RECYCLED BIKE TUBE TRAVEL KIT: $ 27.50

What will they think of next?!? I just love any company that thinks outside the box and upcycles. The fact that they are made in the U.S.A. is a HUGE bonus for this Eco Mama!

RECYCLED ALUMINUM WATER BOTTLE (24oz. or 32oz.): $16.00 – 18.00
Liberty Bottles are the ONLY American made stainless steel bottle made from recycled steel!

Stainless Steel water bottles are a great option for several reasons. They are the most durable choice in reusable bottles. They contain no dangerous chemicals and are just as strong as Dad. Think of all the money you’ll save while keeping your Dad hydrated and happy.
