Blendtique – Build Your Own Wine

Consumer Update

Wine culture is woven into the very fabric of history. It can be traced from Ancient Greece to last night’s dinner and everything in between.

Though wine is ever-present, it still remains subjective from one person to the next. So it’s about time we customize the experience, don’t you think?

As featured on Shark Tank, Blendtique Wine Company is a revolutionary new concept where you can create and design a personalized wine blend right from the comfort of your own home. That means you can take part in the winemaking process.

We’re talking about more than a simple tasting, but the opportunity to blend, experiment, and even package a wine created just for you – and have fun doing it.

Your blending kit comes packaged in an authentic wooden wine crate and contains four premium single-varietal wines, an Erlenmeyer flask, a 10-millimeter measuring pipette, and an easy-to-use instruction guide.

Each Kit serves 2-4 people, or purchase a Combo Pack, which includes both a Blendtique Kit & 3, 6, or 12 Bottles of your Custom Wine.

If you really like what you’ve put together, you can order (or even order) custom bottles with your own personal label.

Head on over to blendtique.com to upload your favorite recipe, design your signature label, and order your very own personalized wines. Or give it as a gift to the wine lover in your life.

Plaine Products – Finding the Solution to the Plastic Problem

Consumer Update

You’ve heard that our use of plastic is quickly spiraling out of control, but did you know that the reason it’s such a problem is plastic is not biodegradable, nor is it ever “destroyed.” That means every piece of plastic ever created still exists on the planet.

By 2050, there could more plastic than fish in the ocean. Plaine Products was founded as a solution to this plastic problem.

All of Plaine Products’ shampoos, conditioners, body and face care are non-toxic, vegan, and cruelty-free. And they come in two scent options: rosemary mint vanilla or citrus lavender.

To address the plastic issue, they created a refillable packaging system that allows customers to send their empty bottles back to be cleaned and reused. You just order a product. Then when your bottles are running low, order a refill.

When you’re ready to switch the pumps over to the refills and send in your empty bottles, Plaine Products covers the cost. Not only are you using a vegan, non-toxic product that’s safe for your family, but you’re also part of the global solution.

You can choose from a variety of quality products by heading to plaineproducts.comtoday.

iDiversicons – Find and Emoji Just for You

Consumer Update

Shouldn’t the emoji that speaks for you, look like you? That’s exactly the idea behind iDiversicons, the world’s first diverse emoji.

In fact, they invented the five-skin tone standard now used by Apple and Google. They’ve made it their life mission to include as many people as possible, including all colors and races, so no one’s left behind.

If you have curly red hair, you’ll find an emoji just for you. Or if you have curly hair that you like to wear in two buns on the top of your head, then – you guessed it – you’ll find an emoji for you.

But iDiversicons doesn’t stop there…they also have emojis for various religions, people with disabilities, and the men and women in our armed forces. There’s even emoji that represent your favorite politicians.

And now, to make their emojis even more inclusive, iDiversicons has started a special crowdfunding drive so they can offer an even wider range for you to choose from. So the next time you send out a message, make sure it looks like it actually came from you.

iDiverisons is available for Apple and Android devices as well because one emoji does not fit all.
