ALEX Bottle featured on The San Franista, “Outdoors Again >> The Amrita Edition”
Ah, weekend getaway. I’m still getting back to it after a camping trip with pals took me to Yosemite, and while I’m not much of a camper, well-outfitted friends demonstrated how much nicer being outside all night can be with select gear. Since I’ve been back in the City by the Bay, I’m realizing what I should have packed from a few eco-minded companies on the West Coast: a) Portland-based Nau’s new merino wool shirt-dress; b) the BPA-free ALEX Bottle, which their team tells me is better for mixed drinks than hot ones; and c) Alite’s “sexy hotness,” alleged to be “the perfect sleeping bag for making love in the woods”–finally! I would have considered it guilty pleasure camping until mi amiga Amrita (who’s woefully London-bound) introduced me to “glamping,” or packing drop earrings in preparation for communal bathrooms.
