Compared to metal and wood, nothing really beats plastic’s slippery yet giving, supple yet firm surface for mixing and measuring. The downside is that after disposal, it will take at least a thousand years for the kitchenware to decompose. Enter Bamboozle’s bio-plastics

This weekend the company that produces plastic-like kitchenware from a combination of bamboo and other renewable sources, put together a ‘Baking Bundle’ for sale at 20% off. At-home and/or in-restaurant chefs can scale up their cooking tools while cutting back on disposable plastic use with Bamboozle’s seven nesting bowls and seven-piece measuring cups and spoon set.  

Shop at Bamboozle

Bamboozle built loyalty during the pandemic by providing an alternative to single-use plastic, and it’s now looking to expand into more homes. While supplying sustainable cookware, the firm looks to have nailed the design as well. The ‘Baking Bundle’ has three color scheme options — a red, orange, blue, green, and gray line reminiscent of earthy, 1970s décor, a purple, blue, and gray combo that brings the bright funk, and a minimalist/industrial gray set.  

To create its cooking and dining ware, the six-year-old company uses Astrik, a 15% bamboo and 85% polylactic acid mix to create dishes, bowls, composter, and other kitchenware. (The plastic-like PLA, mixed in the Midwest, is manufactured with a combination of renewable sources such as corn starch, sugarcane, and/or tapioca.)

Bamboozle constructs many of its products from machines converted from use in the plastics industry. The company claims that only one-fifth of the greenhouse gases are emitted in making its products as compared to its plastic competition. Of course, once Bamboozle wares reach the end of their lifespans, they are biodegradable and don’t end up in toxic oceans and/or as landfill waste that persists for hundreds of years. 

The firm also intends to connect with smaller retailers who vend additional environmentally friendly products. As independent stores re-emerge in a new world, Bamboozle aims to be at the edge of the shift to zero-waste products. Sustainable goods tend to be more expensive than one-off plastics, which is why Bamboozle likes to surprise its base with sales. 

Bamboozle’s 14-piece, non-toxic, plant-based Baking Bundle is on sale through this weekend for $86;

Costco Kirkland products are actually items made by Duracell, Keurig, Reynolds, Starbucks, and other big names
You've been getting a deal on top-end products all along
Costco storefront

There's something pretty astonishing that starts happening to everyone around the mid-30s mark. A pure, unadulterated love for Costco. Sure, there may have been a healthy appreciation in those younger years. A love for the $1.50 hot dog and soda deal, perhaps. An impromptu trip here or there with a parent whose card got you through the door. But somewhere between a first mortgage and a couple of kids, you probably started seeing the signs. They start subtly - a lingering gaze at the stacked sweatpants, tempting you with their fleecy softness. Asking the hair-netted sample lady if those mini artichoke quiches are organic. Before you know it, you have your own damned membership card, and all of your gym socks come in packs of 24. It's happened to the best of us. And with this adoration for Costco inevitably comes the love for all things Kirkland, the beloved Costco brand whose label is stuck on just about anything you can find in the enormous store, from batteries to rotisserie chickens.

But have you ever wondered where those Kirkland products come from? If you're anything like us, you may have just mindlessly assumed that there was some humungous Kirkland factory spewing out all of these products on some obscure, magical Nebraskan farm. Or, perhaps you're more rational than that and actually realized that many Kirkland-labeled products are not uniquely Costco's at all. Many of Costco's popular Kirkland products actually come from big brand-name companies that allow Costco to rebrand them for a fee. Perhaps even more surprising is that this isn't anything new or a process that's only used by Costco. Many retailers tap big-name brands to do this.

Wanting to look and feel your best is natural. Feeling this way allows you to live life to the fullest, nail a workout, focus on the job, and sleep better. Thanks to the internet and especially social media, there is no shortage of ideas on achieving longevity and enjoying life. One such way is consuming apple cider vinegar daily.

The pantry staple for salad dressings and marinades can purportedly help you lose weight, manage blood sugar, and improve heart health. Kim Kardashian called a raw version of Bragg Apple Cider Vinegar a "miracle ingredient." No shame if you loved yourself a good Keeping Up With the Kardashians marathon. However, taking medical advice from a Kardashian isn't recommended, and not every social media fad is a good one.
Believe it or not, there is some science behind the purported benefits of apple cider. Still, you'll proceed cautiously, especially if you are living with certain conditions. Here's what to know about reported apple cider vinegar weight loss benefits and more.
