In honor of Earth Day this year, we want to retouch on why zBoard is such an amazing alternative material. Every year, thousands of units of furniture, literally tons, build up in our nation’s landfills. Way Basics helps reduce this buildup with our recyclable furniture that’s also 99% post-consumer paper, so we completely reuse material that has already been through the consumption process. We would like to remind everyone to help reduce our nation’s already-crowded landfills and find other creative ways of using and reusing your furniture!
Of course, reusing and recycling your furniture is not the only way to help sustain our Earth. Please comment below on your favorite ways of being eco-friendly at home (the wackier/more creative the better!) and be entered to win a cube for you and a friend (color of your choice).
Ps. Next week’s contest has to do with pictures of you/your family celebrating Earth Day so if you do anything to celebrate, be sure to snap a pic!

Marysa is the first winner of many to come! This time we gave away an Orange Vapur Water Bottle, and we will soon be giving away other products on the Way Basics blog. It’s our way of giving back to the Way Basics community!
Let’s get to know a little bit about Marysa:
Your name and where you’re from – Marysa, New York (Capital Region)
How did you hear about Way Basics? I think I stumbled upon Way Basics from a “green” website. I am always looking up information on environmentally friendly lifestyles, and Way Basics is fantastic. I have a Master’s Degree in Resource Management and Way Basics is a great site to browse some cool modern items, and I like how it has everything from kids items to sophisticated home decor. I’m thrilled I won the Vapur and I am definitely going to have to buy a Thinksport stainless bottle!
What you like to do in your spare time – spend time with the kids (including getting outdoors as much as possible with them), hiking, traveling, reading, cooking
An interesting factoid about yourself -
I spent a summer and a semester in Arizona at the Biosphere2
, it was absolutely amazing.

Announcing the second round of the Messy Room Contest! Made popular by Way Basics fans from across the country, here is your chance to air your dirty laundry and win some cash for the clutter!
Organization seems so simple, yet many times it’s just short of unachievable—that is, without the help of Way Basics of course! Last time we ran this contest we focused on messy bedrooms, so this time around we’ll be focusing on messy/disorganized living rooms and family rooms.
The Dirt: Send us a photo of your messy living room to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include yourself in the photo along with your name. We’ll keep entries open until the end of the week (Friday October 1st). The top entries will be announced right here on our blog on Monday October 4th, then we’ll let the loyal Way Basics blog followers vote on their pick for the winner of the contest.
The winner gets a $100 shopping spree at waybasics.com, so if you want to ensure victory, get your friends to vote for you! Good luck everyone and have fun! Ready, set, go!!

Our team has had so much fun with our Vapur bottles. We’ve freezed them with water to keep our cool this summer and then conveniently packed them when we’re done. Freeze it with juices for your kids a day at the park or beach. The caribeener lets you carry it hands free. Hook it on your jeans, hook it to a stroller, your bag, you name it. The possibilities and uses are endless. Vapur bottles have also been upgraded with a translucent cap. It used to be an opaque white, but now it matches the translucent styling of the pouch.
We’ve just got our first shipment or Orange colored Vapur. We’re looking for the most creative use of Vapur water pouches. Click “leave a comment” below or click here and share with us your ideas. We’ll randomly pick a winner on Friday 9/24.

As winter begins to loosen its grip, we find the familiar smell of flowers blooming and birds singing in time. Sigh.. What a wonderful reminder of the warm summer months to come—aaaand—spring cleaning.
This annual tradition of kicking out the winter blues summons morose memories of cleaning for weeks, only to find ourselves settling for stuffing everything in the closet and locking it up tight like Fort Knox. Not this spring!
We know that you all love contests, so this year we are having a messy closet contest in honor of the celebrated spring cleaning season. Whoever has the closet in need of the most help will win a $200 shopping spree at waybasics.com with free shipping. Spring cleaning doesn’t sound so bad now does it?
How do I participate? All you have to do is take a picture of your messy closet and email the pic to email@example.com. From there, we will choose the top pictures and post them on our facebook wall where Way Basics fans will vote on the winner.
When is the deadline? We are accepting entries for one week, ending on March 10th. At this point, we will select the finalists and let the fans on facebook vote for the winner. Good luck everyone!
