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.

Help! I Need Help!

Have you ever stared dazedly at endless shelves of medicine, miserably wondering which product would best suit your needs? Or maybe you’ve happened to glance at the ingredients list and been mystified by the amount of words that you can only dream of pronouncing. Richard Fine, CEO and co-founder of Help Pharmaceuticals, has decided that enough is enough and provided an alternative solution.

Help Pharmaceuticals believes that medicines should be simple to understand and only contain the ingredients your body needs to feel better. Even dyes, coatings, and other colorful agents used to make the medicines more visually appealing have been left to the wayside. Help provides a wide range of products to cover a variety of needs: allergies, insomnia, head ache, blisters, cuts, stuffy nose, and body ache. Even the packaging has reduced the amount of chemicals and processing involved. Only recycled paper pulp and bio plastic made from a corn starch base is used.

Help can be purchased from the website www.helpineedhelp.com, or you can make a trip to your local Walgreens, Target, or a variety of others listed on the site. They can also be followed on FaceBook and Twitter. Finally, a simply solution in an overly complicated world.
