Spork on the walk!

30 Jun

Spork by Light My FireWhen I leave for work, I bring my homemade congee with me in my Black+Blum bottle (it’s great with a magnetic spoon on the side) but when it’s in the dishwasher I have to use a Tupperware.
That’s when I bring my Spork (when a spoon gets married with a knife and gets a baby fork).
For the way in, I store it inside my empty Polar bottle.
But for the way back it’s dirty and I never know where to put it (I don’t want to hand wash it because I’m a bit lazy and also I don’t want to put my dishwasher out of work;-)

But this is all history now because I just found a Spork case!

The case can contain up to 2 Sporks.
It’s easy to transport thanks to its eyelet, I can hang it to my VahoWorks bag with a S-biner.
The case closes with a tight snap, so no worries to lose the Spork.

The Spork case is perfect for camping, barbecue or the office.

PS: the price is really good too, for 2 Sporks and the case I paid £5.50 ($9,36 or 6,80€).

Let’s bury the plate!

10 Feb

EcoSouLifeJust recently, I stumbled across EcoSouLife’s Biodegradable products in a local outdoor retailer in Melbourne.

This Australian brand has launched a full range of environmentally conscious tableware and lifestyle products that aim to replace harmful plastics and melamine’s which pollute the environment.
They will completely biodegrade once buried under the earth (I would not bury my bowl though, but it’s great to know that if we want we can do it).EcoSouLife

How is it possible ?
Those products are simply made with natural ingredients such as bamboo and cornstarch.

EcoSouLife

So what came from the earth can go straight back into the earth.

I bought two bowls! My bowl now is eco-friendly, dishwasher-safe, heat resistant and of course re-usable (don’t use it in the microwave though).

EcoSouLife targets the campers and eco-conscious buyers, like you and me.
I’m not a camper (I don’t want to fight with a bear for a corn flake) but why not try to buy and support Eco smart initiatives! So from now on, I will eat my ice cream, my cornflakes, my congee in an eco bowl!

Got a piranha in the pocket!

22 Sep

imageOften when I’m working outdoor, I need scissors, something to cut carton boxes open, open a FedEx plastic envelop, unpack products, … And in the middle of nowhere what’s left to you is your bite and nails … Maybe not!
I’ve been benching solutions for quite a time now and recently found the Piranha Alpine Knife by Trango.
It’s a small pocket knife made from surgical 440-C stainless.
The Piranha is small and can be the beat friend of your keyring.
The blade is dented and cuts really well (watch the fingers or no more piano lessons) but Trango thought about it and it’s advised to carry the Piranha on a regular carabiner and it won’t open itself.
When you are finished your work with the Piranha, you’ll be able to open bottle thanks to it’s bottles opener.

Specs
. Dimension (blade: 1″/26mm, Piranha closed: 2,4″/6cm)
. Weight: 2,7oz, 19mm
. Price: 19,95$
Now you can say small, light and efficient as a Piranha!

If you are a regular outdoor person this will greatly help you but you might need another blade for long heavy work as because of it’s small size it may be uncomfortable.

I also have the Curve by Gerber (which brings to the plate many different screw imagedrivers and a bottle opener), 9,99$

PS: don’t forget to check it in, as blades even tiny ones are not TSA-approved.
