We know that Lifetime tables and chairs get used for A LOT of different reasons.  And, one of the most popular uses for our tables is for a craft table.  It's easy to see why. They are stain resistant and easy to clean -  so no need to worry about spilled paint, dripping hot glue guns, or bleeding stamps.  They are lightweight and a easy to transport to craft/scrapbooking parties.  Plus, they also come in a variety of sizes and even adjustable height styles to fit any craft space. If you follow our blog regularly, you know we LOVE giveaways! So, in honor of National Scrapbooking Day which is this Saturday, May 5, we've teamed up with the Creating Keepsakes magazine blog team to celebrate one of the most popular uses of our tables and give scrapbookers the ultimate National Scrapbo...

This past Sunday afternoon I was able to skip out of church a little early to do a radio interview with our friends at 96.5 FM in Florida. Ken and Jared, father and son, do a weekly home improvement show called "In the House" where they invite “experts” in various categories to come talk about products to improve your home. As part of this interview, they are giving away a Lifetime 7'x7' Storage Shed model 60042. This was the third show of this type that I have done since I’ve been here at Lifetime. I keep a tally of the number of times I say “um” or “like” or some other filler word. This time I only counted six which was a big improvement. I have to admit it is fun talking about something I am so passionate about. I am very content working out in the garden, and with the great weath... More

Earth Day is the time to reflect on that popular mantra: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. Lifetime composters are an ideal way to put this popular mantra into practice. So just in time for your Earth Day celebration, we are offering $20 off the regular price of any Lifetime Composter in the Lifetime Online Store. With a Lifetime Composter, you can reduce your yard clippings and vegetable waste from kitchen scraps by recycling those ingredients into a rich, nutritious fertilizer that you can reuse in your gardens.

It's about that time. Time to start planning your garden and planting in your Lifetime Raised Garden Beds. Here in Utah the weather has been unseasonably warm. I am still being careful, however, and not planting too early... a surprise snow storm in June is not that unheard of here. Have you heard about the new Plant Hardiness map from the FDA? The 2012 Plant Hardiness Zone Map has a few surprises for our nation’s gardeners. Due to the warming trend in our climate lately, northerners may be able to successfully grow plants they weren't able to grow before. So exactly what is the Plant Hardiness Zone Map?  If you’ve ever bought a packet of seeds, you’ve seen it. It's the little multi-colored map on the back of your vegetable or flower packet. Different colored zones on that map inform you of what num... More

As I promised in previous posts, it’s time to unleash a brand-spanking-new sit-on-top kayak!  This season we’ve introduced our Lifetime Tamarack 120 and the Lifetime Tamarack 120 Angler and I don’t think you’ll be disappointed! The Lifetime Tamarack 120 comes in a beautiful vibrant red with tons of added features like shock cords, carry handles, storage deck and a sealed hatch!  This kayak also features our new folding seat back!  It folds up when you’re using it to give your back the support it needs and then, at the end of the day, it completely folds down for transport.  What more could you ask for? But wait, there’s more! We’ve specially designed this kayak to be fast, track well and be extremely stable, so no matter where your paddle adventure leads... More

Here's the deal.  We're always telling you how tough our products are.  Sometimes we use fancy industry lingo like "double-wall high density polyethylene panels"  or  "exceeds BIFMA standards".  I'll be the first to admit, that can get more than a little boring -- even for me.  It's much more interesting and believable to hear real customer experiences.   Know what?  We get tired of doing all the talking so we love hearing your stories about our products.  In fact, even we've been amazed with some of the recent "tough" stories our customers have shared with us.Just this week, Michelle and Wayne T. of Granby, MA shared some fantastic photos of their Lifetime 65-Gallon Composter that survived a bear attack!  Yes, I said BEAR.  Yikes!  "My wife and I recently pur...

Ambassador Huntsman Tours Lifetime China Facility and EcoHouse
Last week, I had the honor of traveling to Xiamen, China, to show our factory and new EcoHousing Initiative to Jon Huntsman Jr., previous governor of Utah and current Ambassador to China. The tour of our Xiamen facility was well organized and I could not be more pleased with the way things turned out. A bit of history. In 2008, we opened a wholly-owned and operated facility in Xiamen, China. This means we have tight control over product quality. This is a huge distinction and big advantage over imitation "Lifetime" products made in China by other companies. By having our own manufacturing facility overseas, we can be more globally competitive and more effectively and profitably manage our international sales and distribution to the more than 52 countries we sell products to worldwide. Being wholly-owned also means the facili...
