The Perfect Plant Project for Travelers

September 7th, 2009 by Jordan


Okay, so this wasn’t my idea.  It was taken from  However, outside from just being a fun project, I thought travelers would appreciate a post on Terrariums.  A Terrarium is a simple self contained eco-system that you create and just let sit….no watering long lasting if done properly.  So you can be on the road, country-hopping, and still have plants that are watering themselves back home that will not be dead upon your return.  That’s what makes them so perfect for travelers.

Inspired by the post from Design Sponge, I set out to make my own.  I’ve attached more pictures after the jump to sort of show you the tools and nature elements you might want to use.  Originally, I was thinking there was no way these are going to work, but after just 4 hours, the moisture is still forming on the inside, so I have hope!

Eco + Motivation = Ecovation

May 7th, 2009 by Jordan


Sometimes I make up words….not for fun, just because I’m a half degree lazy and want to save oyxgen. I’ve been thinking about the whole “eco-green-save the planet-renew-reuse” lifestyle more recently, and how that has affected my life. You should know I dislike corporations who use the green theme to sell products, and I’m far from a tree hugger. But the more I think about it, I have become environmentally conscious…which happened unconsciously. I use to have a problem getting out of a hot shower because I enjoyed it so much…spending way too much time under the jets. But now, I think about saving energy and it motivates me to get out of the shower quicker. Which is what I wanted to do in the first place. Hence…Ecovation. Also, a light bulb went out in my room and where normally I would wait for the other one to burn out, I was ecovated to go out and get the new energy saver style just to see how long it will last.

Bottom line…as much as I have bashed the “wanna-be-green” corporations, I have become somewhat green myself. (author note:  please don’t use or spread the word “ecovation” it is a dumb  word and I really don’t want it to catch on)

Flip & Tumble Bag is a Go For Travel

April 13th, 2009 by Jordan


From comes the 24/7 reusable eco bag.  It’s developed for groceries as a way to carry a big bag in a very small space, then transform it into a shopping bag to not waste plastic bags. I think this bag has very cool travel potential as well.  Pack it up and fit it into a shoe or some tight space, then when travelling, it can be used as a laundry bag, grocery bag, day bag, or just about anything.  I would encourage you to check out their site and watch the video of this being folded up…sort of like a sock.

Jewelry From Afghanistan

September 25th, 2008 by Jordan

Finally, something positive I’ve found that relates to Afghanistan.  These fluorite bracelets are made by women in Afghanistan, they help local economy, help fair labor practices, and “emphasizes humane animal practices”…you know all that eco goodness you wanted.  And their packaging is eco friendly as well.  I’m just excited to find something cool about Afghanistan instead of hearing about terrorism.  You can check them out at  For only $19.95, that seems pretty good.
