Go Green Readers are made with recycled materials
As quickly as winter has morphed into spring, Earth Day has come and gone. An estimated 1 billion people in more than 192 countries around the world celebrated this global conversation on how to have a more positive impact on the planet.
With so many of us moving towards greening our lifestyles, I thought it would be fun to look at some earth-friendly products.

I recently profiled an outstanding brand of eco-friendly, long-lasting kitchen cookware - 360 Cookware - and even posted some great vegan recipes. And lest you think I’m being paid to do yet another post on them, NOT.
But two updates here.

Espresso lovers know the pangs of missing their favorite hot beverage while they enjoy the great outdoors. Hiking, boating and RVing are rarely convenient to having an espresso machine around.

A diet complete with anti-inflammatory foods is important. Noted physicians Barry Sears, author of “The Zone Diet,” and Andrew Weil, author and Harvard-trained natural and preventive medicine physician, agree that an anti-inflammatory diet is ideal for overall good health. Such a diet can help reduce the risk of heart disease, ease arthritic joints, even lower blood pressure.
“Superfoods” — plant-based foods rich in antioxidants, amino acids, enzymes, nutrients, vitamins and phytonutrients — are key to this type of diet.
Navitas Naturals, a company that offers a variety of organic superfood products, recently introduced Goldenberry Powder.
To learn more about this highly nutritious and delicious superfood product, see http://bit.ly/Z9n6zU.

360 Cookware’s Vapor technology cooks evenly throughout for perfect results
Look in almost every kitchen and you’ll find at least one non-stick pan, often with a scratches on it. Because this cookware “wears out”, it needs replacing every few years. What if you could break this cycle and could use the same top quality cookware for years, without worrying about scratches that caused toxic chemicals leaching into your food?
This isn’t a fantasy. Americraft’s 360 Cookware could be the last cookware you’ll ever buy.

Doing business sustainably includes delivering quality products that are light on the environment. Many businesses have this as their guidepost for creating innovation.
Such is the case with ReFleece, a Massachusetts company started in 2012 by husband and wife team Sam Palmer and Jennifer Feller. After meeting and working for years at Patagonia with the company’s quality fleece products, they created the latest upcycling phenomena – producing stylish cases for iPads and e-readers from discarded fleece jackets.

Not all juice drinks are created equal. Many contain chemical additives and high sugar and calorie content. I recently discovered in my local supermarket a great healthy alternative called Sparkling Ice.
This combination of lightly carbonated mountain spring water and fruit juice offers refreshing great taste. Certified kosher, these delicious juice drinks contain antioxidants and natural flavors including green tea extract. They have no caffeine, no sodium and zero calories.
To learn more about this healthy juice line with its many delicious flavors, see http://bit.ly/13fI2Nn.

As more and more communities and countries pass a ban on single use plastic bags – over 50 so far in California alone – high-end small retailers find themselves placed in sometimes awkward positions. Charging top prices for luxury products such as fine jewelry, the thought of adding a 5 or 10 cent fee because a customer doesn’t have a reusable bag for their purchase seems ludicrous.
