This week we have two unique products for when you are on-the-go and three must-haves when you are at home. So whether you are indoors, or out, you can get your Grommet on!
A Better Bottle. ALEX lives up to its extraordinary moniker ("Always Live EXtraordinarily"). The body is built from 50% recycled stainless steel, and the carrying strap is made from recycled plastic water bottles. The middle joint makes it easy to clean (by hand or in the dishwasher) and simple to reconfigure. ALEX comes in two different sizes, and if you join half of the 32-ounce bottle with half of the 20-ounce bottle, you can expand your sizing options. (Starting at $25.95) Buy ALEX safe and easy to clean stainless steel water bottles here.
From Elixir to Mixer. Jovial King, a practiced herbalist, has achieved just the right balance of old and new in her refined bitters. Through her venture, called Urban Moonshine, Jovial harnesses the power of local plants to create intense flavoring agents by steeping herbs, roots, leaves, berries and fruits in alcohol. You can choose her Original blend, Citrus flavor or Maple bitters. We’re also featuring Urban Moonshine tonics, which are medicinal bitters such as Immune Zoom for fighting the common cold. These organic bitters and herbal tonics are packaged in glass apothecary bottles that perfectly capture the classic-yet-exotic spirit of Jovial’s creations.
