Meet Gabriel Beversluis, Inventor of Bag Savr, and Shelby McKee, Inventor of Keysocks on the next Innovation Divaz Radio Show

Bag Savr - Recycle bin and Trash container designed to perfectly fit and store your favorite store's grocery bags; or use it without bags
Up to 100 billion FREE plastic bags are given out every year in the USA. If you are like most people, you already have bags stuffed in a closet or a drawer in your kitchen. Now you can reuse those bags in every room of your house saving money and helping the environment through re-use.
BagSavr+ patent-pending design is the first ergonomically designed bag storage and re-use system made to perfectly fit your free plastic grocery bags and features a built-in pocket which stores up to 10 bags right where you need them. The locking system with tuck groves keep your bags in place and prevent bag gapping.
The BagSavr+TM can hang anywhere with it's handy Hanger Bracket, or serve stand-alone duty in any corner. The "take anywhere" handle makes it ideal for portable cleanups or use in the cabin, boat or camper. There are 100 Billion reasons to save money and save bags with BagSavr+TM
Meet Gabriel Beversluis

Gabriel Beversluis has been working as a pediatric Orthotist since 2004 where he specializes in custom bracing to help disabled children with standing and walking. In his hometown of Grand Rapids, MI., he has developed a reputation as an innovator of orthotics design and production processes. With a passion for designing creative solutions to common problems, Gabriel took on the challenge of designing a product to make good use of the billions of plastic grocery bags given out every year. His goal was to promote re-use and reduced waste by creating a container that everyone can use anywhere. He recognized that promoting widespread reuse will save consumers money, reduce litter, and reduce the quantities of trash bags that will need to be produced, just to throw them away. Gabriel partnered with Products That Work, LLC and together they launched BagSavr+ nationwide in 2013 with many other innovative products to follow.

Keysocks - Knee High No Show Socks
Keysocks - Knee High No Show Socks for Women Say good-bye to unsightly socks and footies that won't stay in place. These sleek no show socks will keep your feet warm and comfortable but won't show when you're wearing heels or flats.
Meet Shelby McKee
In 2009, Keysocks founder Shelby Mckee was getting ready to go to a Cincinnati Bengals football game on a brisk fall Sunday. Wanting to wear flats and with the temperature falling, she realized she needed "no show" socks. Traditional footies always fell off her feet or scrunched up and never provided warmth, so armed with scissors and sheer genius, she cut a hole in her husband's knee-high dress sock and the Keysock was born!

Shelby recruited her two sisters, Stefanie and Christy, and began working to build the first and only no show knee high sock. Keysocks have brought style and comfort to women and girls all over the world desiring to wear flats or heels with pants. Keysocks are the ultimate solutions for keeping your feet comfortable without showing you are wearing socks.

Innovation Divaz Interview Jennifer Perry, the inventor of Jelt Belt

Owner, Jen Perry has worked closely with engineers to develop a stylish belt that is made of 100% recycled materials and is completely metal free. This lightweight, elastic belt is the perfect belt to wear when you need a subtle belt to pair with jeans, as the uniquely designed buckle is completely invisible under tight tops. The colors and design are a fun spin on the 70’s stretch belt, adding a vintage and retro touch to your wardrobe. The colors were also designed to be worn by both men and women. The comfortable elastic fabric forms to your waist and the signature “Jelt Gel” grips to the back of pants keeping everything secure no matter where you are going! Jen is a busy mom of two, which is a big motivation behind her invention of the Jelt. She is constantly on the move and needed a belt to support that.  The Jelt Belt is also great to wear with your snow pants when you are out hitting the slopes or enjoying the outdoors during the summer! Being from Montana, Jen wanted her belt to be shared among the outdoor enthusiasts as well, which is another inspiration behind the lightweight, easy to put on design. And we can’t forget the fact that the Jelt is perfect for traveling! The metal free design will help you pass through security with ease! Each year, Jelt will feature a new charity and give 10% of total profits to support the efforts of these non-profits. The “Jelt” belt is a functional product that fills a need, but it is also fun, fashionable, and current! 
Meet Jennifer Perry 
Jennifer Perry is from Bozeman, Montana and is a mother of two boys. She is a very active member of the community sponsoring local non-profits and participation in charity work. She is also the manager of The Glacier Ridge Ranch, and guest ranch in Trego, Montana. She is a busy mom who is always on the go and loves to be active and outdoors. She wanted a belt that supported all that she does whether it be skiing or taking care of her family which was her inspiration behind the Jelt. She created the Jelt based on her need for a belt that really worked and she designed the Jelt with the goal of helping others who had the same need that she did.

Featured Inventor on the Innovation Divaz Show: Natalie Robbins, Inventor of Litter One

Natalie Robbins, the inventor ofLitter One, has always loved all animals. She would always bring animals home without telling her parents. One of the most common animals she would bring home was cats. Since her family always had cats and Natalie was usually the one bringing them home, her chore was cleaning out the litter box. It wasn't long until she formed a hatred for the chore. When she was about 18 she and her mom were walking through a pet store and saw pine pellets now being used as cat litter. Her dad had just started to work with the same pellets! It's like it was meant to be! She started putting the pellets in old cardboard boxes so she could just throw all of it away at once instead of cleaning all components with soap and water. 4 years and many prototypes later Litter One is born!
Litter One is the 100% biodegradable, completely self-contained, disposable litter system for cats. Each kit includes: litter box, pine pellet litter, scoop, and waste bags. The kit is delivered right to your door ready for use. All you need to do is open the box and set it out in the regular placement of the litter box. The pellets turn to sawdust when the cat urinates. The patented false floor allows for the sawdust to fall through and not worry the consumer about tracking and buildup. The pine pellets completely neutralize the cat urine odor and provide a natural pine scent. When 4-6 weeks has passed, all you do is close up the kit, place it in the recycle/trash bin, and open up the new one that has automatically been shipped to your door.
We are so excited to be interviewing Natalie on the April 22nd show.  If you miss the show LIVE, you can download the podcast at your convenience!

Special Guest on the Innovation Divaz Show - AJ Khubani, Telebrands

"I'm lucky that I found my calling, something that I'm really passionate about. I get excited when I see new products. I get excited when I see something we produce and put on TV and then people respond to it. The key to our success is that everybody in this company gets excited about what we do every single day." ~ TeleBrands CEO & Founder, AJ Khubani
In 1983, fresh out of college (with a whole $20,000 dollars he earned working multiple jobs during school), New Jersey native AJ Khubani was clear that he wanted to take on the Sony corporation. He was hawking a $10 alternative version to the infamous Walkman radio and placed a $7,000 ad in the National Enquirer with hopes of making millions. While breaking even with the ad didn't exactly earn him a house in the Hamptons, it did fuel his curiosity to find more products, in hopes of becoming a massive business success.
After the first few years of slow and steady growth, 1987 would become the year to put TeleBrands on the map. Ambervision Sunglasses were introduced to the world, as the company's first television commercial hit the airwaves. While the spot was a success, the orange lensed glasses launched the company to new heights when in 1989, New York area based Herman's Sporting goods placed the eyewear on their shelves. Sales went thru the roof as TeleBrands not only had their first million dollar hit product, they brought their direct TV marketing success to the retail world.
Fueled by the accomplishments of their on-screen marketing, packaging was needed to house the Ambervision glasses, and a plain white box wasn't going to cut it on retail shelves. After several go rounds with some design ideas, the world renowned As Seen On TV name and logo were born. Yes, it was TeleBrands that was singlehandedly responsible for the branding of today's multi-billion dollar retail category.
Thirty years have passed since that first tabloid ad hit the newsstands and one thing is for certain, AJ Khubani is indeed a massive business success. His company, TeleBrands, is without question the world's leader in television infomercial marketing and their products have sold in the billions of dollars. The likes of famed pitchmen Billy Mays and Anthony Sullivan have been an important part of this journey, as are the members of the company's management staff who have stayed along for the ride for these many years.
Over these past three decades, TeleBrands has given the world some of the most exciting As Seen On TV devices and gadgets: OrGreenic Cookware, Stone Wave, Aluma Wallet, Windshield Wonder, Sticky Buddy, the Olde Brooklyn Lantern, Who Knew Books, and the Pocket Hose are just a few of the many hits in the company's prestigious portfolio. One of the most popular all time products, the Ped Egg (for softening hard calloused feet) was created internally, and after some 50 million units sold to date, there's just no stopping what this northern New Jersey company will come up with next.
To further their amazing growth, TeleBrands has a never-ending open call to would-be inventors, or anyone with a great idea that just might change the world. A countless number of products are submitted for review yearly, while hundreds are chosen for infomercial testing. While it is only a small percentage that make the grade as a hit retail product, a number of inventors have struck it big as their product became yet another legendary TeleBrands success story.
As TeleBrands celebrates its prestigious 30th anniversary in business, its products are now available in over 120 countries around the world. The growth potential seems almost limitless as everyday inventors continue to present their product ideas at a rapid pace. It's a good thing that the young AJ Khubani found his calling some three decades ago. As the need to develop products that solve every day common problems continues onward, his passion for this business remains greater than ever. I think we can speak for everyone at TeleBrands by saying, but wait, there's more - there's a whole lot more to come.

Meet our Featured Inventors of Collar Pop It and Kaaachews!

Paula Delong, Creator of Kaaachews
Meet Paula Dulong, a 50 year old RN from Massachusetts and creator of Kaaachews. Paula has been a stay at home mom since 2002, when she developed a severe latex allergy. One afternoon she was cleaning out her car and found her tissue box squished and dirty under the passenger seat. It had been trampled by every one of the teenagers that she had been driving around town. Paula was tired of throwing them away and that there must be a way to keep them reachable for all the passengers and off the floor. She grabbed a square boutique sized tissue box and made a pattern and prototype. That's howKaaachews were born! She showed it to her family and friends, who thought that it was a great idea, and started going to craft shows to sell them. She now sells Kaaachews all over the U.S., Canada, Australia, London, and recently Saudi Arabia. She did have a "patent pending" on her original design, but since have expanded to include a matching trash/toy/travel necessity caddie in custom fabric sets and tweaked the original design a little to make it easier to attach to the headrest pole of the car.  Paula would like to expand with a line of neutral fabrics on a larger scale that will be available in stores everywhere. She has even applied to "Shark Tank" to see if she can get others to see her vision too.

Debra Curry, Collar Pop It
Debbie Curry spent most of her life as a stay at home mom...with her children now grown her time is now for working out(biking , running & training), spending time with family and developing her product "COLLAR POP IT".
Collar Pop It was created out of a need to keep Debbie's blouse collars popped in the back for a more chic, sophisticated & confident look!

Debbie likes wearing linen blouses as she lives in South Florida but found the collars limp & frumpy, she tried many different materials trying to keep the collar up including taping my neck to the collar, from there she got the idea to create a simple, inexpensive & effective way to take already pieces in your wardrobe & give them a new look. Women who dress well know its all in the details. The details of dressing make the difference between a woman dressed and a woman who has pulled her look together.

The Rein Coat's mantra of helping one pet at a time is working with Rescues and Shelters throughout the US to help highlight pets with fascinating stories. The pets that they will seek out are not the ones that have already been proclaimed as the media darlings that everyone is talking about. Rein, and The Rein Coat, are searching for misfortunate pets that might have otherwise slipped through the cracks. Each week Rein, and The Rein Coat, will be highlighting Rein Drop’s Rescue of the Week by sending him/her a Rein Coat to help ease the transition to his forever home and spotlight his story throughout social media to encourage more people to adopt and help their local shelters and rescues. The Rein Coat will also function as a conduit to connect you, the public, to this pet, this shelter or this pet’s shelter-mates if you choose to donate something to each week’s cause. We hope that you will share the stories of Rein Drop’s Rescues with your friends and followers each week to help us celebrate our victories and help us to raise awareness and change the lives of animals, one pet at a time.
