As parents of children with disabilities I liked to support companies that are known to be proactive about providing job opportunities for the disabled. One company that we'd like to highlight is Noblo. This company based in Eatontown NJ was founded after the owners saw a terrible accident involving a beach umbrella. These moms developed a simple but effective way to anchor your beach umbrella giving them sun protection for their children without the worry of the umbrella blowing away.
Noblo retails for a very reasonable $14.99 and is packaged by CVR, a local non-profit that hires the mentally and physically handicapped. It's easy to use and was invented by moms who know the difficulty of navigating a day at the beach with small children! For each bag sold $.05 is donated to the United States Lifesaving Association. This product is a win-win all the way around!
The Noblo is available in pretty beach colors of yellow, pink, turquoise, blue (shown above), black and bright green--one of which is sure to match or coordinate with your beach umbrella.
