Bartell's Staff Picks Live Love Pop! PopcornLive Love Pop! Popcorn
John L., our Sr. Category Manager for Food and Beverage (i.e, ‘The Snack Guru’) has picked this delectable popcorn as his snack pick of the month for a few reasons. “It’s fun, flavorful and socially responsible. This popcorn has interesting and great flavors while giving back to charity with every bag purchased.”

Live. Love. Pop is a mission-based brand. Each different flavor of delicious popcorn goes to support a different charity. If you purchase the plain and simple Sea Salt popcorn, your purchase helps support hunger relief efforts. Prefer Lime Fresco to go with your fish tacos? You’re supporting the end of childhood cancer.

Bartell's Staff Picks Method Laundry DetergentMethod Laundry Detergent Pour
Evie M., Digital Marketing Director (and Bartell family member), shares her all time-favorite laundry detergent. “I’ve used this detergent for years and love it! Being a mom, I also love that this detergent works hard to get our (sometimes very dirty) clothes nice and clean. The scents are pleasant without overwhelming our clothes. It’s a win, win, win all around!”

What else is there to love about Method®? Their permanent line of fabric care, personal care and home care products are Cradle to Cradle Certified™ at the silver or gold level. The Cradle to Cradle Certified™ Product Standard guides designers and manufacturers like Method through a continual improvement process that looks at a product through five quality categories — material health, material reutilization, renewable energy and carbon management, water stewardship, and social fairness. This means when you buy a bottle of Method, you’re choosing to support a more eco-friendly option than some alternatives.

Bartell's Staff Picks Baptiste dry shampooBatiste Dry Shampoo
Tori K., Associate Category Manager for our Health & Beauty department, gives her take on the best dry shampoo around town. “On most days, my hair is coated in this stuff! While you can obviously use it to stretch out your days between shampoos, I also like to use it to add grip to an updo, or an extra boost of volume to my fine hair. Plus, all the scents smell delicious and the price is right!”

Tori’s not alone in sharing her love for Batiste®. In fact, you may have heard of this fabulous dry shampoo from Buzzfeed, POPSUGAR., or Glamour. Bottom line: If you’re looking to add some volume to your hair and extend days between washing, this is the dry shampoo you’ve been looking for.

Bartell's Staff Picks Premier Value Pre-Moistened Lens Wipes Microfiber TechnologyPremier Value Pre-Moistened Lens Wipes Microfiber Technology
Bruce B., our Sr. Inventory Analyst, gets real about his practical go-to item for his work and home-office area. “Like Alton Brown, I don’t like uni-taskers. When I sit down to start work, I can clean my glasses, phone, and computer monitor with one wipe and not scratch any of their surfaces.”

While perhaps not as glamorous as some staff picks, this item is just plain and simple a great go-to item when your work area needs some attention. Plus, while we’re faced with COVID, some extra time cleaning our devices is always a good idea.
