Waste Free Lunch Accessories: Great Stocking Stuffers November 27, 2009

Filed under: Gifts under $25,High School Students,Home,School Supplies — junipertree @ 7:40 pm

My kids are getting new water bottles & thermoses in their Christmas stockings. I like to mix in the practical gifts & they often show me which of the stylish water bottles they like best in the store. 

Many in our community are trying to going waste free with school lunches: by using reusable sandwich & snack wraps instead of plastic ziplocks & using cloth napkins instead of paper. And some are also migrating away from plastic, so our store carries a HUGE selection of stainless steel water bottles & food containers. We carry the lines: Kids Konserve, Lunch Bots, Kleen Kanteens, Laptop lunch thermoses, Wrap-n-mats, & several different stainless water bottle lines. Many agree that for kindergarten & toddlers, Kleen Kanteen sippy cup tops seem to leak the least. And unlike aluminum water bottles (such as SIGG), all stainless steel water bottles can go in the dish washer.


Gifts of Peace November 16, 2009

Two gifts stood out to me in the store today. Amidst the rush of the holidays (and our own community’s race to Winter Fair!) it’s nice to see gentle reminders of peace this season. The first is one of my favorite ornaments in the store. It’s hand cast in lead free pewter. The ornament reads, “there is no way to peace. peace is the way. AJ Muste”. And the cast concrete wall hanging reads “Peace and Grace Be to this place” below the angel. Both items are U.S. made.
