Can Jot’s coffee concentrate make you forget about that $5 latte? Here’s what our editors say

{ object.primary_image.title }}

We gave Jot Ultra Coffee to three of our editors to see if it lives up to its promise of delivering barista-worthy drinks at home. Jot’s timing is impeccable. The startup burst onto the scene with its Ultra Coffee concentrate at the exact moment that coffee-shop denizens found themselves shut out of their favorite spots. Gone are the daily treats of oat milk lattes, cold brews, and café Americanos. In its place are mornings spent in our own kitchens, spilling AeroPress grinds everywhere or standing watch over our Bialetti Moka pots, wondering if we should just bite the bullet and spend some savings on an extra-sexy espresso machine . Just me? Okay. Read Full Story

For many people, the coffee shop is high up on the ever-growing list of previously daily conveniences and rituals you now miss, thanks to the necessity of social distancing and shelter-at-home orders.

Editor’s pick: Allbirds’ new running shoes are sustainable, fashionable, and unbelievably comfortable

{ object.primary_image.title }}

Meet the Tree Dasher, Allbirds’ first foray into technical running shoes made with natural fibers. Allbirds is a brand that keeps on giving . In the past month, the sustainable footwear company donated $500,000 worth of shoes (about 5,000 pairs) to healthcare workers before rolling out a “buy-one-give-one” donation model that allows folks to purchase and donate shoes for those on the front lines of the pandemic. And now, the company is making its first foray into performance footwear and launching an all-new running shoe —so we can enjoy some fresh air with sustainable, comfy, and cool-looking trainers on our feet. And there’s a give-back component to the new shoe launch as well. Read Full Story

Say hello to your new favorite WFH staples. There are silver linings to working from home—including the diversity it’s encouraging , the better air quality from decreased travel, the increased productivity companies and brands that are working remotely are experiencing, and the opportunity to just be comfortable. Not to say that being able to wear leggings while working is as important as diversity, but we’re counting all of our wins—small and large—right now. And if a new slew of really good deals on casual, comfy clothes from one of our favorite brands is something we can add to the list of positives, we’re doing it. Read Full Story

Here’s what happens to your brain when you don’t sleep

{ object.primary_image.title }}

Sleep deprivation can affect you in more ways than you think. Americans don’t get enough sleep. Even though it’s recommended for adults to log between seven and nine hours per night, most of us never meet that goal. And after a restless night—thanks to our newborn, that late cup of coffee, or work stress—we still pile into our cars or take the train to work. Being productive when our body wasn’t able to properly rest overnight is an uphill battle, and one that can have serious impacts on our productivity. But what exactly is happening to our brain the morning after an unintentional all-nighter? Here, experts explain exactly what happens when we don’t get enough sleep. (Spoiler: It’s not great.)

Editor’s pick: I’m obsessed with this earth-friendly, non-toxic laundry detergent

{ object.primary_image.title }}

I always wondered what it would feel like to smell rich and save the world at the same time. When I first saw DedCool’s Dedtergent–a new laundry detergent that just hit the market–I couldn’t fathom spending $1 an ounce on a liquid I was throwing into my secondhand washer. But now, I will tout very nice smelling laundry detergent that comes in a 100% recyclable (and stylish) tin as the luxury item we never knew we needed. It’s perfect for sheets, clothes, towels, and intimates (which I don’t wash by hand…oops). But the biggest selling point for spending a few extra dinero on cleaning your clothes? Dedtergent is one of the most environmentally friendly detergents out there. Everyone washes their clothes, and our current options are all packaged in plastic and aren’t exactly non-toxic.
