Karen Porte had an idea. The space between the upright handles of a rolling bag is just about the right size to hold a coffee cup. So Karen rolled up her sleeves and went to work inventing the tugo. Clearly, this multi-tasking mom and emergency room nurse is a problem solver.

“It happens to all of us,” says Karen, “Travelers have their briefcase, laptop, handbag, and carry-on, in a hurry to get to the gate while juggling a meal and beverage purchased in the terminal – they just run out of hands.”

But Karen and her husband, Tom, want to do more than just solve problems. They want a product designed, developed and produced the right way. The tugo is manufactured in the USA and is made using materials without phthalates. The packaging is recyclable paperboard.

About Us:No Sponge Left Behind

Not too long ago, we took a closer look at the sponges in our kitchen and realized something profound. Almost every other product in the cleaning aisle has undergone some kind of evolution, while sponges have been the same for decades. We set out to turn the world of cleaning products on its head – combining design and environmental responsibility to create functional, beautiful, and responsible alternatives.
