S’well Water Bottle

In the US alone, an estimated 50 billion plastic bottles are dumped in landfill sites each year, and over 200 billion globally. By using a S’well bottle, you are reducing the number of plastic bottles in landfills and oceans, and supporting charity partners and the company’s efforts to bring clean water to the world’s poorest communities. It’s also a beautifully crafted bottle that keeps drinks cold for 24 hours and hot for 12, all without sweating in your hands or becoming too hot to handle. The bottle comes in a variety of colors and patterns to match your car interior, your personal style or both. Best of all for road warriors, the bottle fits a standard size cup holder. Woot!

Drop Stop Car Wedge

If you have a treasure trove of pens, coins, gum and other unidentifiable items under your car seat (and who doesn’t?) then the Drop Stop Car Wedge (As seen on ABC’s Shark Tank) is for you. The DSCW’s simple, one-size-fits-all design makes it the perfect accessory for any road warrior. It stops items from entering the “Carmuda Triangle” by blocking the space between your car seat and the center column in your car. The DSCW is made of high-quality neoprene which means you can wash it when needed. Perhaps the best feature of the car wedge is safety (20 percent of injury crashes in 2009 involved reports of distracted driving. (NHTSA). Catching your essential items means you won’t be fishing around for that pen / cell phone / important thing you just dropped, and can keep your eyes on your fries… eyes on the road. Definitely on the road.

Automatic

It’s a plug-in device coupled with an app. Together they form a system that improves your driving, saves you money and makes you safer. Setting up Automatic means plugging the car adaptor (the Link) into your car’s diagnostic port (the same one your mechanic uses). It then links via Bluetooth to your phone which means all your car data can now be analyzed by the app. The Link can emit sounds that tell you when you’re driving in a way that is expensive, like accelerating too fast or braking too hard. These are the things that will increase your gas and maintenance costs and can add up to thousands of dollars every year. Your Automatic Link can tell when you’ve been in an accident and work with your phone to alert loved ones and emergency services. It can even tell you where you left your car and help you get back to it. It doesn’t yet bring your car to you – we wish! Automatic also includes a beautiful dashboard where you can get insights into your driving habits and routes.
