Kula Cloth: Next Level Eco-Friendly Pee Cloths
A Kula Cloth™ is the first of its kind - an intentionally (and obsessively) designed reusable antimicrobial pee cloth!
In a wilderness setting (or heck, even at a porta potty!), it's very important to have good hygiene. Traditionally, we either pack in excess amounts of toilet paper and/or employ the 'shaking off' method (aka 'drip dry'). Neither of these are good options. A pee cloth is a way that we can stay comfortable AND have a positive impact on the environment at the same time. Made with advanced silver-infused, antimicrobial fabric and eco-friendly non-toxic materials (Bamboo Viscose, Cotton, Organic Cotton, Polyester). Say hi 🙋🏽 to @kulacloth.
ReCaps uses reclaimed fabrics that would have otherwise ended up in a landfill to craft unique and stylish hats for adults and kids.
Each style of the one-of-a-kind hats is designed from the ground up. Outdoor-inspired images are hand-carved into blocks and printed on recycled and reclaimed fabric. Recaps was born from the desire to create a totally unique product that took a material destined for the landfill, and giving it a new unique value. Say hi 🙋🏿♂️ to @recap.hats.
And how about one for the kiddo? Check out these absolutely adorable hats for little ones--Purple Mountains WeeCap - $23.
Mountain Mel’s inspires people to take better care of the planet through taking better care of themselves, naturally. Mel built her business with a foundation of sustainability and doing right for the planet! Say hi 🙋🏻 to @mtnmels.
You know you’ve said it before, “Where Is My Mind???”, as you spin in circles trying to remember what you're doing next. That’s where this powerful blend steps in. Where Is My Mind??? is loaded with brain stimulating herbs to enhance your memory, and help you stay on track when handling life's many responsibilities.
