Even though we recycle the empty plastic bottles, I still feel guilty buying them. That’s why I’ve been trying …

G’day, eh? BottleMate Review

Just like spending time in Australia, the BottleMate just makes things fun.  The BottleMate looks like a cross between a fingernail clipper and fifteenth century torture device.  Its purpose, however, is to access necessary liquid contained in otherwise locked up containers.  Ok it’s a beer bottle opener.  But it’s fun.

Equal Time for Cold Drinkers – The Fridge

There are plenty o’ devices and gizmos out there to help keep your coffee hot, but for those who prefer refreshments at the opposite side of the thermometer there is only a dearth of either lame Styrofoam “coozies” or tepid “peltier effect” boxes with fans.  But I had forgotten about The Fridge — a freezable …

How many paper cups do you trash in a day?

Here’s another Earth Day idea… It’s the “I am not a paper cup…” cup. It sure looks like a paper cup, but it’s actually a porcelain cup with a silicone lid. It might look like it’s more a novelty product, than something serious, but it has double walls to keep your beverage insulated and hot. …
