Superglue for repair and for crafts (especially crafts involving gluing things at angles to each other, like some of our Sophie et Martin papercraft kits).

Not remotely eco-friendly in its own composition - but helps keep things in use and out of bins through repair, so very Earth-kind overall.

The Gorilla Glue Company is 2 decades own and still family-owned and -operated in Cincinnati, Ohio. The glue was first discovered being used in Indonesia on teak furniture, but consumers soon found it to be incredibly versatile and demand soared.

Warning: I don't think the intended irony of the below video comes across, but it's a great demo of the "keep it out of the bin" power of this glue :-)
