And, I listed boxes and new cleaning accessories.

Social Business

As I posted about a few days ago, we are working to define our sustainable business practices. Muhammad Yunus recently wrote an article that describes our ideals well. While we might not ever win the Nobel prize like Mr. Yunus, we are part of the new generation of capitalists with a conscience.

Free Maxpedition Gear Shipping

For quite some time I have been working with our Yahoo store software to figure out how to offer free shipping on Maxpedition Gear, just like we do on eBay. I still don't know how to make it work properly, but I did have a brainstorm this afternoon. I set the Maxpedition gear to weigh nothing, then set the calculator to charge $0 for everything that weighs nothing, and *tada* effective free shipping on Maxpedition Gear. Enjoy!

A quote from "Collapse" by Jared Diamond which reflects the importance of sustainable business practices

"...population and environmental problems created by non-sustainable resource use will ultimately get solved in one way or another: if not by pleasant means of our own choice, then by unpleasant and unchosen means..."

Sustainable Business Practices

One of the unique aspects of Baying Hound is the care and consideration we put into making our business environmentally and socially sustainable. We are working on defining our sustainable business practices to make it clearer to customers, vendors, and our financial backers why sustainability is a reason to support Baying Hound. We are also exploring certification by a credentialing organization.

To that end, we want to hear from our readers: What practices are important to you? Comment or email us your thoughts.

Foliage Green Maxpedition coming soon

We are still working on purchasing another product line. In the meantime, we are ordering Maxpedition Gear's new color: foliage green. This dark grey/green is the perfect compliment to ACU camouflage wear and pretty stylish on its own.

More articles about BPA

Our local newspaper finally did a story about BPA. The Columbus Dispatch interviewed Jon at our favorite local outdoor store, Clintonville Outfitters. (I guess these guys are competition, but they deserve a mention anyways because they are a great local business.)

Toxicology Letters recently published a study that found BPA leaks from polycarbonate bottles throughout their life, and increases up to 55 fold when boiling water is added.

Alex is working on a blog post about how SIGGs do not contain BPA and why the SIGG inner liner is safe. Right, Alex?
