Snazzy Socks for a Swell Cause

richer poorer world wildlife fun socks
Socks and the ocean rarely mix well, but Richer Poorer Inc. has changed that. They’ve partnered up with the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) to help conservation efforts while keeping your feet stylish.

Richer Poorer was founded six years ago by Iva Pawling and Tim Morse who felt the lowly old sock deserved to be representative of your style and personality. They make quality socks with unusual, fun, bold, nostalgic patterns, many inspired by unusual places like thrift stores or photos from a vacation album. Think modernized vintage. They even have a subscription service so that your feet never suffer the fate of worn, boring socks. Larger brands have noticed; Richer Poorer has partnered up with companies like J. Crew, Baggu, and Poketo, among others.

Through a mutual friend, the company joined forces with the WWF to create some very special socks. There are a couple of limited edition styles to chose from and at $29.95 for a two-pack, you might want to purchase each set. After all, 100% of the net proceeds are going to the WWF. The oceanic theme has two patterns per pair: one has the animal that is endangered (or damn close to being endangered) and the other foot shows that creature’s natural habitat. It’s a lot of information conveyed on two feet. You’ve got the Whale Shark and its deep ocean map set, the Yellowfin Tuna and ocean sunset pair, and lastly the turtle and coral reef combo. While it’s fairly depressing that these majestic creatures are in trouble, the socks that are helping them are boldly colored and are sure to generate conversations. Mix and match them or wear habitat socks together and animal socks together– you’ve got options for proudly wearing your ecological concern.

But helping out a worthy cause isn’t a new concept for the California-based company: they have a habit of giving back. This Father’s Day they donated $5 of every order of a 5-pack of socks to the men’s health organization, Movember Foundation.

Thanks to Richer Poorer, you’re going to look damn good while helping some of the ocean’s most vulnerable creatures.

If you know anything about Amazon (and let's be honest, who doesn't), you probably know it as one of the biggest retailers in the world. As that retail business continues to grow, though, Amazon has also gotten into the streaming game in a major way. There are lots of movies on Amazon Prime movies as well as plenty of shows, but this list is focusing on the streaming films that have been produced by Amazon as a studio. Amazon clearly wants to be a dominant player in Hollywood, in addition to the dominance it already has in the world of retail, and based on this list, it's well on its way.

Because Amazon is such a new studio, all of the movies on this list are quite recent. Hopefully, that means that they feel vibrant and relevant, and will continue to hold up for years to come.

Easy, Intuitive Cleaning with DEEBOT T10 OMNI: Hey YIKO, Vacuum and Mop My Home
ECOVACS DEEBOT T10 OMNI cleaning floors

This content was produced in partnership with ECOVACS.
Picture this, you've just sat down after a hard day's work, barely have a moment of respite, and your phone rings. It's your mother-in-law and she's going to pay an impromptu visit. Before even hanging up you're wracked by a state of panic. The house is a mess. There's clutter everywhere. It will take forever to organize, vacuum, mop, clean, and get everything else done before she arrives. It's not a fun situation but let's rewind here. If you had ECOVACS' newest state-of-the-art smart vacuum and all-in-one cleaning system, the DEEBOT T10 OMNI, the situation would be barely an inconvenience.

The DEEBOT T10 OMNI has an all-in-one station that handles just about everything you'd need it to, like auto-emptying the dustbin, auto-cleaning the mop attachments, and auto-hot-air-drying the mop. It's the most advanced docking station on the market, but AI is baked into this system at nearly every touchpoint. Intuitive AI voice controls allow you to issue voice commands without moving a muscle. It could be as easy as calling out, "Okay YIKO, start cleaning here!" It knows exactly where "here" is thanks to a built-in voice locator. AI is also leveraged to prevent the spread of granular particles while it's vacuuming, so it won't make a bigger mess. Coupled with sophisticated mapping and object detection, plus a large battery, this thing will just keep going as long as it needs to. If all of that sounds like something you might need, keep reading.
