Happy New Year to you all! Very rarely do we get the opportunity of a true fresh start, but the new year is as good a time as any. A whole brand new year! A chance to take a moment and reflect upon how far you’ve come in the past year, and your goals for the upcoming year.
One of the scariest things I did in 2017 was start the Terra Vitae blog. It’s been a very rewarding experience to delve into the world of sustainable and ethical fashion, and I hope it has been enriching for you, too. I have already learned so much, and I know much more is to come.
With my heart full of gratitude, I’ve decided to do a giveaway of my favorite sustainable, ethical, and organic goodies for two lucky Terra Vitae followers. You can enter the giveaway at the bottom of the blog post. The giveaway is open only to U.S. residents. International entries will not be accepted. This giveaway is not sponsored by any brand or company. It’s simply a collection of my favorite products that embody sustainable and ethical values, curated by me for you. Now on to a description of the giveaway prizes!
Fashion Revolution Fanzine 002: Loved Clothes Last ~ I am SUPER excited to include the Loved Clothes Last fanzine as part of the giveaway. This is the most creative, enlightening, and honest fashion magazine you will read this year. Put down Vogue, pick up Loved Clothes Last. The Loved Clothes Last issue explores the issues of waste and over consumption in the fashion industry, with suggestions on how to reduce, reuse, and recycle. This fanzine is particularly engaging if you haven’t been exposed to the true impact the fashion industry has on the planet. Each winner will receive one physical copy of the Loved Clothes Last fanzine.
Joco Glass Cup (Red) ~ Reusable glass cup for coffee or tea for daily use. The cup is made from high quality, non-porous borosilicate glass, meaning you won’t be tasting any plastic in your next hot cup ‘o Joe. Microwave and dishwasher safe. Remember to take it with you to use on your next trip to Peets/Starbucks/Dunkin/etc! Each winner will receive one 8 oz red Joco glass cup.
Rewined Candle ~ Rewined is a Charleston, SC based company that makes soy candles. The best part (aside from, of course, the amazing scents) is that the candles are actually in re-purposed wine bottles. Such a creative solution to get a little bit more reuse out of a glass bottle. Plus, each premium natural soy wax candle’s scent is crafted to remind you of wine. Yum! Each winner will receive one Rewined Candle. #reduce #reuse #recycle
Pacifica Nail Polish ~ Two beautiful, nontoxic nail polish colors for you to enjoy year round. The two colors are: Red Red Wine and Desert Princess. I have & love Pacifica nail polish, and it’s some of the best nontoxic polish out there. It’s vegan, cruelty-free (so never tested on our furry friends!), and free from parabens, phthalates (dibutyl phthalate), toluene, xylene, camphor, formaldehyde, resin, and animals. Each winner will receive two Pacifica nail polish bottles (one Red Red Wine and one Desert Princess).
Kopari Coconut Melt ~ I’m obsessed with Kopari’s Coconut Melt. You can read my full blog post on the product here, but essentially you can use coconut oil from head to toe. My favorite uses for it include using it as a hair mask, moisturizer after shaving, and for extending the life of a spray tan. Each winner will receive one Kopari Coconut Melt, 2.5 oz.
Lavanila, The Healthy Deodorant ~ Have you heard about the dangers of using a deodorant that contains aluminum? Lavanila has the solution to keep you smelling clean – without the toxins. The self-prescribed “healthy deodorant” is free of aluminum, parabens, and propylene glycol. Each winner will receive one The Healthy Deodorant (pure vanilla).
Origins Skin Care Set ~ I love love Origins skin care, especially their face masks. The “Bring out the best in your skin” starters set includes 3 pieces: Modern Friction™ Nature’s gentle dermabrasion, United State™ Balancing tonic, and GinZing™ Energy boosting moisturizer. Each winner will win one Skin Starters set.
Athleta or Amour Vert Tote Bag ~ The giveaway is rounded out with a tote bag. These bags can be used for a myriad of things including grocery shopping, to and from the gym, or even as overnight bags. One winner will receive an Athleta tote bag, the other winner will receive an Amour Vert tote bag.
