We loved the collection from Solvetta, makers of fold flat lunchboxes in bright colors and patterns. FlatBox-LunchBox folds out to become a germ barrier placemat. The FlatBox-LunchBox is packaged and stored flat, further reducing the distribution cost by 50%. Solvetta is also looking into material alternatives to Neoprene, that are more sustainable and provide better insulation.

Makers of architectural glass, commonly used to skyscrapers, have been using the EnduroSheild technology for years in order to save water, chemicals, and labor that goes into cleaning. Now EnduroShield is available as a DIY kit for consumers. Applying this non-stick protective coating to glass, tile, ceramic, and stainless steel surfaces will allow the surface to repels grime, dirt, and soap scum. This means that you can extend the time in between cleanings, and use less solutions when you do clean!

    We use the Wash It detergent-less laundry system. No more toxic chemicals in our laundry or waste water.
