Save the Girls: ‘Save the Girls Touch Screen Purses’ began after the founder, Tami Lange, had two daughters’ phones bite the dust in the same week. One washed and spun, the other was lost on a hike. Her sister-in-law’s solution was to use her bra as a cell pocket even-though she had breast cancer!
Lange decided it was time to stop the madness and she developed a way for women and girls alike to safely, securely and fashionably carry their phones!

David is a lifelong “tinkerer” and inventor with a degree in chemical engineering while Derek is a serial entrepreneur that has inherited his dad’s love of invention and interest in wine production.
Combining their love of science and wine, they ambitiously set out on a two-year journey to solve a 9,000-year-old problem – unpleasant side effects to drinking wine.
After spending an intense year conducting experiments in their kitchen and a local university laboratory, the “Eureka moment” arrived when together they found the perfect way to selectively remove histamines and sulfites in wine without changing the natural taste, color, or quality of the wine.
