There are so many really cool start-ups out there, many come through my inbox. Most are projects that are trying to get funded via kickstarter, I wish I could help kick-start many/most of them but that’s just not possible. The next best thing to dishing out dough, to help another reach their dreams? Sharing their project with others, with hopes that maybe someone else can help make a dream come true. Here are 5 really cool projects that I’m totally into and maybe you will be too.
The Cortiça : A 12 oz porcelain travel mug wrapped and insulated with cork. Sustainable, eco-friendly and bio-degradable. I personally really dislike the way any hot drink tastes out of those plastic travel mugs, like I’d almost rather drink outta a paper cup (sorry Earth). A travel mug that will make sure my coffee tastes just the way it does at home? Putting that in my shopping cart, for sure. Check it out.
Nomadix : A towel for every activity, made to have the features of a regular hot yoga towel (my best way to describe it) but suited for so many activities and in really fun patterns. These towels are absorbent, quick drying, slip resistant, light weight, reversible, anti microbial, and made for recycled materials. I use a similar towel for hot yoga, so would be super keen to try a funky one like this. Check it out.
OmieBox : A lunch box that will pack both cold and hot meals and has movable separators to make packing a little lunch without all that extra “packaging” super easy. Basically there is a removable thermos, that is super easy for kids to use and still tons of space to pack the rest of their lunch. This would make packing lunch in one easy to carry container super easy. I don’t know about you, but finding a really great lunch box takes quite a bit of searching – this one basically combines all the things I have looked for except, all in one cute little box. Check it out.
Naja : Really pretty high quality lingerie, made by single mothers or female-heads of household – so you get some really unique undergarments while giving a single mother a job. Anything that can help a Mom take care of her family is a great thing, so it doesn’t hurt that the items are so fresh and pretty. Check it out.
Priority : We are in the market for bikes, and this kickstarter totally caught my eye. Not only is the bike totally innovative; no chain, puncture resistant tires, light weight, totally maintenance free. But it’s also 100% the style of bike I’ve been day-dreaming of, simple and timeless – plus the price tag looks right up my alley. Check it out.
*Like any/many kickstarters, if you back a certain amount you will be guaranteed to get an item – usually off the first run, which is pretty cool if you like the item enough to back it and you like to have things first. What do you think, love any of these products?
