Nerds Are Cool

Nerds Are Cool

I remember back in the good old days of this blog I’d do a lot of eco-shopping entries. I’ve since been trying to shave down what I already have. I have always been a pack rat and love to buy stuff. If it wasn’t for the fact that each time I move I am more lazy than obsessed with hording stuff, I’d be one of those guys, you know on Clean Sweep or Cops.  See lazy sometimes is good. I donate stuff to the Salvation Army, or those clothes boxes sprinkled throughout NYC, or drag stuff to swap meets in Queens, or bring them to my job and leave them on a counter outside my office, eBay, etc… Someone, somewhere wants my stuff.

I do have a point to all this. I now find I need to do some shopping for a new backpack. I may document this journey further, but for now I just wanted to share some resources I am using to research said bag. By the way, for those interested, my perfect bag would be an eco, fair trade, non sweatshop, sustainable, long lasting, locally made, recycled, durable, solar energy source, super fresh, comfortable, user friendly, big when it needs to be back pack. I am sure I am missing other specs, but you get my point.

For company ratings on social and environmental issues, see Co-op America’s sweatshops.org.  The Fair Trade Federation also lists companies committed to “fair wages and good employment opportunities to economically disadvantaged artisans and farmers worldwide.”  If they meet these guidelines I have completed part one of this journey.

OK, let me get started, my backpack is almost in pieces.

I got these Contour Ceramic Massage Stones made by JimmyJane, from Babeland the other day. The set consists of the Contour I, a barbell-shaped stone, designed for deep, kneading massage (using either end), or for rolling over your back, arms or wherever else you so choose. :] The Contour M dome’s curved side allows broad strokes, while the four pressure points of the underside provide multi-point stimulation. They are made of double-fired porcelain, are bio-compatible, durable, and easy to clean. You can use them individually, or pair the Contour I and Contour M stones for different massage techniques. Warm them up to soothe, or cool them down to refresh. They’re smooth, have polished surfaces that glide over your skin, with or without using massage lotion.

I did use their Beyond Cooling lotion, which not only smells good, like cucumbers and something sweet, but it makes the massage feel like it is deeper than without. Keep in mind, I was completely satisfied pre-lotion, but it is nicer with it. Marine says it does not feel greasy, which she appreciates.

If you take care of them I think they may last forever. That is green. :]

I really like the minimalist look they have. The white is shiny and sleek. They warm against your skin..

Point is I really like them because they feel good.

All About Me

I start many things with good intentions, many, many things. This time I intend to stay focused. This time I will not leave behind what I started. This time it is larger and more important than my obsession with Martha Stewart, all design shows, and Teresa Witherspoon. :P This time it is about the greater good...this time I am serious.

Wanna cool, original, organic cotton, handmade, super fresh t-shirt? Yes you do...
