Customers receive a thrill of excitement whenever they spy a brown UrthBox on their doorsteps—and not just because it's full of snacks and can be made into a fancy cardboard hat. Delivered each month, the curated collection is designed to serve as an alternative to unhealthy snacking in the face of stress, busy schedules, and other life struggles and to complement a healthy, fit lifestyle. Every package is filled with organic and GMO-free products ranging from organic juice blends and fruit and nut mixes to savory crisps and dried meats. Additionally, subscribers can specify what types of name-brand treats they'd like to discover each month by selecting one of four box types. The classic box is all-encompassing in its culinary scope, while the gluten-free box and vegan box embrace dietary restrictions. The diet box is stocked with products good for those who are counting calories or watching their carb and fat intake.
Play It Again Sports overhauls lockers with high-quality gear and rescues gently used athletic equipment from untimely retirement. Products from brands such as Nike, Adidas, and Wilson make up an all-star lineup across each store's shelves, which are replenished daily with goods for a wide selection of sports that ranges from baseball and football to snowboarding and lacrosse. Treadmills and exercise bikes equip bodies with muscular suits of armor, and pintsize and adolescent equipment arms youngsters with protective padding until they eat enough bologna to grow muscles of their own. To ensure its stock remains robust, Play It Again Sports encourages athletes to collect their lightly used gear—including bicycles—and bring it into a local store to either sell or trade.
Perfect Locks has serious standards. All of the company's clip-ons, sew & weaves, wigs, and fusion and tape hair extensions undergo a four-step process: procurement, refining, cleansing and conditioning, and a double quality inspection. Hair is collected in India from women under age 35 in a part of the country with soft water. During the refinement process, each strand is inspected in order to weed out grays, non-matching textures, and follicles that aren't team players. A 100% organic shampoo kicks off the cleansing and conditioning step, followed by drying in the sun to keep cuticles intact. The last stage consists of two quality inspections—first in India, then in California—before wearers can finally don their new, high-quality locks.
