Get this new water bottle/coffee cup combo designed to make everyday essentials more sustainable and easier to carry.
What makes Hitch different from the hundreds of reusable water bottles on
the market is that it has a removable barista-approved cup hidden inside — both full-sized, insulated, stainless steel, and leak-proof.
While reusable water bottles have become fairly mainstream, adoption of reusable cups is extremely low.
This is what Hitch aims to solve, making people’s coffee ritual sustainable and convenient with a cup that travels inside something many conscious consumers already carry.

Dad Who Wants To Work Out
Slim Fit Jeans BY again&again
These jeans are a great way to stay comfortable and zero-waste on those summer occasions when you still want to look sharp (and shorts just won’t do).
again&again is a circular fashion brand. Their mission is to inspire circular living by offering more comfortable jeans that will never be thrown out. Instead of letting their jeans reach landfill, they recollect them from consumers in order to upcycled them into new jeans through a chemical recycling process.
The secret is a 100% lyocell fabric that makes these jeans fully recyclable. In addition, the fabric makes the jeans softer, lighter, and more breathable than normal jeans.
Every element of again&again’s jeans’ design has been carefully considered with comfort and sustainability in mind: from the jeans’ dark wash (saves water in production) to their rivet-less design (makes upcycling possible) to their non-leather back patch (saves cows and reduces greenhouse gas emissions).
Another thing to like about gifting Dad with these jeans on Father’s Day? again&again plants a tree for every pair of jeans purchased.
