Planet Fuel Beverage Company: Connecticut Building this company has been a labor of love – our goal from the very beginning was to offer parents a high quality product for their families; featuring the best organic ingredients we can find with no added preservatives, refined sugars or flavors. Just good, healthy juice and water. We are committed to creating low-sugar products simply by adding a touch more of our natural spring water – this way we all enjoy a little less sugar in our diets while still tasting bold, fresh fruit flavors.
Cursor and Thread: Vancouver Cursor & Thread was unofficially started in the ancient times of 2011 by a pair of friendly Canadians who enjoyed men’s accessories, but had a hard time finding ones they loved (what else was a scientist and a philosopher to do together). Cursor & Thread is based in sunny Vancouver and at the time of writing focuses on bow ties and suspenders (leaving pants and shirts up to millions of other brands). All products are manufactured in small batches, often by hand, in Canada or USA by people you’d like. We hope you like compliments…
