If you’re like me, you wake up in the morning and the first thing you do is make a fresh cup of coffee. You probably also feel a little guilty about drinking it because it doesn’t say fair trade on the bag and isn’t organic. Premium Organic Cafe is a company that loves coffee as much as we do, and made a whole bean coffee that gives you a fresh start to the day while keeping your conscious clean.
I understand that you also want coffee that has spectacular flavor, I want that too, and this coffee has it! In my personal opinion the coffee offered by Premium Organic Cafe is some of the smoothest tasting coffee that I have ever had. Organic coffee has a fantastic flavor to begin with because it wasn’t made using chemicals and pesticides. The flavors aren’t so bold that they overpower your taste-buds, they are just strong enough to enjoy.
The selection that they offer is also really great, there’s a blend for almost anyone on their online store. You would probably expect to pay a fortune for a single up of organic coffee, much less an entire bag of it, but their prices are very affordable. I was surprised and impressed by the overall quality of the coffee offered by Premium Organic Coffee and I highly recommend checking out their website www.PremiumOrganicCafe.com.
When we think of technology, we think of wires buzzing and high speed information traveling through cables and connections that we can’t even see. It’s all fascinating, but what if we merged technology with basics that we are already familiar with and materials that we can fully trust and rely on? NYON is a company that is doing just that by creating wooden styluses that not only work, but that look good too!
The Estylo, a.k.a. The Pencil of Now, is a wooden dual tip magnetic stylus that was designed to work with the iPhone, iPad, Android, and any other touch screen device. The tip works in a variety of angles and it has been designed so that it will never scratch your screen. Aside from the super sleek design and functionality that the stylus offers, it comes in brilliant and vibrant color choices.
Most all styluses work and look the same. Chances are, you’ve come across or maybe even own a circular stylus that is heavy and made of metal or a cheap plastic material. Why settle for the same thing that everyone else has when you can own something special and unique. Stand out and get a product worth having. It’s stylish, sleek, and does its job.
If you’re like me, you have a hard time finding a wallet that works for you. I myself am environmentally conscious but hate to sacrifice great style. Surprisingly, not many companies are looking into ways to make accessories and functional items, environmentally friendly, with the exception of one very cool company called Paperwallet. This company is true to its name, they make wallets made out of Tyvek, a material that is 100% recyclable! How cool is that!? We think it’s probably the best idea we’ve herd in a very long time. Now, Paperwallet is all about keeping the green going, so that’s why they offer a really cool program where you can send in your old wallet and get a 15% coupon from them to use towards a Paperwallet!
Sounds pretty good right? It is, but we aren’t just saying they are awesome, we are using their products. The best part for me is the room and space in the wallet for all of my cards and cash. The quality of these wallets is another big point of discussion for new buyers. They look fantastic, but do they stand the test of feeling and using as high quality? Yes, they sure do. Upon first touching one of these artistic wallets you get the gist that it is a very durable and thick paper stock. A great company that is moving forward for our environment always deserves support, and that’s why we fully support Paperwallet 100%!

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!
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.
A major problem in most modern-day households is the identification of whose drink is whose. I can speak from past experience that this is something that has went on throughout time and didn’t seem to ever have an end in sight. The United States in particular is the largest purchaser of bottled water in the entire world, that should say something for itself. Around 70 million bottles of water are purchased daily in the U.S. and nearly 60 million of them end up in the trash. A contributing factor are those bottles thrown away because you simply don’t want to drink out of someone else’s bottle.
One rising company is changing the way we identify our bottles and making it easy and fun to keep track of which drink is yours! MiiBottle is a simple and easy to use system of identifying your bottle. You simply take one of their variously colored snap-on bottle identifiers and clip it onto the bottle with no hassle or instructions other than that needed. They also boast a neat dolphin design making it that much more entertaining just to regard a bottle as yours. But you may be wondering, what makes MiiBottle such a great company?
Well, for starters their products are made of 100% recycled material! It’s great to know that you have a product that you will actually use, but it makes it that much better to know that the product that you are using is made of recycled material! Another cool thing about this company is, they have solved an issue that is simple yet bothersome, and they have done so in a very innovative way!
We have had the opportunity to try these ourselves and they are as simple and easy to use as they look. You will notice that they have a firm snap around your bottles lid, so there are no worries about them falling off of your bottle. The colors are also very vibrant and look great, especially when there are multiple bottles using them! The packaging is simple and conveys the same overall idea of simplicity and problem solving and lets you know the true purpose of this life changing product, to simply make your everyday life easier, save you money on bottles you may’ve thrown away and provide a fun solution to an age old question, “Is that my bottle?” Now you will know, “Yes, it’s MiiBottle!”

Solé Bicycle Co. was created by two best friends in college who were fixated on making things more simple, and better yet using the small things that were accessible already. They wondered a simple question that they soon found the answer for, why were these simple and elegant bicycles so expensive and not easy to obtain? They wanted to change this and make a bicycle company that offered simple, unique, and affordable bicycles to the entire world. To this date they have sold and shipped bicycles to all every single state in the United States and to over 20 other countries.
When you think of bicycles, the image of a clunky and expensive bike usually comes to mind, Solé Bikes are unique in the fact that they are designed simply and made to accomplish everyday tasks such as getting you where you need to go with some of the highest quality materials available. It goes without saying that Solé Bikes have much more “sole” than most other bicycles in the market today. It seriously comes down to making a product that we all know and love easier to use and better looking, which is something that Solé Bikes accomplish with pride!
It’s not only healthier to ride a bicycle everywhere you go, to work, shopping, school, etc., but it is also much more particle and inexpensive! Think about it, would you rather spend time getting in a car, starting it up, shifting gears and doing all of that complicated stuff just to go down the road for one thing you may be needing, or would you rather grab your stylish bicycle and ride it, not using any gas at all, and get the same results? I think the answer is quite obvious. Solé Bicycles make affordable and good looking bicycles for the masses, it’s a no brainer, if you want a bike with “sole” then Solé is the way to go!
Chegg.com for those of you not in know is a website developed around in new trends in academic life. It’s a book store for college text books that not only allows you to buy these books but also gives you the option to rent. Renting text books is a trend that has grown quicker than the gremlin population at all you can eat buffet after midnight. Everyone is doing it know from the bookstores on college campuses across the nation to major corporations like Amazon. Now these website are useful for starving college students as they can save cash paying almost half price or lower for their text books, but there are several catches one must look at before deciding to rent books.
The first one is how responsible you are. You see me being the irresponsible college student I am, would forget to mail the books back to Chegg and since I used my irresponsible debit card to pay for it, the money gets taken out of my bank out when the due date hits. Putting people like my self out of money. The second item you have to look at when renting is whether you’re going to need the book in the future. College is supposed to get you ready for a professional career and further learning, as you might need to reference a text at your job because I actually didn’t learn anything like me. Go Me! So if I rented the book I can’t reference seeing as I had to return it, thus in my perfectly pessimistic world I lose my job. Anyway, so choosing whether or not to use Chegg ultimately depends on how responsible are you with time and money, with a little bit of foresight thrown in.
