Edible Coffee Cup

Doesn’t..

Edible Coffee Cup

Edible Coffee Cup

get much smarter than this. Italian coffee brand Lavazza introduced an edible coffee cup that PSFK reported on a few weeks ago. The cup is just what it claims to be: 100% edible. Not completely sure about the availability, but be on the lookout and say good-bye to those paper coffee cups. Love this (and so does the environment)!

Robomow RL1000

One..

Robomow RL1000 $2500

Robomow RL1000 $2500

of my favorite people, my brother, recently introduced me to several tools and gadgets I never would have known about otherwise. One of which is the Robomow RL1000, a fully automated lawn mower. Seriously, this futuristic piece of machinery automatically departs from a base station at a scheduled time and takes care of a job that pretty much everyone dreads. It has innovative “grasscycling” technology, a system that allows grass clippings to decompose quickly and release valuable nutrients into the soil.  So, it’s environmentally friendly and collecting the clippings isn’t necessary. Umm, why wasn’t this guy around when I was growing up?

Kate Quinn Organics

Check him out..

Kate Quinn Organics

Kate Quinn Organics

at just over a year, he’s in the 90th percentile for height, 40th for weight, cannot sit still for longer than 3 seconds, and says “dada” and “mama” like the best of them. Physique and smarts aside, the kid’s rocking Kate Quinn Organics, so clearly he’s got style. Well, maybe I’m biased because he is my nephew, but this gift from Rene is a huge hit.  It’s made by former LA stylist, Kate Quinn, who started a line of baby clothes called Earth Organic Baby Basics in 2005. The brand was so well received that she decided to expand beyond baby wear and re-launched the collection in July of 2006 as  Kate Quinn Organics. The line now includes apparel and bedding for little ones as well as women’s clothes. While the assortment continues to grow, one thing that has remained true is the brand’s commitment to making quality products out of the finest 100% certified organic fabrics. She’s all about creating fashionable and environmentally friendly pieces that are super comfortable, on-trend and perfect for throwing on after a long day of crawling, falling, laughing, crying, and whatever else a 1-year old does.

from Veja seems like it would keep everything perfectly tucked away, and kept in its proper place. The brown suede with the contrast elastic band makes a great color combo and has an organic cotton lining. Veja always practices fair trade when producing their environmentally friendly products like shoes, bags and accessories. Nice looking pieces that probably only get better with age, makes it worth every penny.

Maptote Bordeaux Wine Tote $13

Broke Ass (wine) home in a winetote from Maptote. The name “maptote” does a pretty good job summing up what the brand does – they make really cool maps of different cities from around the world and silkscreen them on canvas.  It was started in 2006 by a pair out of Brooklyn.. their product line, as well as their distribution, just keeps growing. Right now, they have maptotes, mapnotes, onesies, and zip pouches.  All locally made to reduce the carbon footprint.
