Finally! A Wireless Phone Charger That Marries Sustainability and Style
Nothing gets us more jazzed than a well-designed product that solves an everyday problem. That’s why we’re totally crushing on Swich, a wireless charger with an angled stand that makes it super easy to use your phone while it’s charging. We can’t resist accessing our favorite apps even if our phone has a 10% battery life.
The cool thing about Swich is that you don’t have to twist and turn your neck to peek at your phone’s screen when it’s charging like you would for other portable chargers. Swich is designed to float over your desk and even allows you to switch it (get it?) from a vertical to horizontal position. It’s perfect to keep on your desk if you’re charging your phone while working or studying and want to take a break to check your notifications or watch some sweet YouTube vids.
Swich is made from sustainable materials such as walnut and ceramic in order to achieve an organic look sure to add a splash of sophistication to your decor. Thanks to a micro-suction tape featured at the top of the device you can rest assured that your phone will be secured when charging. And, the cherry on top? Swich is compatible with iPhone, Android and Windows phones!
We’re not the only ones excited about Swich. The Kickstarter campaign for the wireless phone charger has surpassed its $25,000 goal with less than 20 days left. The first batch of Swich chargers are set to be shipped out in November 2014.

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
