First up, Hand in Hand, the Philly-based company of husband-and-wife duo Courtney Apple and Bill Glaab.

Whether you’re looking for a new yoga bag that can take you from work to class or a new pair of leggings that give you the stretch you need to get deep into a pose, we’ve got you covered.

Do you ever get that nagging feeling that you haven’t made much impact on the world? If you didn’t win senior class president and your submission to the local poetry writing contest was resoundingly rejected, here’s your chance to be part of something bigger–something, well, record-breaking.
On Sunday, The Nature Conservancy is celebrating Earth Day by hosting picnics around the globe in an attempt to set the world record for the largest outside picnic held across multiple venues. All you have to do to be part of this homage to outdoor eating is show up at Clark Park between noon and 4 pm and BYOP–or be one of the first 100 eager record seekers to arrive in order to get fed by Elevation Burger.
Clark Park, 43rd and Chester Avenue, Sunday at noon. Got it? Have a happy Earth Day.
