of milk, a home made smoothie, or juice! And as an avid iced coffee drinker, you better believe I’m using these cool straws myself!
