Safety Reflector


If you walk along a street at night, you’ll only become visible to car drivers within less than 100 feet, not enough for them to react and veer away. Using something reflective is a cheap and easy way to decrease the risk of an accident. Wearing a safety reflector, you’ll give the driver of the car over 400 feet to brake and slow to a stop.

Najell

Najell develops innovative baby products for parents who choose to live an individualistic lifestyle when entering parenthood. Najell was born out of a need to remain active with a sleeping baby without waking it up. The result was the SleepCarrier. Other products include the WRAP, an all-in-one solution that combines the closeness of a wrap with the simplicity of a baby carrier. The well thought out details make it childishly easy to get the baby up on the chest and have your hands free for everything else in life which is also important.
