5 Things to Know About Sustainable Glassware

Neutrall, a company making sustainable glassware, helps uncover the beauty behind the glass

Most people have no idea about their glassware beyond whether or not they like the pattern or look of them. They don’t know what it took to get to their kitchen, the materials that were used, or whether or not they are environmentally friendly. One company that specializes in providing sustainable glassware wants to change all that, leading people to become more aware of what they are purchasing, and why it matters in the first place.

When people learn about glass and sustainability efforts, then they really do care about them, explains Sarah Scott Mitchell, co-owner of Neutrall, a company specializing in sustainable glassware. It’s important that people have access to the information so they can make informed choices when it comes to purchasing items for their homes. We want to help people make healthier and sustainable choices for their families, and we are doing it one glass at a time.

The largest exporter of glassware in the world is China. They exported $18 billion worth of glassware in 2020, with much of it landing on store shelves in the United States. While people don’t give it much thought when they are looking at the product, those glasses traveled 11,000 miles to reach the store shelf. Add that to the issue that we don’t know all the regulations in place when creating the glass. Some glassware can be potentially dangerous, having high levels of lead and cadmium that can enter our bodies when drinking out of them. 

Those looking for a more sustainable and safer option should consider sustainable glassware that is made in the USA. Companies in the USA are kept to higher safety standards, and the product is already much more environmentally friendly because it’s made closer to home. Here are 5 things to know about sustainable glassware from Neutrall.

Upcycling. Rather than starting with fresh raw materials, sustainable glass is made through an upcycling process. This is when previously used glass is taken and reused to make something better, the sustainable glassware. 

Packaging. Sustainable glassware comes in eco-friendly packaging, so there is zero waste. The packaging is made from recycled materials and can be recycled.

Carbon offsets. All glassware purchased through Neutrall provides the opportunity to purchase carbon offsets, which guarantees that there is no carbon footprint. 

Durability. The glasses are strong and durable, which ensures that they will last a long time. Sustainable glasses are something that will not need to be replaced for a long time, thus reducing resource usage.

Commitment. Sustainable glassware helps people keep the commitment they made to being environmentally friendly. It provides a simple way to obtain the items needed, but not create waste in obtaining them.

Sustainable glassware is a step in the right direction for anyone who wants to be the change in the world, added co-founder Ernesto Humpierres. It makes people feel good to know they are doing good, and we are happy to know we help make that possible. We have the most eco-friendly glassware that money can buy.

Neutrall was created by Mitchell and Humpierres, who live in Austin, Texas, with their young twins. She has devoted her career to conservation, and currently serves as the director for Cook’s Branch Conservancy, where she helps to restore natural ecosystems. Humpierres, who has a career background working in a variety of business settings, also prioritizes conservation and sustainability. Together they wanted to set the example of how conservation and sustainability are compatible with business models. Thus, Neutrall was born.

All Neutrall glassware is made in the USA, upcycled, sustainable, and is shipped in eco-friendly packaging. The first product launched by Neutrall is a set of two upcycled 8-ounce glass cups that are shipped in sustainable packaging. The sturdy and compact glasses are great for morning juices and drinks, and great for small hands. They are great for families, and to give as gifts for weddings and house warmings.

Oscar Stone LTD

By: Emily Bunn x Vaughn Lowery

Oscar Stone LTD is a family-owned jewelry firm based in the Bronx, New York. Oscar Stone sells timeless jewelry, including customizable earrings, watches, bracelets, pendants, chains, and mouth grillz, which are all created from the beginning to the end internally. Oscar’s most popular article, baguette diamond earrings, dazzle his clients with their blinding beauty. Oscar Stone recognizes the value of using durable diamonds and jewelry from the Bronx community.

While lockdown created a lull for other companies, Oscar used the downtime to bolster his burgeoning business. His reach on social media via Instagram featured Oscar to many celebrity customers, including Jojo Simmons, Young Dirty Bastard, and Kid Capri, among others. Oscar Stone‘s jewelry exudes a true dedication to his craft, which is why his extensive list of clients keeps expanding.

The last authentic district of New York, the Bronx, houses the next largest jeweler in New York. Oscar Stone LTD stands apart from other jewelers such as Jacob the Jeweler, Greenwich Street Jewelers, and Martin Busch Jewelers because of its innovative approach to bespoke jewelry and sustainable practices and inspirational dedication to their craft. Oscar’s relentless pursuit of fine diamonds and customer satisfaction during the pandemic has allowed his business to flourish more than ever. Looking to the future, Oscar aims to continue creating custom designs for his customers and grow his business to become a familiar name.

We talked with Oscar about his background in gemology, his favorite custom orders, and his business expansion plans in the Bronx.

How did you get started in making jewelry and performing gemology for Oscar Stone?

I’m a G.I.A. accredited gemologist. Basically, growing up my whole life, [my] family– aunts, uncles, cousins– we all just did jewelry. So getting the jewelry was the easy part. It’s a family trade, really; it’s one of our best-kept secrets.

How did you build your clientele when you began in the jewelry business?

I knew about jewelry; gold wasn’t something crazy new to me. It’s like all your aunts and uncles own auto repair shops–you fix a couple of the tires, do a couple of oil changes, and you just kind of figure it out by yourself. When I had my own spot, building my clientele did really start from scratch. I didn’t have any celebrities or influencers, so I just had to open up shop and see what I could do. Before I did that, I actually did go to GIA (Gemological Institute of America) diamond school. I knew that GIA offered courses for this type of stuff. I spent a couple of months educating myself–[even] just [concerning] diamonds; there’s so many things about diamonds.

Once I finished the education, I decided to really bring in some clients. I was in business for about three years, and then I just started going heavy on social media. Once I started publishing my work on social media, the followers started coming. You know, not[hing] crazy yet, but I started getting a couple thousand [followers]. That’s when the business started taking off. I started hiring friends of mine and a lot of people, [and] my staff grew from four or five people to like twenty-five people. Business exploded when I started getting people who were verified on Instagram and had 300–400,000 followers. Once I started getting those clientele, the ball really started rolling. And that’s where we are now, about a year later.

What celebrities/notable clients have you done jewelry work for?

I would say the biggest guy that I’ve done work for would be, Jojo Simmons from RUN–D.M.C. I’ve done work for Young Dirty Bastard, who is the son of Old Dirty Bastard from the Wu Tang Clan. [Regarding] household names, I’ve done guys as big as Tonio Skits and Darius D.K. [Also,] I’ve done work for [Kid] Capri.

How do you source the best diamonds/gems for jeweling?

I don’t always get the same diamonds from the same supplier. The reason is, once you start working with somebody for diamonds and you guys get comfortable, then they start sending you lesser quality parcels. A parcel is basically like a bag of diamonds, [which come in] a lot of different sizes. They should all be the same clarity, and you sort through them to see that the quality is consistent.

I can buy 50 carats of diamonds this month [or] this week, and then I’ll run out by making all the jewelry. And so, I need to reorder. If the quality starts to become inconsistent with the price that I’m paying, I’ll switch over to another diamond supplier. Most of my diamond suppliers are in India, so I’ve had to fly out there a few times and look at some parcels, look at some factories, and see how they’re all doing it.

[Or, for example,] if I have to build a watch and do it three weeks, and [clients] don’t give me enough time, I have to get [diamonds] local[ly].

What is your favorite jewelry design you sell?

My favorite designs [are] always the custom pieces I make. I always love doing custom work, I just love like how intricate they are. I just did a piece for a client of mine–it’s this huge custom piece that spins when you spin it. I’ve had the most fun working on it, that’s my favorite piece right now. I’m working on another one that might top it, but we’re gonna keep it under wraps for now.

What is your jewelry specialty?

My signature I would say is the baguette earrings, that’s what most people know me for. Out of all my followers, I would say 20,000 of them might have been from the baguette earrings.

I do really, really good with the baguette diamond earrings that are on my website. I could sell as many as 20 pairs a day. A lot of people [who] are from out of state buy that. A lot of people [come] in store as well. The baguette diamonds are just such a popular thing for me right now. I have to make hundreds and hundreds of pairs just to keep up with demand.

What is the most popular order you receive from clients?

The baguette diamonds are just like something you really don’t see out of New York. And so, people love them. It’s also my bread and butter…It’s gonna go, it’s gonna sell, and sell classic.

What’s next for you?

I’m going to be moving to another location on the Grand Concourse in the Bronx–I’m true to the Bronx, I don’t wanna leave the Bronx. So, I’m moving to a store that is down the block from me. It has three times the retail space, and a basement attached to it. I’ll be able to really put a factory down there. As long as the people keep loving my jewelry and what I do, I’m going to keep delivering the best I can. To do that, and to give the best prices, you need to do things in-house. I’m going to have a 1500 sq ft basement where I’ll be able to put ten diamond setters down there and set diamonds all day. The second floor will be an office to do all the online [work]. On the floor-level will be retail and the showroom, so people who want to see things in-person, I can show them right there. That is my short-term goal in the next one or two years. Long term, I want to be a household name, but one thing at a time.

The Iconic Men’s Shoes You Will Want to Own Today

When it comes to shoes, there are some brands that have stood the test of time. Timberland, Nike, Converse and adidas all have iconic kicks that have been gracing our feet for decades.

Here, we give you a run down of the most iconic men’s shoes of all time, which are all still available today. 

The Timberland Boots

The first Timberland boots were released in 1973, and they are still a bestseller today. As a boot fit for both work and play, it is the versatility of the Timberland that has kept them in the spotlight. 

They are soft and made of quality materials. With a waterproof leather upper and lug rubber outsole, Timberland boots are not only stylish, but they’re also comfortable — and something every man should have in his collection. These boots do come in a few different colors, but the tan hue is at the top of our list. While Timberlands have always been iconic, hip hop artists such as Kanye West have taken them to the next level of cool. 

The Nike Air Max Sneakers

When you own a pair of Nike Air Max kicks, they will be so much more than a typical pair of sneakers. First released in 1987, these retro shoes come in just about any color scheme you can imagine. Known for the cushioned base and that “window to the sole,” the brand wanted to show fans the air that was hidden inside. The idea to pump up the sole with air originally came from Frank Rudy, an aeronautical engineer who had experience with NASA. 

Each season we see small changes to the Nike Air Max range, but they still have that ’80s bounce we all know and love.

The Converse Chuck Taylors

Another shoe that is rich in history is the Converse Chuck Taylor All-Stars. These basketball babes were first invented in 1917, but Chuck Taylor wasn’t completely satisfied with the design. 

He asked for more support in 1922, and they have been an icon ever since. Converse shoes come in different cuts, but we really can’t go past the high tops. They can be worn with any outfit, and really do scream retro fashion. Whether it is black, white or red, it’s that star that will keep these legends popular well into the future.

The Adidas Originals Superstar

Another shoe that we have been coveting for 50 years is the Adidas Originals Superstar. Its rubber shell toe cap and flexibility made it a direct competitor against Converse in the basketball market. 

Adidas is a pop culture favorite, and while the Superstar may have started as a basketball shoe, it now has its place on the street. The 80s’ hip hop scene helped propel this shoe into the spotlight, as Run DMC proudly wore the three stripes

An Iconic Shoe Is a Must-Have

Shoes aren’t just for working and running, they can be the finishing touch to your look. Some shoes are made to be worn for life, and a pair of Timberlands, Nike Airs, Adidas Originals or Converse Chuck Taylor’s have long-term appeal.

No matter what the season or the occasion, these iconic shoes will be there to make a statement. Plus, they are all made with comfort and support in mind.

Choosing the Right Roof for Your Home – A User Guide

If you have recently looked at your roof and decided that it’s time for a change, you might be considering the option of having a new roof installed or carrying out a major repair or renovation. Since home roofs typically go decades without being replaced, homeowners can feel a bit clueless about the modern roofing options that are available because they haven’t shopped for a roof in so long, if ever. If that sounds like your current predicament, you’ve stumbled onto the right guide because below we’ll be discussing all of the fundamentals that you’ll need to know in order to start heading in the right direction with your roof comparison.

Choose the Right Roofing Company

Before you start researching the various types of roofs you can buy, it’s best to go ahead and decide who you’re going to hire to remove your old roof and install the new one. Try to opt for a contractor or company that has been doing business for a while and has plenty of positive reviews. You never want to trust your roofing installation in the hands of a questionable or newly established brand because there could be serious financial and liability-related consequences if anything goes wrong. 

According to Semper Solaris, a leading roofing company in Southern California, the quality of the installation will directly determine how long the roof will last and whether it will need premature maintenance in the near future. They’ve been working in the roofing industry for more than two decades and have performed countless roofing, HVAC, and solar installs, so their opinion that installation quality is just as important roof selection is a valid one that’s worthy of consideration. 

Consider All Costs & Risks Involved 

The roofing installer that you choose will have one of the biggest impacts on the overall cost of your new roof. Dealing with a reputable company will ensure that you’ll be given a fairly accurate quote estimate based on the size of your home, the total square footage of the roof space that needs to be installed, and the kind of roofing materials you select. 

Comparing multiple quotes is an advisable step, but don’t let the price be your only criteria. Selecting a roofing installer or material based solely on the fact that they have the lowest price is a surefire way to have a low-quality roof installed on your home.

It’s also important to confirm that your chosen roofing installer is adequately licensed and insured. If they’re not, and an injury or property damage occurs during the project, you could be held liable for the resulting expenses. This is generally a non-issue because being licensed and insured is a standard industry prerequisite, but it’s still worthwhile to double-check, particularly if you’re dealing with a newly established team of laborers. 

Select the Right Materials

While you may like the look of certain materials, it’s possible that they might not be ideal for or compatible with your home architecturally. Generally, lightweight materials are more universally applicable, whereas heavier roofing types like slate or tiles represent a significant weight burden on the structure of your home. In fact, a slate roof can weigh anywhere from 800 to 1,500 pounds. 

Take the time to learn the pros and cons of each material that you’re comparing. This is yet another reason why you should only deal with a reputable roofing installer, as you can be sure that they know what they’re doing and aren’t going to install incompatible materials on your roof. In fact, they should be able to help you decide which materials would be best suited for your roof based on its shape, size, slope, and the design style of the house below it. 

Thoroughly reviewing the defining features of each material option will ensure that you don’t regret your selection later on. Likewise, it could help you discover futuristic new roofing materials such as solar roofs and extended-life asphalt shingles. 

Compare the Durability & Maintenance Requirements of Different Shingle Types

Nobody can tell you what kind of roof shingle looks the best in your mind, but shingles do vary in their known durability and maintenance requirements, so those are the objective attributes that you can compare based on research. The two most popular kinds of roof shingles on the market are asphalt and metal. Other common material types include concrete, coal & tar, clay, and aluminum. In fact, there are at least 19 different kinds of roofing shingles that you can take into consideration during your comparison. 

The 5 most durable kinds of roofing materials are steel, aluminum, clay, slate, and 30-year asphalt. If you’re after the sweet spot between price and durability, your comparison should probably be between aluminum and asphalt. Concrete and slate are more durable, but like steel, they’re also very heavy, so those materials should only be used on larger homes that have strong supporting structures. 

While a reputable roofing contractor will have a designated structural engineer that they can consult with, if you’re spearheading the project yourself, then that’s definitely a consultation that you’d want to schedule. Installing a structurally unsafe roof is one of the costliest and most dangerous mistakes a homeowner can make, as it could lead to significant property damage or injury and leave you with a pile of burdensome liabilities. 

Opt for a Roofing Style That Complements Your Home’s Design

Finally, it’s important to base your roof selection on the existing design theme of your home in order to present the need for additional renovations and upgrades. Many homeowners will opt to paint the exterior of their home after a roofing project just to take care of any minor blemishes and add a fresh look to accompany the new roof. Still, beyond painting, you don’t want to feel obligated to change the entire architectural style of your home just to match your roof. 

You can use a roofing software to calculate the exact measurements and graphically compare roof styles against a backdrop photo of your home. That way, you can drag and drop design styles until you see one that looks like it would match your home. Once you have a style in mind and you know your roof measurements, you can contact local roofing companies to start comparing detailed quotes. 

Consult with Roofing Experts Before Making Your Decision

It’s important to note that no internet guide can substitute the services of a roofing professional. The advice given in this guide is meant to steer you in the right direction, but your actual decision will come down to the services that are available in your area. 

As a good rule of thumb, it’s wise to speak with 2-3 roofing companies in your area before you decide who to go with, as you want to give them a chance to compete for your business, and you also want to gather as much advice as you can in the initial planning stage. 

Finally, before you initiate a consultation, it would be wise to write down a list of questions that you’re going to ask. That way, you’ll get the most possible value out of the free consultation period that many roofing companies offer, as opposed to aimlessly wandering through the conversation with no particular goal in mind. 

7 Tips to Increase Effectiveness of Your Workout

Workouts can do a lot more than just improve your physical fitness, it builds your confidence, keeps stress and anxiety at bay, extends life expectancy and keeps you happy. If you spend hours at the gym for same reasons but are not satisfied with the result, then you have to bring in a few changes. Otherwise sooner or later you are bound to give up. Few practices can increase the effectiveness of your workout and make it a fun activity. Take notes, put your shoes on and get started.

  1. Always Warm Up First

Never ever skip warm up sessions. If you think just doing heavy workout is enough to achieve physical fitness, then you are wrong. When you do warm up sets, you are conditioning your body for all the intense activities that are to follow. Warming up increases your speed and endurance, gives you flexibility and is very crucial to prevent injuries, which are very common during gym sessions.

  1. Short and Intense Workout

Spending three hours in the gym would not yield result if all you do is few minutes of cycling, take half an hour break, then a few crunches and a juice break. When working out, focus on quality, not quantity. Thirty to forty minutes of intense workout is enough for the day. But make sure in that time you are doing everything from push-ups to squats to crunches to weightlifting. Time is not an excuse now.

  1. Supplements

Even after a proper diet, your workout sessions can make you feel drained for the rest of the day. And that’s where supplements come in. Supplements like multivitamins, whey protein powder, creatine, and even caffeine is emerging as an effective supplement for workout. If you’re into taste then checkout best tasting protein powders 2019.

  1. Golden Rule – Proper Diet

It has been stressed enough that a balanced diet is the key to living healthy and longer. All the workout would be of no use if you end up munching on burgers, pizzas, donuts and sipping coke every day. Your body needs fuel to keep up with your energy requirements during and after workouts. Design and follow a balanced diet and take a good intake of protein and carbs. Drink water regularly and switch from coke to natural juice.

  1. Workout Partner

If going to the gym seems like an ordeal to you and you end up skipping gym days too often then get a workout partner. It can be your better half, any friend, family member or even a colleague. When you have a companion to accompany you, train with you, talk about the common topic and share progress with, you are most likely to stay motivated for longer duration ensuring continuity.

  1. Let the Music Play

Many researches show that music enhances your durability during workout sessions. High beat motivating music gives you an adrenaline rush and gives you mental strength to do that one more set. It also motivates you and distracts your mind from recognizing body pain from exertion. Design your own playlist of songs that activates your mind and body and makes you want to move. You’ll see the difference.

  1. Keep Track

How will you progress if you don’t remember the last milestone that you achieved? If you want to do better than yesterday, then it’s important to know what exactly you did yesterday so start keeping track of your workout sessions from the beginning. Note down the days, session time, break time and all the numbers. This way you can actually see if you made any progress or not. If not, time to increase those numbers.

If you’re into exercising and working out, then you are already in the right direction my friend. You choose to live better every day when you choose to work out every day so keep the spirit high and earn your good health.
