Somebody That I Used To Know

By now I am sure that you have herd one, two, three, possibly more versions of this song than you can count. The question that is puzzling everyone’s mind is, which is the best? Somebody That I Used To Know is a song from Gotye’s new album, Making Mirrors. Walk Off The Earth has a widely popular cover of the song that has been featured on countless television shows, websites, and news articles. The video is nothing short of inspirational. Some big names, including Ingrid Michaelson, have even covered the song. Ok, this is a good song, but what about it makes it that special? My guess is the simple and relaxed tone that it conveys. Since we can’t decide which version is the best, we have chosen the top three and we will let you be the judge. Just click the artist you would like to hear sing it and fall in love with the song that has inspired millions!

Folding Water Bottles

I am all for going eco-friendly, but sometimes it isn’t easy or fun. Vapur is making it easy, fun, and simple! It all starts with a water bottle that you can use and reuse again and again! It’s a neat concept that is easily adapted into your everyday life. First of all, it is a water bottle that folds, now if that is not cool enough, each bottle comes with a built in clip that makes it simple and easy to clip onto a book bag, purse, or even a belt loop! You can take it virtually anywhere and you can hardly feel it because they are very light weight plastic material. Personally, I think they look pretty awesome. There are different sizes and series to choose from all ranging in price. There is even an artist series for those of you who don’t think a folding water bottle is unique enough (haha). The resources used to make one single water bottle are surmountable, so why not just simplify things and get a Vapur bottle and save the Earth one sip at a time!

Core Bamboo: A New Kind of Bowl

We were fortunate enough to be born into a more privileged environment. We view it as our responsibility to help those who weren’t.

Those words come straight from Core Bamboo’s website. The business, which sells dining, prep, and serving equipment made from organically grown bamboo, employs more than 2,000 employees around the world. These artisans and their communities all benefit from Core Bamboo’s presence, which might provide anything from medical opportunities to recreation.

Although it doesn’t necessarily seem like the go-to material for creating dishes, Core Bamboo has created several successful lines which include everything from napkin rings and pepper shakers to knives and bowls. Bamboo is lightweight, strong, naturally anti-microbial, and regenerative, making it a perfect candidate for reusable dishware. A simple hand wash using warm water and soap will keep pieces clean, and Core Bamboo suggests a light rubbing with food safe mineral oil to regenerate a tired-looking bowl.

In addition to knowing that every bowl comes from a sustainable grass rather than glass or wood, buyers will also be excited to know that these eco-friendly items also look great. Whether it’s a basic bamboo finish, a smooth solid coat of paint, or the elegant zebra-like stripes created by crushed bamboo, these items make a simple yet intriguing aesthetic statement.

The entire collection can easily be ordered directly from Core Bamboo’s website. Shops like Macy’s and Kitchen Couture also carry some pieces.
