Endangered-Species Erasers

Plus a genius trade-in deal on denim at Barneys, and why you need spherical ice cubes

ANIMAL COLLECTIVE: Rainbow-hued PVC-free erasers raise awareness about endangered species they represent: rhinos, polar bears, and gorillas. The 2”-high animals are $12 at Kate’s Paperie; 72 Spring Street near Crosby Street; 212-9410-9816.

THEM BLUES: Through the end of the month, bring in your used – gently or otherwise – jeans to Barneys and Barneys Co-op, and you’ll receive 20% off the purchase of your next pair. Kind of like a car trade-in, except with high-end denim. More information here.

RIGHT ROUND: Spherical ice (made with these trays available at the MoMA Store) isn’t just a gimmick (no matter how nifty-looking): the shape means that it melts more slowly than a cube, so you’re almost incapable of drowning your Glenfiddich. These things matter, people. $16 at the MoMA Store, 44 West 53 Street near Fifth Avenue, 212-767-1050.
