Pocket Notebooks

These are my perfect pocket notebooks, filled dot-grids tuned to just the right opacity to keep me organized, but not distracted. They’re just the right size to fit in a back pocket, with the ability to fold them around to focus on a single page. They meet all my expectations for a sustainable paper product, and plant a tree with every sale, making them carbon-positive.

Bamboo Skateboards

Boardwalk Cruiser Deck

Well, we considered making a “Lunation Cruiser” using this deck. We still might, but for now, that’s all you really need to know about how we feel about it. It uses incredibly sustainable bamboo to make a skateboard deck that’s lighter and stronger than traditional maple. Out of all their decks, we chose this for its classic shape and smaller size. The Huntington Beach company plants a tree with every sale. (Psst, use our coupon code for $10 off: F0Z82A8K7H1U.)

Sunski Glasses

Sunski makes sustainable glasses that don’t compromise on price, longevity, or style. We love their very California aesthetic, with models that would fit Joshua Tree, Laguna Beach, or Haight+Ashbury. The frames are made of a recycled resin, with a lifetime warranty. They sell affordable lens replacements, so scratches will never ruin your whole pair.

Stasher Bag

This is a truly unbelievable product. On the surface, this just seems like a reusable alternative to plastic food storage bags. But because it’s made from sustainable, non-toxic, heat-resistant silicone, it’s good for so much more. Dishwasher safe. Microwaveable. Freezer-ready. Even though they don’t cost much, they’ll only get cheaper the more they replace plastic bags you would have bought. And maybe get around to trying sous vide.

Miir Camp Cup

This camp mug is a vital tool to make that morning coffee pot stretch through the day. It’s vacuum insulated, with a powered coated, textured finish. I usually regulate my coffee’s temp by adding and removing the lid, which means your drinking window is greatly expanded beyond a normal mug. While it’s not great for commuting, I prefer the traditional mug to a thermos when I’m at home, making this my daily driver.
