Santa Barbara, CA (March 17, 2020) – FluidStance, the company behind numerous award-winning eco-friendly and health-promoting balance boards, today officially announces the launch of Slope: its first ergonomic personal desktop whiteboard designed to reduce paper waste and modernize your desk setup. Slope is a sleek, multi-purpose whiteboard made completely of steel – Earth’s most recycled material with the ability to be reused infinitely – and powder-coated using a low emissions process. All of Slope’s production is done right here in the U.S.
When was the last time you thought about the impact of the sticky notes you use every day? With some 15 billion trees being cut down and approximately 50 billion paper sticky notes made each year, FluidStance’s Slope is designed with a primary goal of encouraging consumers to ditch disposable paper notes and preserve the planet’s resources while streamlining their work experience. Inspired by an open, groomed ski run, Slope offers a gentle angle for writing, and its raised surface acts as the optimal storage space for a keyboard underneath. Slope’s premium dry-erase surface was developed through a low-emissions powder coating process near FluidStance’s warehouse in Santa Barbara, California, meaning the product is 100% sourced, assembled and distributed in the USA. In fact, each Slope travels only some 30 miles before being shipped out to FluidStance’s customers, drastically cutting down on any carbon emissions associated with the transportation process.
“Riding on my bike for miles and hiking up mountains has always fueled my desire to infuse nature’s splendor into our products,” said Joel Heath, founder and CEO of FluidStance. “Slope’s design brings nature’s wonderment indoors and addresses the very real issue of paper waste impacting our planet by transforming our everyday office habits. We couldn’t be more excited to bring our consumers a product that is ergonomic, locally produced and sustainable.”
Further highlighting FluidStance’s dedication to crafting products that implement simple design to achieve an impactful goal, Slope features a phone dock that allows the perfect angle of view, with a dedicated space for charging cables, dry-erase markers and other tools. The locally produced personal desktop whiteboard is officially available for purchase at www.fluidstance.com for $59.
FluidStance has also made a commitment to plant one tree for every Slope sold in a bid to do its part in rebuilding the environment. For more information about FluidStance or to view its entire product line, visit www.fluidstance.com.
