Reusable water bottles have never been more important than they are now. But the biggest hassle is washing them and keeping them clean. The LARQ Bottle by LARQ is a total gamechanger. It’s a reusable bottle that has a self-cleaning feature! It utilizes a UV-C LED light to get rid of 99.9999% of germs form your water. Available in five colors, all you need to do is press the button on the top and watch the light purify your water.

LARQ was founded by a group of friends who believe clean water is a right, not a privilege. Together, they came used the power of technology to build a water bottle that works to slowly end the use of disposable plastic bottles. They donate a portion of their proceeds to 1% for the Planet.

As a self-proclaimed coffee addict, I took it as my duty to find a way to indulge my coffee addiction in way that doesn’t harm our planet. One (sometimes three!) disposable cups of coffee can really add up but Byta has helped me eliminate my use of disposable cups altogether! Their 16 oz cup is BPA free, toxin free, and vacuum sealed so there’s no sweating and it allows it to keep your coffee hot for a longer period of time. Most importantly, it fit most cup holders so you can enjoy your coffee during your commute to work!

Byta started out as a simple drawing- a drawing on a napkin! From there they sought out to eliminate disposable cups in order to save our planet. The company is a supporter of Ocean Conservancy, a nonprofit organization that is committed to saving our oceans. As of now, Byta has saved 14,500,000 cups from ending up in the ocean! Their mission is to save 500 BILLION! Let’s help them!

How wonderfully Smitten!

Spring is here and Summer is fast approaching which begs the question: Are you wearing your sunscreen? Many of you are very anti – sunscreen and for good reason. They can be filled with ingredients you can’t pronounce, they’re heavy, and can cause breakouts (no, thanks). That’s where REN steps in by launching their Clean Screen Mineral SPF 30. It’s vegan, cruelty-free, and doesn’t contain any silicone. Their sunscreen contains 22% zinc oxide, rice starch, and yellow passion fruit seed extract. And the best part is it’s certified clean beauty and doesn’t leave you looking chalky. It’s a daily sunscreen you want to reapply throughout your day. 

REN was founded to offer you clean products that are not only good for you but good for the environment as well. They’re adamant about using bio - actives in their products and they only use 100% recyclable packaging. Their bottles are made from recycled ocean plastic and they have partnered with Surfrider to clean up the world’s beaches and oceans. 

How Smitten!

Can you remember how many plastic bottles you’ve used in your lifetime? Me neither. With plastic pollution becoming a bigger threat to our environment, PathWater has stepped up to change that. Their aluminum bottle is not only reusable but its sustainable too. 

PathWater was founded to help you make the switch from single-use plastic. It’s estimated that by 2050, there will be more plastic than fish in the ocean. Due to this scary and sad reality, PathWater has worked tirelessly to beat those odds with their aluminum bottles. Their water is also locally sourced, having gone through a whopping seven step reverse osmosis filtration process. Better for you and better for the environment.

I put my whole heart into this fragrance, I hope it will inspire you as much as it has me!

When I say this little bottle of perfume is heavenly, I speak the truth.  Delectable citrus notes start off at the top, rich and creamy Madagascar Vanilla fills out the middle...ginger, vetiver and sage finish the scent. It's got a fetching, come-hither quality...nectarous and sexy. 

This bewitching fragrance is notablySmitten's first signature scent - ten percent of each bottle will go toward purchasing Wello Waterwheels for regions of the country that are faced with dire challenges accessing water. 

notablySmitten loves Wello and wants you to know more about this important company here.

Gracious and Smitten.

kick a** socks - Conscious Step

These socks walk the walk they talk! Conscious Step helps “give an ordinary purchase an extraordinary purpose.”

Can socks change the world…why yes, they can! Conscious Step is surely going  to make a difference “one pair of socks at a time” – 50 percent of all profits go toward 3 partnering charities. Currently Conscious Step offers three exclusive sock designs, each reflective of the cause it supports:

One pair funds Action Against Hunger that provides three therapeutic food packages for malnourished children living in refugee camps in Kenya, South Sudan and the Democratic Republic of Congo.

The second pair funds Trees for the Future, which plants 30 trees in rural Ghana and provides an education in agroforestry to women and children, giving them the ability to replenish degraded soils and generate sustainable sources of food and fuel.

The third pair funds Engineers Without Borders that sends Australian engineers to Nepal to build clean water sources in schools so that young girls can have the same education opportunities as boys.

The wonderful entrepreneurs behind Conscious Step are Dr. Hassan Ahmad and Adam Long from Sydney, and Prashant Mehta from New York City. All three, firm believers in “the more profitable you are, the greater your impact”…and “knowing that my sock drawer planted a forest in Ghana”, is more motivating than donating $5 to a charity and having no idea how it will be used or what difference it will make,” says Dr. Ahmad.

These socks are made from 200-needle count, organic, fair trade cotton and are sweat resistant. Each style is embroidered with it’s own unique distinguishable symbol…and did I say they kick a**!

Smitten with these socks.
