Today you can help change that by simply choosing a region in American that you think is most in need of a river cleanup via “liking it” on Facebook—the region with the most “Likes” will receive a river cleanup sponsored by Cascadian Farm, in celebration of the company’s dedication to sustainability. It will only take a second so c’mon and “LIKE” some water!

The Bamboo 3 Pod

What: Bamboo device charging station

Features: The Bamboo 3 Pod has three built-in slots to hold your cell phone, PDA, mp3 player or camera. The sliding front door allows you to conceal a 10″ or smaller power strip (not included) and all the charging cords in one area so you can avoid ugly cord spaghetti messes.

Green Factor: Made of sustainable, renewable bamboo. Also, using a power strip means there is only one thing to turn off when you’re not charging. Why turn it off? Because chargers are energy vampires that continue to draw power even when they’re not hooked up to anything!

Bonus: Can also be wall-mounted (drywall screws are included). We think it would make a great Father’s Day gift for the digital dad in your life!
