Time Out Chicago <3s our I'm Not A Paper Towel + 20% off reuseit!

296.shopping.apples.comp Imagine our surprise when we picked up our favorite local magazine, Time Out Chicago and found our I'm Not A Paper Towel set featured in their Apple Picking Party shopping guide!

A blend of organic cotton and hemp, this set of four mapkins looks great on the dinner table (as you can see) but also makes the perfect replacement for paper napkins in your waste-free lunch.

Soft and durable, we use them for everything - as a hankie, in place of wet wipes, as a hand towel - you name it.

Now through Monday you can take 20% off all of our reuseit products - including these napkins - check out the details here!

Save 10% on great Halloween (& beyond) bags from Freak-O-Bags

KAM_120_Hero When we were kids, most of our moms sent us trick-or-treating with a pillow case or a plastic bag from the grocery store. At least the pillowcase was reusable, but it hardly went with our costumes.

Kids these days are lucky - there are cool companies like Kamibashi making fun reusable bags perfect for trick-or-treating and beyond. Take these Frankenstein's monster & mummy bags for example - from out of these one-of-a-kind, handmade monster pouches unrolls a full-size reusable bag that will last for years.

They'll compliment any Halloween costume, and once the sugar rush is over, you've got yourself a reusable bag to serve any purpose- groceries, books, you name it. Plus, they come with a small clip so they double as a key chain or decoration for backpacks.

This week, you can save 10% on the Frankenstein or Mummy Freak-O-Bag when you enter HALLOWEEN at check out.  This offer will expire 10.24.10 or while supplies last so act quickly!

Scratched, dented and proud - why we love our beat up bottles

Finalbottle We first brought the bottled water issue to national attention in 2003 - waking people up to the mindless over-consumption of “use & toss” water bottles while promoting the wisdom of high-quality reusables as an important part of the solution. In the years since, we've put our own reusable bottles through the ringer - their scratched paint and dented bodies a testament to the years of use each one has stood up to.

Scraped paint from our bike racks, dents and dings from crashing around inside our backpacks, faded stickers and even chewed up caps. They aren't always pretty, but they've replaced thousands of disposable plastic water bottles in their lifetimes, and they'll be around to replace thousands more.

From safe plastic to aluminum to stainless steel bottles, reusable bottles help to reduce wasteful consumption of disposable beverage bottles. They save us  money while saving precious natural resources by cutting down on the trillions of cans and bottles trashed each year.

15% Off Our Entire Water Bottle Selection

It's time to kick the bottled water habit - or help someone you know say no to disposable beverage bottles. We're celebrating the launch of our new site by offering 15% off all water bottles (even sale bottles) when you enter the code BOTTLES15 at check out. Act fast, quantities are limited on already discounted water bottles, and the coupon expires 10.17.10, midnight CST.
