Digital Detox is an organization dedicated to finding, exploring and creating balance in the digital age. They host events and tech-free retreats where attendees disconnect from technology to reconnect with themselves, others and the world around them. Learn more about their retreats at TheDigitalDetox.org

yerdle is a brand new SF start up that helps people share things with their friends for free. Just like we live in a hype-digital world, we also live in hyper-consumption world. The digital detox and yerdle are ways to combat this and return to a life of value and purpose. yerdle.com
