    Two New Picture Frames, Each With A Unique Feature.

    I normally would have walked right on by a display of picture frames thinking there's nothing techie about them. But then I saw a block of foam on the Vista Frame table and I wondered what the connection was. It turns out the company has a wonderful goal and a super way to help save the planet with their frames. Here's how they put it: “Our frames preserve their contents, and keep them beautiful. Our process preserves the Earth, keeping it beautiful. We know it’s important to feel good about what you buy, so "picture this" for a moment... We pick up tons and tons of polystyrene [aka Styrofoam] from all over the world, process it into tiny pellets, and turn it into the material we use for our frames. All the while keeping it out of landfills! Doing good by creating things that look good in your home. All of Vista frames are ready made in popular sizes and are designed to be hung vertically or horizontally. So go ahead, and enjoy your Vista.” And I was amazed at how reasonably priced they are. They start at about $7 and up, most selling in the $12 to $15 range the spokesperson said.

    The Edgewood Frames are made with standard frame materials (not Styrofoam) but they feature a new removable easel so you can easily move a picture from a table to the wall. I don't see frame with that feature mentioned on the company website yet, but it's a brand new feature.
