I am all for going eco-friendly, but sometimes it isn’t easy or fun. Vapur is making it easy, fun, and simple! It all starts with a water bottle that you can use and reuse again and again! It’s a neat concept that is easily adapted into your everyday life. First of all, it is a water bottle that folds, now if that is not cool enough, each bottle comes with a built in clip that makes it simple and easy to clip onto a book bag, purse, or even a belt loop! You can take it virtually anywhere and you can hardly feel it because they are very light weight plastic material. Personally, I think they look pretty awesome. There are different sizes and series to choose from all ranging in price. There is even an artist series for those of you who don’t think a folding water bottle is unique enough (haha). The resources used to make one single water bottle are surmountable, so why not just simplify things and get a Vapur bottle and save the Earth one sip at a time!
Who says you can’t look good when contributing to charity? Jewelry for a Cause (JfaC) vends very cute pieces that contribute to good-will organizations like animal rescue programs and breast cancer organizations. This company was started in 2008 by Jessica Mindich–a former lawyer and a mother of two children–with the purpose in mind to make inexpensive and wearable pieces of jewelry for schools and charities for fund raising purposes. As this jewelry sparkles with good intentions, it has caught the eyes of media like People magazine, Instyle Magazine, O! The Oprah Magazine, along with FOX and ABC newscasts and has been worn by celebrities like Demi Lovato, Jojo, Ashley Simpson Wentz, and Debbie Ryan.
JfaC offers adorable and preppy talisman pennant pieces, and even fund raising kits for your organization. All merch is pretty affordable; the kits coming $100 a set, and no more than $35 for the other things. Ten to twenty percent of proceeds go to a pre-selected charity.

Chegg.com for those of you not in know is a website developed around in new trends in academic life. It’s a book store for college text books that not only allows you to buy these books but also gives you the option to rent. Renting text books is a trend that has grown quicker than the gremlin population at all you can eat buffet after midnight. Everyone is doing it know from the bookstores on college campuses across the nation to major corporations like Amazon. Now these website are useful for starving college students as they can save cash paying almost half price or lower for their text books, but there are several catches one must look at before deciding to rent books.
The first one is how responsible you are. You see me being the irresponsible college student I am, would forget to mail the books back to Chegg and since I used my irresponsible debit card to pay for it, the money gets taken out of my bank out when the due date hits. Putting people like my self out of money. The second item you have to look at when renting is whether you’re going to need the book in the future. College is supposed to get you ready for a professional career and further learning, as you might need to reference a text at your job because I actually didn’t learn anything like me. Go Me! So if I rented the book I can’t reference seeing as I had to return it, thus in my perfectly pessimistic world I lose my job. Anyway, so choosing whether or not to use Chegg ultimately depends on how responsible are you with time and money, with a little bit of foresight thrown in.
