A favorite gift to give this holiday season is The Rocket Book Everlast notebook. This super functional and eco-friendly item is a reusable notepad that really is the gift that keeps on giving because it can be used again and again. The patented paper has a true “pen and paper” feel when writing, which is a must for those of us who hate writing on tablets. Their easy-to-use app makes it simple to quickly blast notes to a number of cloud services, and the app also uses handwriting recognition technology to make all handwritten notes searchable as if they were typed into a computer. If used with pens that are approved by the company, the notebook is fully erasable with just a little bit of water. And at a very attractive price point ($34 at the time of writing), it makes a great gift for the note-taking eco-maven in your life!
Stainless Steel Water Bottle
The Avana Ashbury stainless steel water bottle, not only does it come in stylish colors and designs, but its double-walled vacuum insulation feature works to actually keep liquids super cold for 24 hours and super hot for 12 hours. Through its patented FreeSip Spout design, the bottle also comes with an integrated straw, which means you can either sip or swig your liquid. Made from stain and odor-resistant food-grade stainless steel, this eco-friendly, reusable water bottle will stay free of rust and corrosion – and is BPA and phthalate-free. The best part? Every bottle you buy ($40) helps donate to water projects in developing countries around the world. Check it out here!
