Port Co’s in the Wild

News 🗞️

It’s officially summer (woot woot!) and that calls for hot days and extra hydration courtesy of IQBAR’s IQMIX. Rumor has it that Costco is offering it at a criminally good price and are thinking of carrying it year round. That’s where you come in. Go to THIS LINK. Buy a unit of Blood Orange and/or a unit of Passion Fruit (you don’t need to be a Costco member). Wait for the order to arrive, then leave a review on both pages. Will, IQBAR’s Founder and CEO, is also ready to sweeten the deal for our Sweater community. After you leave your review, venmo him @Will-Nitze and he’ll reimburse 30% of the purchase price.

Graza keeps knocking it out of the park – this time introducing 100% recyclable refill cans of their delish Sizzle and Drizzle. Olive oil is notorious for being difficult to maintain quality and large containers welcome oxidation. Graza’s refill solves the need for a dark vessel and is environmentally responsible. Get your cans here.

Nomadica is continuing its streak, this time being named a top canned wine by Eater. Check out the feature here.
