Bags Bags and More Bags! I’m beginning to think that the bag is going to replace the stainless water bottle as the international signal of environmentalists.
A few weeks ago we reviewed a reusable grocery bag made by trader joes. Well, almost 30 minutes after that review went live I got an email from Steve at [...]
swiffer me this…. You get a call from a Realtor saying they would like to show your home… that’s great, but what do you do when they want to look at it THE SAME DAY and your house is far from clean? Well, if you’re the Green Gear family, you bust out a platoon of [...]
A couple of days ago I picked up a new toothbrush (RIP old toofbrush!), at Generation Green in Columbus, made by Radius. it’s called the Source toothbrush and is made mostly of recycled wood and paper pulp.

Mrs. Green Gear and I found this vodka on new years eve [...]
Wind me up Baby!

Strand of Multicolored LED Christmas lights (which are still going strong) for $20. But this year, the strand is 33ft long and only [...]
Sherman and Nemesis!
What a mouthful! You’d think the people at Simple Solutions could shorten that thing down but I guess some people don’t have the ability to edit themselves. We got a new dog about 1 month ago and as any dog owner can attest, a good stain and oder eliminator is a must.
While perusing [...]
John over at showerstart.com was kind enough to mail us the new Evolve model showerhead, called the road runner. This is an all-water, 1.59GPM low flow showerhead with 36 individual nozzles. Integrated into the showerhead is their shower start temperature controlled cutoff device they lovingly call the “ladybug.” The Ladybug itself retails at $29.99, the [...]
So Sleek! Even without the Chrome!
Today we’re reviewing the Agent 18 Eco Friendly iPhone case. A few weeks ago I gave in to the pressure to purchase an iPhone and once again went out to pay a premium for a fancy apple device. This compelling feeling BTW, I call the “Steve Jobs Tax.” Now, walking [...]
