Technological innovation comes with great benefits. No surprise there. But it also has side-effects: plastic packaging, the overuse of raw materials and creation of electronic waste. Nimble wants to change that.
Nimble focuses on minimizing environmental impact by bolstering e-waste recycling, using eco-friendly packaging and utilizing better materials in all its devices. The Wireless Pad is a prime example of this philosophy come to life. Compatible with any wireless-charging devices, the Wireless Pad can charge multiple devices at once. It’s covered in a fabric made from organic hemp and recycled plastic bottles; it’s also built with plant-based bioplastics derived from corn and sugarcane. It’s refreshing to see an innovative product that can do better for the environment, too.

Goruck Veterans Day Sale
Save $60+ The founder of Goruck spent years as a Green Beret fine-tuning precisely what he needed in his go ruck. From there the brand expanded to create military-inspired gear, apparel and footwear. The original tactical backpack GR1 started the trend, and now each bag produced by Goruck has a set purpose. The Bullet Ruck offers a way to streamline your morning — it’s a simple pack that is just as durable and tough as the original. The Rucker was built for the Goruck challenge (an intense race) and has Expert Ruck Plates, which won’t break, meaning your laptop is safe from practically everything. Both are rainproof with silent zipper pulls, feature multiple pockets and molle attachments, so you can attach what you need to the pack. — Meg Lappe
Coleman Indoor-Outdoor Air Mattress
Save 50% There are few things more satisfying than a good and timely deal. Today, on Amazon Coleman’s well-reviewed indoor-outdoor air mattress is half off on Amazon today.
The SupportRest is taller than most air mattresses, which makes it easier to get in and out of bed (and at a more familiar height in general). Smartly, the outside ring of the mattress is slightly elevated from the rest of the mattress — this makes rolling off the mattress a lesser likelihood.
This queen-sized mattress, which Coleman suggests for either indoor or outdoor use, does not come with a pump, but one can be added to your order for $17 (look right above the “Add to Cart” button). You could also use a pump you’ve got in the closet from air mattresses past, too.
Frye Lace-up Boots
Save up to 54%:If your go-to boots are worse for wear, this is an ideal time to invest in a new pair. Though the majority of the U.S. is experiencing a relatively mild, snow-free fall, winter is just around the corner. A rugged pair of boots is a necessity when the weather turns and heritage American brand Frye offers a range of styles appropriate for the cooler months. If you head over to Nordstrom Rack today, you can save up to 54 percent on a few well-made lace-up styles. Normally priced well over $300, these boots now cost as little as $165 — that’s a preseason sale worth taking advantage of. — John Zientek
