Verve Culture | Handmade Hot Chocolate Jug

“I love the hot chocolate jug from Verve Culture. Paired with the molinillo whisk and hot chocolate discs (also from Verve Culture), it makes for a perfect evening drink. Growing up in a Mexican-American household, hot chocolate was a cherished part of my childhood and knowing that I can continue that tradition and share it with family and friends truly means the world to me. Plus, I love that it’s made with sustainable high-quality Mexican red clay (just like my abuela’s) that I can heat straight on the stove. What a great way to celebrate chilly fall and winter days!”

Cotopaxi | Tarak 20L Climbing Bag

“First off, Cotopaxi is an amazing brand, and if you don’t know much about them please check out our page! Second, I have never found a better day hike pack than this one. It’s light, it’s incredibly functional, it comes with a hip and chest strap, and it looks really cool. At least once or twice on any given hike, someone stops to compliment my bag. So, it’s not only a great pack but an awesome conversation piece on sustainably-made outdoor gear!”

– Damir, Ecommerce Product Manager + Business Analyst

Terra Thread | Organic Cotton Laptop Case

I love my new laptop case from Terra Thread. It’s important to keep our electronics safe – the longer they last, the more money we save and the less electronic waste we generate. This cute case is made from organic cotton which is sweet because I know it was made using way less water and chemicals than if it were made with traditional cotton. Choosing the color was the only tough part of this decision!

Plaine Products | Vegan Beauty Oil 2.5oz

“This is a perfect addition to any daily skincare routine, especially as it starts to get colder. My hands get so dry packing orders so I make sure to dab a small amount mid-way through my shift to moisturize without getting greasy. I also love that the smell is subtle with notes of earthiness and florals which makes it perfect for everyone!

– Brie, Sustainable Sourcing Manager
