Yet another week of cool and interesting Grommets. Here's what we featured this week:
Rickshaw Bagworks The “Zero” messenger bag from Rickshaw Bagworks is designed to eliminate wasted material. Scraps created during production are used in the bags and shipping materials, so nothing gets tossed. When it’s time to retire the bag (think years and years from now), it’s recyclable. (Starting at $35) Buy Rickshaw Bagwork's nylon messenger bags here.
Lunch Skins. Here’s a statistic that will spoil your appetite: Every day, more than 20 million sandwich bags from school lunches wind up in landfills in the U.S. Printed with cool graphics, LunchSkins are made from a food-safe cotton that the founders hunted down in Europe, where it’s used by patisseries and bakeries. The durable material can withstand exposure to heat, so you can pop LunchSkins in the dishwasher after use. ($16.50) Buy LunchSkins here.
Yantra Mat USA. Yantra Mats are 100% cotton, with non-toxic ABS plastic spikes. Simply lay on the mat on your back to stimulate the spine and relieve back/neck pain, or lay on your stomach to promote better digestive and respiratory health. The longer you use the mat, the more endorphins will be released, and you’ll feel calm and uplifted as your circulation improves. (Starting at $49) Buy the Yantra Mat here.
ARIEL7 Headphones. Aerial7’s Tank headphones bring the sound to match their hip looks, from low, rumbling bass tones to crisp highs. Thick cushions comfortably cocoon your ears, and the ear cup swivels so you can listen to music with one ear, DJ-style. The headphones come with two cables: a thick coiled cable for standard music players, and a thin, straight cable with a built-in microphone for use with an iPhone, BlackBerry and other cell phones. ($80) Buy Aerial7's cool headphones with a DJ style here.
Storage & Travel Bags. All the Bungalow bags are collapsible for easy storage and have reinforced riveted handles, so they can carry a lot of weight. They’re also water resistant and wipe clean easily. Zippy designs combined with easy functionality — what a fabulous way to celebrate your stuff and at the same time feel virtuously organized.
