START SMALL. BUILD LARGE.

“When 2020 arrived and I was still dropping cords, I began creating a product that would solve all my cord problems. After dozens of prototypes came CordBrick™ [Patent Pending] – a new kind of cord management device that solves a slew of cord (and phone) problems!

CordBrick™ hit the market in late 2021, and our customer testimonials, independent awards, and approval for patent (among other things) tell the story since then.

Taking on the challenges of a startup has been fun – and difficult – but I wouldn’t trade it, because for me, CordBrick™ is about more than that.

You see, I wasn’t prepared to start a business when I originally thought of the idea for CordBrick™ in 2015.

Not until 2017 did my personal growth process accelerate after I quit drinking. It didn’t happen overnight; only with the support of family, friends, and – frankly – a group of total strangers who shared with me their common solution of using a design for living. It has worked.

To give back and help support causes like ones that helped me, CordBrick LLC gives back to 501(c)(3) organizations who are constructing or maintaining housing for substance recovery & treatment programs.

FROM THE POCKET OF AN OVERCOAT

FROM THE POCKET OF AN OVERCOAT

MEET MAX

Max is friendly and curious.

He loves to be with family.

Max prefers to be home, but also looks for adventure — by himself and with friends.

From the Pocket of an Overcoat” is based on the real-life story of a cat named Max adopted by Vincent’s son Matthew from a homeless woman in Dallas who found Max as a tiny kitten and had him in the pocket of her overcoat as she was trying to find him a home. The tale is about an affable cat, Max Buckles, and how he finds himself and his way to a new home – moving from the cozy overcoat pocket of Sally in the city, to the country with Farmer Buckles and his other animals, including four dogs – Sam, Tots, Scotty (who is not Scottish, but is plaid), and Junior Buckles. Along the way, he discovers a true sense of belonging within his new family. As told through the journey of Max the cat, this is a story about self-identity, acceptance, and animal rescue and adoption.

A portion of each book sale of “From the Pocket of an Overcoat” will be donated to organizations that promote animal rescue and adoption – The Humane Society and Best Friends. Readers and fans of Max Buckles can like and follow the book on Instagram and Facebook, and can also send an email to [email protected] with proof of purchase to get a special Thank You note from Max himself. To learn more, visit www.maxbuckles.com or explore the following hashtags: #maxbuckles, #maxbucklesbooks, #maxthecat, #readenjoysharemax and #fromthepocketofanovercoat.”

Blue Lake ECOLIFE Plastic Free Tape and Dispenser

Blue Lake ECOLIFE
Blue Lake ECOLIFE Plastic Free Tape Rolls and Dispenser

“Plastic tape dispensers are rarely recycled and contribute to the 25% increase in plastic waste generated during the holiday season. Ying Liu is an Asian American mom on a mission to solve the plastic problem through innovation.

  • A True Magic: This plant-based tape, complete with a plastic-free dispenser, works like magic to repair rips and tears seamlessly, perfect for gift wrapping on holidays and birthdays. It’s also photo-safe and writable.
  • Toxic-Free: This tape comes without any toxic glue or ink. The dispenser and packaging are free of plastic film or coating, ensuring a clean and green choice.
  • Environmentally Friendly: Crafted from plant-based materials, this tape minimizes waste, and the refillable dispenser is made of molded fiber, which is recyclable alongside paper products.
  • User-Friendly Design: The award-winning dispenser design makes refilling and reusing a breeze, providing a convenient and sustainable solution.
  • Ample Supply: You’ll receive four rolls of transparent tape made from cellulose fiber. Each roll offers up to 630 uses with a 3/4-inch cut each time.
  • Package Contents: This package includes one tape dispenser, four transparent tape rolls, four bookmarks, and a reusable container box for organized storage.

Former teacher, Apple executive, and ecopreneur, Ying’s epiphany struck at a landfill, where the sight of endless waste juxtaposed against the ocean horizon hit too close to home. As a mother, she couldn’t stand the idea of her children being unable to enjoy the ocean later in life. Enter Blue Lake Packaging, developing affordable, sustainable, fiber-based alternatives to everyday products.

Ying’s latest innovation, launched December 5, is a biodegradable alternative to traditional household tape and single-use dispensers with just as much sticking power and dispensing force. Every aspect of the product, from the packaging to the dispenser and the tape itself is 100% plastic-free.

Now available on Amazon, Blue Lake ECOLIFE Plastic-Free Tape and Dispenser is made from a fusion of wood and cotton fiber and caters to the growing number of shoppers seeking eco-friendly products. “
