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.

byta.jpg

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!

I’m not the best at running but I still want to look good as I attempt to do it.  The Rover Hoodie from Janji is both stylish and functional. Featuring moisture-wicking fabric, the hoodie has a ponytail slot to keep your hoodie place when you run! Finally, the running gods have heard our cries.

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.

Flex watches are a product of two great things: life-long friendship and a strong desire to contribute to a larger cause.  Founded by childhood friends, Travis Lubinsky and Trevor Jones, Flex donates 10% of every sale to a corresponding cause, meaning you can choose the cause (and color scheme) you are most passionate about.  

Each Flex watch supports a particular cause, such as breast cancer or clean water.  In turn, a donation is made to a partnering organization, like Keep A Breast or The Thirst Project.  We love the easy-to-read watch face and a bright pop of uniform color! These watches are water resistant, made of high-grade silicone, and have interchangeable wristbands so styles can be mix-and-matched easily.  If that’s not enough to love, they also offer a 2-year warranty and free shipping - making this a memorable gift for any do-gooder in your life.  

On time - so Smitten!

organic bangles for Haiti - xoxo, Simbi

Simbi bracelets have so many amazing things going for them - they are handmade, 100% organic, vegan, biodegradable, and glazed with a non-toxic finish.  The Acai bracelet is akin to a string of superfood Acai berries wrapped around your wrist, and we think that is just the yummiest.

Every step of the Simbi creative, manufacturing, and shipping processes is done in Haiti.  Instead of importing portions of the organization, Simbi creates jobs for locals as a concerted effort to elevate the global offerings of Haiti as well as the everyday lives of Haitian people.  Simbi’s mission statement is three-part: create jobs, purify water, save lives.  To that end, each Simbi bracelet creates 15 sustainable jobs for natives of Haiti and supports efforts to implement clean water systems. You can donate directly to Aqua Haiti here. With beautiful jewelry like the Acai bracelet, it’s easy to support this cause.

Inspired and Smitten.

hands and hearts...and suds - Hand in Hand soap

It is so wonderfully simple: you buy a bar of this luxurious soap, and provide soap and clean water to children in the developing world.

In 2011, Bill Glaab and Courtney Apple read a substantial article that stated 5 million children die each year from water related illnesses. After much research, they learned that 45% of these deaths could have been prevented with simple hand washing alone. They decided to create a utilitarian product... that could save lives as well. Thus, Hand in Hand was born!

You can buy directly from their site. Or, you can find Hand in Hand...at Target!

It is your purchases that keep these programs running & we thank you for your continued support!

notable sun wear - Solve sunglasses

solvesunglasses.jpg

Solve is a for-profit sunglasses company that contributes to solving one of the biggest threats for developing societies - a lack of clean water.  For each pair of sunglasses that are purchased, Solve will provide clean water for an entire life. 

Solve was founded by Jeb Geesey and Justin Kroboth, two fire-fighters from Charleston SC, and works exclusively with Water Missions International to provide clean water for life.  Solve is able to put $10 of each sunglasses sale - the estimated cost per person of Water Missions’ custom water, sanitation and hygiene efforts - and promises that the clean water supply will continue for life.  

Like our friends behind the Wello Water Wheel, Solve knows that water gathering in developing countries is a time consuming, often dangerous, back-breaking practice (usually left to women and children) that very directly perpetuates the poverty cycle.  With the help of Solve and Water Missions International, a clean water supply becomes a reliable and easily accessible part of every community.

So Smitten.

the perfect gift = Wello WaterWheel

Cynthia Koenig has spent the last two years creating an extremely innovative solution to a very real problem in Rajathsan: the gathering and storing of clean water.  Simply put, water collecting eats up a large portion of the day for many women and is very taxing on the body.  The Wello WaterWheel is a deceptively simple tool that allows up to 45liters of water at a time to be gathered and safely stored by simply pushing the wheel like a cart. 

Wello claims that 1 in 7 people globally lives more than a kilometer from the nearest water source, and most women carry 20 liters on average (weighing around 45lbs) at a time.  It is also estimated that 75% of the girls between the ages of 15-17 in Rajathsan drop out of school to help with the household.  Water gathering is a slow, tiring process and almost exclusively a woman’s job.  

With the WaterWheel, women are able to dramatically improve their daily life with an estimated 35 hours a week saved by no longer gathering water in a traditional method!  They have time to work a job and produce income, have more water each day to keep their home clean, are able to properly hydrate their families, and can create better irrigation for their crops.  All of these factors are key elements to breaking the poverty cycle.

Interested in donating.

We’re so excited to see Wello reach their full potential as they begin distributing WaterWheels this year.  

Inspired and Smitten.
