    Giz Wiz Show 1717 March 7, 2019 Independent Show #199

    Happy Anniversary!!!The Giz Wiz Show starts year 13 overall & our 5th year of Independent Production! (First Giz Wiz show was February 20th, 2006.) Thanks to our wonderful Patreon supporters we continue on! If it wasn't for them, the Giz Wiz Show would be gone. If you'd like to support OMGchad & DickDe in our independent venture (we pay for everything ourselves, including travel) just click the Patreon link at the top of our show web page: http://www.gizwiz.tv/. You can also contribute just once via the PayPal link that's there too. Thank you for doing that! Our show wouldn't exist without our viewer's support, but a bit more support would be a big help. Thanks from OMGchad & DickDe!  

    The first week of March brings the International Home + Housewares Show in Chicago. Luckily for those reporters who live in NY there was a gadget-filled preview right here in the big apple. Here are 3 of the more unique ones we found at the event.  

    It's time to say goodbye to throw away plastic straws. 

    Yes, plastic straws can harm the environment and kill aquatic sea life. This company says you can be part of the solution, by using their Asobu Eco Friendly Re-Usable Straws! Made of recyclable stainless steel, these straws are equipped with a bendable silicone section giving you 360° degree access to your favorite beverage. The straws and flexible silicone sections tuck neatly into a convenient silicone carry holder. The attached strap makes it convenient to attach it where you need it. They disassemble for cleaning and come with an easy-to-use brush. In this age of helping save our environment, this would be a good time to replace your throw away straws with the Eco Friendly Re-Usable Straws. 2 straws, brush, + carrying case: $9.99.
