Took a stroll through the very new, and very green, High Line Park in lower Manhattan this weekend. Shot in HD on our tiny Flip Ultra. Here’s some of what we saw.
We love our dads. And there are many ways to express our gratitude for all they do. Make a play date — hike, bike, golf — or pick-up a little something that you know he’ll love. Keep it sustainable, Fair Trade made, organic, and special. Here are a few ideas to kick around…
Most dads could use a little more style. Above, is some eco friendly head gear to help cut an eco stylish path whether on or off the golf course; $33 – $50 @ headchange.com.
And cool and comfy, 100-percent recyclable and biodegradable flip flips for relaxing at the pool, beach, or on the home front; in lots of colors, $29.99 @ feelgoodz.com

Or freshen up his green grooming with the organic shave and skin Mojito Man Gift Set, made with organic botanicals; ($35.30) @ earthLoverShopping.com.
