Ditch The Plastic For Good!

We love reusable bags…period. They save hundreds and even thousands of bags from going into the landfill every year for EACH person who uses them! Whether you prefer Envirosax, RuMe Bags, EnV Bags, Chico Bags or others… you’re helping the environment by saying NO to plastic and paper. When you’re grocery shopping, you also use flimsy plastic bags for buying fruits and veggies, and those have negative environmental impacts as well.

Gadgets + Toys = Fun!

There are certain toys every child of an era seems to have played with, whether Hot Wheels,  Cabbage Patch Kids, or simple marble games. When we grow up, we tend to leave the toys and games behind us for more serious and pressing matters which need our attention. Our gadgets become grown-up, too. But, who says we need to leave behind the fun of childhood once we’ve passed our summer vacation years?

Stapler That Needs No Staples? How Green!

The best part about people recognizing the need to be more conscious of the footprint they leave behind (other than saving the world, obviously), is the innovative products and ideas which are coming from this newly heightened awareness of how our actions directly impact the world around us. Whoever thought you could power a vehicle by pouring in used french fry oil? Power entire cities just by harnessing the movement of a windmill? Eliminate miles of waste by simply reusing bags instead of getting new ones everywhere?

Part of the 3 R’s we hear so much about (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle), is reducing the amount of “things” we use, and even though staples may seem like a small “thing” to reduce, why not? We have to begin somewhere, right? Now a new and innovatively designed Staple-Free Stapler has been introduced, which utilizes a snip-and-tuck design so it needs no staples, it simply uses the little tab it cuts in the paper to fold it back upon itself to securely hold up to 5 pieces of paper together. For typical offices, 70% of the time, you end up stapling a few sheets, so this is a perfect cost-saving AND waste-saving solution. And the added benefit? No more poking yourself with errant staples or stepping on the ones you’ve dropped on the floor.

Verdict: We LOVE it, and it’s now available at www.BrightandBold.com! The Staple-Free Stapler is available in 3 colors: silver, black or blue, it is less than $10 and a great stocking stuffer for the gadget lover and eco-friendly person on your list… or yourself!

BPA-Free Sippy Cups: Say Hello To Safety

Over the past year, the topic of Bisphenol-A (BPA) used in plastics, bottles and food containers has confused many. What is safe? What isn’t safe? What happens if I’ve been drinking from these containers for years? Although many tests have been conducted, the results have been questioned, and research continues. In the meantime, several countries have now banned the use of BPAs and millions of consumers are searching for alternatives.

Introducing The Safe Sippy, a BPA-free Stainless Steel Sippy Cup for toddlers and children that is a great alternative to plastic. Durable in construction, stylish in design, it comes in your choice of 3 colors: pink, green, or blue. Made of stainless steel and #5 safe polypropylene (for the handle and sippy), the handle is removable as the child gets older so the bottle can still be used and not look quite as toddler-ish.

Although there are many BPA-free Bottles on the market for adults, there are few designed for the age between baby bottle and adult version, so keep in mind The Safe Sippy, which passes all federal regulations for safety, and wins a design award in our book!
