Bathroom Break with PeopleTowels

Using a public restroom can be a dreadful process. Some people have fears and turn on the faucet so people can’t hear their stream. Like it matters anyway. It’s not like people will say, “Oh my god, Becky. Can you hear the way she pees?” Others think washing and drying their hands, even though it’s necessary, can be a pain. Will there be soap? Will there be a hand dryer or an automatic or manual paper towel dispenser? You may complain because you don’t feel like waving hello to the dispenser, waiting for it to give you one paper towel. You’d rather grab one yourself. But you rarely take just one. You may pull enough that it seems like you’re performing a magic trick like the guy pulling a scarf out of his mouth. As such, we don’t think about the environmental consequences of our actions; we focus more on the inconveniences. Luckily, there’s PeopleTowels to change that and they’re on a mission to put change in our hands. Literally.

PeopleTowels is a reusable personal hand towel company encouraging people to B.Y.O.T. out in the world. It’s a pretty simple concept. Bring your own towel. People will only be jealous. Especially if you have someone follow you to the bathroom with your towel draped over their arm like a butler. A little intrigue goes a long way. The towels are eco-chic and cool. So they will only do wonders for those first impressions. More importantly, PeopleTowels are made of 100% organic cotton and help reduce your environmental impact. Besides the fact that the average person uses 3,000 paper towels outside of their home a year, the below image should put the benefits of switching to PeopleTowels in perspective for you.

Imagine the difference you could make. Everyone plays a part in this world, whether you realize it or not. Since you are reading this, I feel like we’re cool. We’re cool, aren’t we? So please, use my ambassador code to receive discounts on PeopleTowels. Enter ambassadortwhk2 in the promo code field and get 10% off 2 or more PeopleTowels.

When Cats Attack IKEA

Cats. You love them or you hate them. But if you watch a commercial with them invading an IKEA store…well again, you’ll either love them or hate them.

It’s no secret. Videos with animals are destined to become online sensations. (Ahem, sneezing panda) That might not have been the ultimate motive for the Wembley, England IKEA store, but the little pussy cats certainly helped spread the word about their “Herding Cats” experiment where 100 of them were released in the store to see what they would do. After hours, of course. Allergic people would have gone into a sneezing frenzy and then the germs would have been everywhere. It just wouldn’t have been good. Regardless, the odd experiment proved cats love IKEA and make themselves right at home. I just hope there was plenty of kitty litter on set.

If you build it, they will drink

Admit it. You judge a bottle of wine by its label. I do. But don’t we all?

(If you’re a connoisseur, shut your trap and take off your fancy pants.)

“I don’t know if the wine is good. I haven’t tasted it. The label looks cool though, so it must be good.” Yep, that about sums up the mental process while scouring the wine aisle. Now if bottles of wine had faces, then they’d be much more trustworthy. You can always trust a face, especially if you can build it to have that “I’m funny and I taste good” look.

The Creative Method designed these fabulously funky wine labels so you can BYO – Build Your Own. You can still act all sophisticated. Just let your wine bottle make the funny faces. Not only would it make a great gift, but it’d make a great friend. You could totally have that Wilson thing going on from Castaway. Tough day. Lonely, quiet night. After 3 glasses, you’d find yourself being Chatty Cathy and gossiping with your wine bottle. Don’t act like you haven’t done it before. Now it’s just more humanized.

*Sadly, these bottles are not available for purchase. They were created specifically as gifts for The Creative Method’s clients. One can only hope they acquire a winery as a client soon so we can begin consuming their wine and making funny faces other than our own.
