We’re Moving to A New Shiny Happy Blog!

You heard it right – ecosumo did some upgrading to its blog so that we could organize content better, share content with more social media venues, and make things just a wee bit easier on us to manage.  So as of RIGHT NOW, we’re going to start posting our content at – dun, dun, dun! – www.ecosumoblog.com.

One awesome new part of www.ecosumoblog.com is that it is prepped (not active, but the foundation is there) to have a whole community profile system where you’ll be able to interact with other community members – share green tips, network with other eco-netizens, and even coordinate to meet up in the real world for grass roots efforts to do things such as plant trees, create a gardening commune, and a zillion other tree-huggy hippie love child save the planet stuff that we love!

We’ll have all the same categories and all the content from this blog is moved over there already so you can still research all our previous content.  This blog will be kept live for a few months while we get www.ecosumoblog.com indexed with the search engines.

And the People Said Let There Be More Sacks…And There Were.

You heard us – we have more reusable sacks for all you eco-conscious aficionados out there with a diehard penchant for looking sweet while you refuse to waste.  We’ve added quite a few new reusable bags to the line – each of which can be utilized for shopping of any sort, traveling, or just plain sported for an evening out with friends.

All these sax are lightweight, portable, and waterproof.  Each one holds the equivalent of two supermarket plastic bags, thanks to reinforced seams.  The Graphic Series Pouch is a great way of purchasing all 5 bags at once. The pouch is small enough to fit into a glove compartment or a medium to large handbag.

Check ’em out!

1. The Animal Planet Pouch: Lions and Tigers and Bears…well, dogs and wrens and butterflies is more like it.  And they’re exquisitely multi-colored and a holistic reminder of some other beasties that inhabit this planet we too often take for granted at their expense.  Get the 5 pack (equivalent to 10 plastic shopping bags BUT THESE ARE RESUABLE!! REUUUUUUUUUSSSSSSAAAAAAAAAABBBBBBBLEEE!!!)

2. Candy Bag: Sure, you can fill it with candy.  This retro unit would make Mary Tyler Moore smile and throw on a pillbox hat.  Rock out with the colors of royalty (purple and black) with some bold Mondrian style over your shoulder.

3. La Boheme: Take it to the opera, pal!  Dig on this sack inspired by a fusion of the romanticism of Bohemia and the ideals of the Art Nouveau movement.  This new style is pushing conventional boundaries, breathing new life into eco-friendly products with the focus on beautiful design and reusability; bringing art not only into everyday life but an eco-conscious life.

What a great TWIST!

We have a new member to the Ecosumo family of products – the TWIST line.  Twist is a focused line of products bent on helping you clean up everything from the walls to the floor to the dishes.  And we’re going to say this now – we never even thought that a sponge or dishtowel could look stylish…but these guys pulled it off.

Check out there Loofah Scrubby.  The Loofah Scrubby works on all your simple cleaning needs, but its made extra tough to handle the hard to clean pans after a cheesy dish or a burned casserole (not that you’re not a great cook…it just happens sometimes).  It’s got sponge on the inside, and super scrubby loofah on the outside.  It’s also all-natural and dye free.

Or get Naked while you clean with the Naked Sponge.  By Naked we mean without chemicals, colors, and any of the adulterated stuff found in those ugly old yellow and green sponges.   And there are 3 sizes of Naked-ness to have ready to combat your dirt.

And don’t neglect the Dish Dumpling.  Described as a “nugget of sponge power”, this agave-wrapped cutie-pie is dye-free and biodegradable.  Seriously, its so adorable that stains won’t fight back (puppy eyes just met their match.)

Check out all the new sponges and cleaning items at the ecosumo site.

And here’s little tid-bit – don’t throw away the packaging.  In an effort to decrease waste, Twist’s pacakging can be turned into bird-feeders by following the instructions on the inside.  Kudos to Twist for imaginative environmentalism!

Peace…Ecosumo

25oz’s to Freedom – The KOR ONE Hydration Vessel

Some people need more impetus to kick their disposable water bottle habit and get on the reusable water bottle kick.  So, since ecosumo is claiming the title of Reusable Water Bottle Heroes, we’d like to promote a few other attributes of the glorious reusable water bottle – specifically the KOR ONE Hydration Vessel – to compel you all to get your cape and cowl on to help defeat the Disposable Water Bottle Beast (and at over 60 million thrown away per year JUST IN AMERICA, yeah…it’s a Beast.)

1. 25 oz’s in one bottle – That’s 3 of your 8 needed glasses of water sitting right beside you or going with you as you ride your bike around town or hit the trails for a hike or…  You get the point.  You have mucho capacity in your grasp.

2. Style – Face it, we like to look good.  And for those of us who were born looking like me, you have to buy that.  So, I carry the KOR ONE Hydration Vessel so that its sleek design and sensuous color reflect on me as a stylish, debonair Urbanite.  …or, yeah, it just looks damn cool and won’t do a thing for my social life.

3. Smarts and Compassion – The truth is that when you’re rocking a reusable water bottle, your sending a message to everyone around you.  And that message is that you’re a thinker who cares about the health of your planet and your own body.

Get your KOR ONE Hydration Vessel today by clicking HERE or on the image below.  Peace…ecosumo

Better Living thru Non-Chemicals

To that DOW…  ecosumo now carries Better Life cleaning products.  All these cleaning products use agents free of petrochemicals and ethoxylates.  These green cleaners are extracted from plants and vegetation which means rapid biodegrad-ation.  These green cleaners exceed both U.S. and European biodegradability standards.   Ecosumo has cleaning products designed from natural sources to clean the gunk off your sinks, bathtub, windows, floors, countertops, and even your infant!  These cleaning products are:

  • Gluten free
  • Not tested on animals
  • 100% Plant Derived
  • No parabens, ethoxylates, SLS, or SLES

Check out the Even the Kitchen Sink cleaner, great for those tenacious messes in the kitchen and bathroom.  For the windows, dig on the I Can See Clearly WOW window cleaner (awesome on glass, plexiglass, auto-glass, plastics, chrome, light fixtures, and more).  Simply Floored will destroy stains on any floor – tile, stone, marble, laminate, linoleum, and wood.  And if you’ve got an infant, 2AM is perfect for the 3 P’s – puke, pee, and poop.

So, start using these safe cleaners that are free of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), sulfates, and other chemicals which are irritants to the skin and respiratory system.  And live better without chemicals.

Peace…Ecosumo.
