…Mac Mix will save you some cash?

Mac Mix

Mac Heads take note: Mac Mix could be your chance to save some serious cash on a bundle of the best Mac applications (Maclications?).

Unlike other shareware bundle events, which offer a discount bundle of pre-selected apps, Mac Mix lets you choose your own bundle. The end result is a bundle that has no fillers, and contains only the applications that you want and/or need.

Obviously there’s got to be a catch, so the discounts increase as you buy more apps. Any single app starts at 10% off, but if you buy three apps, that quickly climbs to 30%, and by 12 apps, you’re saving a full 75% off of the retail price. With 28 apps to choose from, picking out 12 good ones shouldn’t be too hard.

So what’s available?

Highlights include Parallels, MacGourmet, Forklift, HoudahGeo, TextExpander, Comic Book Lover, and much, much more.

Each app is categorized into one of five groups (productivity, web tools, image and video, system enhancements, and entertainment) and you can read up on each app before buying, including a star based rating system, and a bullet point feature list.

And if that’s not enough, part of the proceeds go towards planting trees to help out the environment, so you can probably get a write-off from the purchase of a Mac Mix if your tax guy is willing to be creative.

…It’s Things Thursday: Lakai Recycled Program?

Lakai Recycled Program

If you’d like to go green in style, then check out the Lakai Recycled Program.

By “applying excess shoe materials that would otherwise be thrown away to selected styles each season”, Lakai is turning trash into unique pairs of kicks that are good looking and good for the environment.

In addition to the recycled materials (leather, suede, mesh) the Recycled Program shoes will also feature soles comprised of new gum rubber mixed with regrind rubber waste, reducing new material by up to 50%.

Another benefit of the program is that each shoe will have a unique look that is the result of whatever materials they happened to have around that day, so no two pairs will share the same material and/or color combinations.

Are you ready to go green?

…Vodka 360 is an eco luxury alcohol?

Vodka 360

If you care about the environment as much as you care about your imbibe-ment, then check out 360 Vodka, which has dubbed itself the world’s first “Eco Luxury Vodka”.

    360 Vodka is crafted from a philosophy of eco-awareness and corporate responsibility. This ideology is then manifested throughout [their] greener processes and greener products.

Each bottle is quadruple distilled through a highly energy efficient process, and then five times filtered for a great taste.

The packaging is also “green”, with the use of 100% post-consumer waste and chlorine free paper processing.

Are you ready to get drunk for the environment?

…Paper and plastic are bad?

Paper Or Plastic?

Which do you choose?

If you’re trying to save the world, then your answer should be neither, as both come with downsides that negatively (and drastically) affect the environment.

To see exactly what each choice is doing to the environment, check out the The Washington Post’s comparison; because small changes are needed if we want to make a big difference.
