Put the planet first with these eco-friendly products

With our very busy schedules, sometimes I don't put as much effort into my green sensibilities. Some eco-friendly ideas, like recycling or making sure lights are turned off, are easy. Still I know that there are more ways that I can help the planet.

Here are some items that are helping my family be more green in a few simple ways.

Charles Viacin silicone lids
Whether you are grilling for the crowd or just the family, there are bound to be some leftovers. It is time to ditch the plastic wrap and cover your dish with Charles Viancin silicone lids.   Charles Viancin offers stylish, reusable silicone lids that are as beautiful as they are functional. Inspired by beauty and the complexity of nature, these products are fun and functional. From refrigerator to oven to table, these products work in all environments. For at home personal use to a covered dish at the summer potluck, your dish will be ready to go from refrigerator to cooking and back again with this versatile product.

SodaStream Source
The SodaStream and its family of products help families drink for the earth. With just one bottle from a SodaStream machine, a family eliminates 2,000 bottles of soda. The money saved is great, but the impact on our environment is huge. With 141 billion cans and bottles going to a landfill each year, a SodaStream reduces the waste production.
SodaStreams are a great way to enjoy your soda with a smaller impact on the environment. There are a variety of models and styles. Prices range from $79.99 up to $199.99.

Cool Gear CoolCan

The coolgearcan is a double wall insulated beverage container with a spill-proof sliding closure. It is created with the on-the-go lifestyle in mind. Everyone is familiar with the classic aluminum can shape. This reusable version helps consumers rethink their drink.

This new addition to the Cool Gear line of products comes in 50 trendy designs. The 16 oz can will keep a beverage cold for up to six hours. With a wide mouth and twist off top, the coolgearcan is very versatile. From smoothies to soda and everything in between, the user can enjoy an ice cold beverage on the go. Plus, these cans don't sweat. No need to worry about can perspiration on the outside of your container (or messing up a table, car, etc).
