    23. A pair of cut-resistant gloves so you can grate, slice, and chop with full confidence. These are surprisingly light and comfortable for a product that can withstand a sharp blade.

    24. A suspended metal storage basket, so you can make use of under-shelf space in a refreshing and stylish way.

The possibilities are endless!

    26. Some bamboo charcoal air-purifying bags that absorb all the bad, mildewy, smokey, sweaty odours, and excess moisture from your life. Throw it in the closet, put it in your car, scoot it into your fridge, and let it freshen up your life.
