It just keeps getting better and better...

Guess who got an internship with Earth-List.com? Yours truly! :)

I attended the Reverse Internship Fair last Thursday at my school, CSUSM, and talked to several likely prospects and I'm happy to say that I am an official intern at Earth-List! I'm so excited to get started and gain valuable experience as I grow within the company! I'll update you on my progress as time goes on. There were two other eco-friendly companies that were at the fair whom I had a privilege of speaking with: EcoDog (http://www.ecodoginc.com/) and Natural Earth. Please check them out!

A few days ago, my friend, Rick, showed me his uber-cool wallet that was made from recyclable material, called Mighty Wallet. Check it out here: http://www.mightywallets.com/. Here is a description from the website:

"The Mighty Wallet® is tear-resistant, water-resistant, expandable and recyclable. Made from Tyvek® (think express mail envelopes), these cool wallets resist tearing because of thousands of interlocking plastic fibers spun in random patterns, giving them incredible strength. 

The ingenious origami construction was and is the original folded Tyvek® wallet designed by Terrence Kelleman. The stitch less design reinforces the materials own strength and allows these very slim wallets to instantly expand and adapt to your own personal storage needs. The Mighty Wallet® will expand right before your eyes (watch the videos). 

Because of the slim, lightweight and water resistant features, you can take these cool wallets anywhere. They make great "night out" wallets for a slender silhouette and the writable surface conveniently acts as a quick note pad on the go. 

In time, the Mighty Wallet® will gradually soften and patina but, even after years of wear, it will still offer surprise and solicit intrigue. "

Check out Dynomighty Design for more clever eco-friendly products: http://www.dynomighty.com/. I think it's great that these designs are not only stylish but sustainable, not to mention durable! What's not to like about it?!

Speaking of durable products, I got a seatbelt purse by Harvey's about four years ago and I love it. I recently started using it again. It is made from seatbelt material and it is durable! I'm not sure if it's eco-friendly or not but here is the link so you can check it out: http://www.seatbeltbags.com/.

Anyways, I hope you all have a great holidays and don't forget to make it your New Years resolution to be more eco-friendly! :)

'Til next time,
