Video: Plastic State of Mind

With the millions of videos hoping to get you to better understand the perils of plastic to both our health and our environment, we’ve work to find and share the best ones we can (see some of them  here, here and here). This video today, Plastic State of Mind, is really impressive in the fresh beats it brings to the plastic bag issue.

It’s not just plastic bags that are a hazard to our health and our environment, but it is one small difference you can make. Now, do you still use single-use plastic bags? If so, do you recycle? If not, how do you remember to bring your reusable bags?

The Plastic Bag Gets Its Own Mockumentary

Check out this ‘mockumentary’ narrated by Academy Award winner Jeremy Irons on the path of the disposable plastic bag.

Is It Taste? 20/20 Tests Bottled vs. Tap Water

I often hear people saying that bottled water just “tastes” better and that’s why they buy bins of bottles water. I had seen this 20/20 segment that centered on the taste factor of water. Even I was a bit shocked by the results, so watch and let us know what you think: is there a difference in taste?

Video: Making a Better Glass Water Bottle

It’s taken nearly two years since Laurel’s first sketch to our final product’s debut coming in 12 short days. As we worked with industrial designers, mold-makers and glass makers, we went through many modfied versions. But our committment at every phase was to creating a bottle that was made with recycled glass, that highlighted the natural beauty of glass and that blended high design with a functional, resuable, responsible bottle.  I love this video we made showing our first bottles being made in an early phase. You’ll see the effort to heat the glass, mold the glass and refine it to finish.  It’s beautiful, don’t you agree?

What is the Housewares Show?

In our excitement to share our upcoming debut, I realized you might be asking just what is the International Home + Housewares Show?  We found this video to be a good recap of just who is at the show and just what you might expect. Enjoy!
