solio hybrid 1000 – stay charged-up in 2009

Is one of your New Year’s resolutions to reduce the size of your derriere by getting outdoors and actually experiencing nature? If so, this solar charger from Solio can keep most of your gizmos and gadgets charged while you do all that bird watching, mountain climbing and biking.


The Solio Hybrid 1000’s carabiner clip allows you to attach it to almost anything and it comes with adapters for most small devices, cellphones and MP3 players.  A full charge will take about 8 hours of direct sunlight – or 6 hours if it’s plugged into a USB port.  The rugged shock- and weather-proof case is designed to withstand the rigors of your manly…or womanly lifestyle.  Measures about 7″ long.  Production of this solar charger is offset by tree plantings in protected forest, and is thus, carbon neutral.

Toasty Boys – thermal organic cotton boxers

Don’t want to freeze your buns off?  Here’s something toasty for the boys.


From Chicago-based designer, Christopher Anthony, comes the first organic cotton thermal boxer briefs intended for casual wear.  After 22 years of cutting off his long thermals to make shorter thermal undies, he figured it was time to bring some organic cotton thermal boxers into the mainstream.  In Christopher’s words, “take care of your boys in the winter, they’re your most prized possessions.”

Watch for his bamboo boys to be launched this spring, and something for the ladies in the not too distant future, think “buns.”
