Our top 5 picks to Savor Life this summerJuly 24th 2012
While you are probably expecting a selection of delectable chocolate treats, you are in for a surprise with our top summer eco-picks! We’ll be sharing the sleek and sustainable products our team has personally tested and chosen as our favorites to help savor life both outdoors and at home. And maybe there will be one chocolate mention…would any list about savoring life be complete without it?
1. Stylish Solar iPhone Portable Charger – Our CEO doesn’t leave the office without this! Harness the energy of the sun and savor the natural world with this stylish portable charger for the iPhone or iPod. The flexible, extremely durable solar panel can strap onto your bag, is weatherproof and also recyclable. Plus it's a fashion statement all its own!
2. Sleek Bamboo Water Bottle – Hydrate in sustainable fashion with a sleek insulated bamboo bottle for cold or hot beverages. The easy-to-remove glass interior is dishwasher-safe and non-leaching. This turns heads wherever we bring it.
3. Durable Bamboo Utensil Set - Savor on-the-go bites with beautiful, durable and renewable bamboo utensils. This lightweight set of chopsticks, fork, knife and spoon will not stain or absorb flavors, and comes in a holder made of RPET (recycled PET plastic bottles). Perfect for hikes, picnics and beach days.
4. Recycled Wine Bottle Basil Garden – Bring your garden inside and cultivate organic basil year-round in a repurposed wine bottle. We love the sleek modern design and the fresh flavor basil adds to any dish.
5. PLA Hanging Bird Feeder – Experiencing the magnificence of nature’s most interesting creatures up close is one of our favorite ways to spend a summer morning. This hanging bird feeder is composed of sustainable PLA (corn-based resin) and recyclable bamboo string.
And one more for good measure…
6. Fairtrade Dark Chocolate Spread – We couldn’t resist. Our organic and Fairtrade Dark chocolate spread adds decadence without guilt (70% less fat!) to any summer treat. We especially savor it warmed in the microwave for a few seconds and drizzled over ice cream or fruit. It’s also the easiest chocolate to pack for s’mores around the campfire – you don’t need to worry about it melting in your bag!
What are your go-to items for summer adventuring? Are they helping to preserve the planet or could you find eco-alternatives that work just as well?
