Green Grab Bag

Green Grab BagOne of my favorite things when I was younger was getting grab bags and discovering what surprise was in them. As an adult this fun continues with a fantastic product called Green Grab Bag. Each month an assortment of health and beauty products that are of course natural will be sent directly to you.

When you first open your Green Grab Bag you will notice the super thoughtful packaging that it comes in. Before you even get to what’s inside it you feel like you’ve gotten something really important. You get at least six samples each month for only $15 a month or you can purchase a years subscription and save 20%!

You can cancel at any time, though I would bet that you won’t want to once you start getting these near little bags in the mail. The products are all high quality and you get more than your $15 value. The only way to discover what products you like is through samples, and these samples are very generous in size, you will be able to determine if you like what you’ve gotten. If you do then you have the option to buy full sizes of the things that you liked on their website at really great prices. There really isn’t much reason that you shouldn’t go and subscribe right now.

For more information or to subscribe or gift a Green Grab Bag visit them online at www.GreenGrabBag.com.

Eco-Emi

Eco-Emi BoxWhat would you say if I told you that you could stay home and get really cool environmentally friendly products sent straight to your door each and every month for only $15? Well, that’s exactly what Eco-Emi’s subscription service does! Every month your box will include five to ten samples of natural, organic, green, eco-friendly, cruelty free, vegan, vegetarian or Fair Trade products and they are all packaged and wrapped very nicely, perfect and ready for gift giving!

One of the coolest parts about this box is it’s a surprise as to what you will get. For me, the surprise alone is worth the price. There is a theme for each month, so for example the October box was packaged in some really fun halloween materials and one of the items in the box was a fantastic coffee flavored soap! It wouldn’t be fall without some coffee, or coffee soap that is! Everything from the packaging to the items was quite magical and makes you feel like you are getting something truly special.

Right now there is a waiting list for the box, which means that this little box is growing in popularity, and to that we are excited! Eco-Emi is a wonderful subscription box that deserves all of the attention it can get and the fact that their goal is to deliver high quality products that you can feel good about using right to you front door, is a goal that more and more companies should strive towards. To find out more about the box or to get on the waiting list, just visit EcoEmi.com.

Paperwallet

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%!

MiiBottle

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!”

If you are interested in helping them Kickstart this product and get it sold in more places while getting yourself a pack or two of these cool little things, check out the MiiBottle Kickstarter page to make a donation!

Dream Weaver Shop

The shop Dream Weaver is home to some pretty amazing tea, and you can find nearly any natural tea flavor you’re looking for. This shop makes buying tea as easy as placing a simple order, and waiting! According to Bob, the man who runs the Dream Weaver shop, “I prefer to sell whole leaf teas because they have much better flavor since when you cut the teas very fine to put them into tea bags they lose flavor from being exposed to air.” The tea also comes with a reusable tea bag that can be rinsed out after each use.

Bob’s site offers many options to customers, available for your purchase, he sells; green tea, black tea, chai, white tea, herbal tea, herbs, resins, and fudge. Bob sent two sample fall flavors to the magazine earlier this week, English Toffee, and Pumpkin Pie herbal tea; both of which were very refreshing. The two flavors, which were very different from one another, had a way of warming you after a day out in the cold.

If anyone has a strong love for tea, this is the place to go! Your quest for delicious, natural teas is over, just visit www.etsy.com/shop/dreamweavershop and get shopping, either for yourself, or for friends and relatives who love tea! This would make an excellent gift during the holidays!
