Pet Project The Pitch: Did you know there are about 78 million owned dogs in the U.S. alone? That's a lot of kibbles … not to mention, bits. Provender International Corp. (asi/79975) has a special treat for man's best friend. Item FFIG2A is an 8-oz. cello bag full of honey-flavored dog treats. Perfect for pampered pooches everywhere. Think doggie daycares, obedience schools (but only if they behave, of course), dog shows, pet parades and more. Pricing starts at: 12; $4.58-R. Click here: http://79975.asisupplier.com/. The Bottom Line: Give a dog a bone.
Where's the Beef? The Pitch: According to CNN.com, Meatless Mondays are part of a growing movement to encourage people to give up meat one day a week for health and environmental reasons. I'll have to start next week, as I already have a London Broil marinating in the fridge. Fundcraft Publishing (asi/55530) offers Recipes for the Vegetarian in You, featuring 200 recipes and a glossary of terms. Pricing starts at: 100; $3.33-U and item FCP14 would be great for health programs, dieticians and weight-loss centers. Click here: www.dailyimpressions.com. The Bottom Line: Veggies in vogue.
Home Sweet Home(?) The Pitch: I'm working from home today, awaiting the plumber's arrival. Nothing gross, just a leaky faucet. When you're a homeowner, it's always something, am I right? That's where Quick Point Inc. (asi/80150) comes in with item QP-51185, a homeowner's hardware kit that includes 12 sheet metal screws, 12 plastic anchors, 6 flathead wood screws, 8 cup hooks, 6 push pins, 2 thumb tacks, 12 picture hangers and 32 nails. Great idea for real estate agents, insurance and mortgage companies, carpenters, and home improvement stores. Pricing starts at: 100; $3.59-R. See it here: http://www.quickpoint.com/. The Bottom Line: Mr. Fix-it.
Fashion & Function The Pitch: You can be eco-conscious and fashion-conscious at the same time. What? You don't think Mother Nature is fashion-minded? Along comes Two Lumps of Sugar (asi/92389), not only with their adorable name, but with their adorable offering of products, including stylish, non-woven grocery totes. Yes, I said stylish. They come in patterns like zebra, leopard (my personal favorite) and floral and pricing starts at: 2; $3.50-R. You can see them here: http://www.twolumpsofsugar.net/. The Bottom Line: Colorful carry-all.
