We give gifts for so many reasons: to celebrate special occasions, to show someone how much we care. No matter your reason for gift-giving, it makes people feel good; what better way to feel good than giving the gift of a greener future? Future Oxygen produces a line of completely biodegradable ecowear including jewelry, pendants and key chains. Once the wearer is done with them, the pendants can be planted in the ground and grown into flowers. The company is owned by Lansing resident Tina Menzie. Menzie’s mission is to minimize Future Oxygen’s impact on the environment while helping others celebrate important life moments, victories and achievements. A Lansing-based company, Future Oxygen products have gained national exposure and have been featured on FOX 5 San Diego, in the Times Union, as well as various blogs. Portions of Future Oxygen sales benefit local charities, as well as victory gardens around the country. Menzie hopes that more people will learn about her products and give them as gifts or use them to promote their businesses. Future Oxygen items can also be branded with a company logo for a unique giveaway at event. “In Her Shoes” radio, for example, sponsored the 2011 CAWLM Lady Classic golf outing giveaway with Future Oxygen pendants and key chains. The gifts were customized with the show’s signature shoe design and website address. “The Future Oxygen necklace giveaway was a huge hit. They were such a unique gift and really got people talking about our show,” said Tiffany Dowling, publisher of Capital Area Women’s LifeStyle Magazine.
