Braxley Bands environmentally sustainable and trendy Apple Watch bands

Braxley Bands environmentally sustainable and trendy Apple Watch bands

Slipping my Apple Watch on and getting out the door for the day is much more effortless with my Braxley Band. Not that fastening my Apple Watch is that stressful, but it is just one easier task in my morning routine and a small difference. I have several Apple Watch bands to match my day or clothing. I grab my Braxley Band for everyday use. I can just slip my wrist through and go. Some mornings, I need ‘easy’ like that.

Better than a simple convenience, Braxley Bands are environmentally sustainable and crafted using recycled plastic that is machine washable and moisture-wicking. This band is truly made with care. Using very little resources, the brand makes sure the environment is not harmed in their process. In fact, Braxley Bands has partnered with Trees for the Future, and for each band sold, a tree is planted with partner farmers in forest gardens throughout Africa.

What about fit? A couple of things – they have different sizes, so take a quick measurement of your wrist. If you are not satisfied or anything happens to your band in the first year, they have your back with a replacement warranty. If it stretches out, toss it in the wash to get it back into its original shape. If it feels a tad snug, hold it stretched a few seconds and give it some time, it will eventually mold to your wrist size. I measured my wrist and knew if I ordered a size up it may be too loose. The size I ordered was just a little snug, but not uncomfortable at all. It has now formed much better to my wrist size and stretched to where it needs to be as I have worn in off and on the past 2 weeks.

Ready to support Braxley Bands and order one? Visit the Braxley Bands shop and choose your watch and wrist sizes and begin choosing a color or design. I have the blackout color.

I recently bought a standard toothbrush that is basically a landfill nightmare made in mass production for almost $5. Now I see that the Bamboo Toothbrush from Nudge is also $5 and is a much better product all the way around! It has a bamboo handle and even the bristles that I use to scrub my teeth and gums are made from soft bamboo. And the entire toothbrush is 100% compostable. Why wouldn’t I buy Nudge and feel better about my purchase as well. It is affordable!

Stemple Creek Ranch offers superior quality grass fed and finished meats

Stemple Creek Ranch offers superior quality grass fed and finished meats

From your front door to Michelin star restaurants, Stemple Creek Ranch offers superior quality grass fed and finished meats. What started over 3 generations ago from an Italian Immigrant who came to Northern California to open and run his dairy, Stemple Creek Ranch is still in the same family and now offering meats.

I hosted a small Holiday gathering and served the Cross Rib Roast and it was delicious. I rubbed it down with herb butter and roasted slowly. Paired with a baked potato bar, it was an easy meal for company and was a hit! That meat was complimented by everyone at the table. The next day on sandwiches it was so delicious.

It has been a while since I have brought meat home from the grocery store. I prefer grass fed to standard and grass finished meats and the best value is from a butcher. Ordering meat boxes bulk meats or supporting your local ranch will elevate your meat dishes and ensure you are eating healthy and sustainable meats.

“In 2002 Loren’s father, Al Poncia, received the NRCS Excellence in Conservation Award from the U.S. Department of Agriculture. This is the highest award given by the Natural Resources Conservation Service to honor those outside the Federal government for their work in conservation.

Stemple Creek Ranch offers meats and cheeses, including jerky and sausages. The farm is located in Marin County in Northern California. The beef, lamb, and pork are raised on organic pastures and all animals are treated with respect and care.

Keep these meats and dairy in mind when you need to serve the best of meats for your family and friends. It arrives packed fresh and ready to prepare or freeze until you are ready to use. They make boxes for gifts as well. Visit the Stemple Creek Ranch store.
