Since March 2009 Strawsome has been working towards sufficient awareness and action to forever eliminate the need for single-use plastic drinking straws. Their mission is to provide the world’s most artistic, eco-friendly, and health-conscious drinking straw. Combined with a lifetime warranty and great customer service, there’s every reason to join the alternative straw movement and eliminate the need for single-use plastic drinking straws.
In my house, my kids are only familiar with glass straws + metal straws (next item). They are easy to clean with a special straw cleaner and my kids don’t have to chew on nasty plastic or cause more waste.
Onyx is a company who wanted alternatives to plastic. While searching for non-plastic bottles, cups, plates, snack containers etc. they discovered that anything of any quality is hard to find and over priced.
They believe that everyone should be able to buy safe and environmentally responsible products without breaking the bank. The products that they carry are of the highest quality, manufactured in responsible conditions and are very fairly priced.
What I like about this company, is that the founders use all the products themselves. They use high quality food grade stainless steel which is great for hot, cold + food safety. Another favourite in our house to drink from and we often hear my 2 year old saying “metal straw… metal straw.”
LunchBots was started by Jacqueline Linder, a mom who was concerned about chemicals in plastic leaching into her food. She knew that stainless steel was a healthier alternative, plus it was lightweight and unbreakable too. Jacqueline searched worldwide but couldn’t find high-quality stainless steel food containers, so she decided to design them herself.
In 2008, she started LunchBots in her garage. Today, LunchBots is still a family-owned business committed to designing healthy containers that make it easy for you to pack healthy meals to go. We have them in all sizes, shapes and colours which make it fun for the kids to choose which style they want on any given day. Whether it is for myself, or my kids, I am always carrying these containers in my bag.
Kiss your glass cleaner, chemicals and paper towels goodbye! Jude’s Miracle Cloth will clean better than all of them.
Microfiber as a raw material was first invented by Dr. Miyoshi Okamoto of Japan in the late 1970’s and the first commercial production of microfiber commenced in 1989.Since that time microfiber has been enhanced a thousand fold and endless new applications are still being discovered. One of the most exciting uses to emerge for this new textile is within the cleaning industry. When high-quality microfiber is combined with the right knitting process, it creates an extremely effective cleaning material. Microfiber textiles designed for cleaning are not just a cloth, but in fact a scientifically engineered precision tool that allows cleaning on a microscopic scale. According to field tests done at the University of California-Davis hospital, using microfiber materials to clean a surface reduces the number of bacteria by 99% whereas a conventional cleaning material reduces this number by only 33%.
This cloth is eco-friendly, Child & pet safe and saves on tons of paper towel rolls!
