Last week when the Better Back to School Brigade kicked off with our ten top tips for a better back to school, waste-free lunches were the hot topic — especially among the families with young kids! So we dedicated a bonus blog to getting started and promised to kickstart one lucky family into litterless lunch blissdom, with a $200 waste-free lunch giveaway (enter until September 2).
This week the Better Back To School Brigade is taking on green school supplies — and it's time to show the big kids some love. Terra 20 over this amazing prize pack, which has been sitting on my desk all week and has the whole office drooling. Your teenagers are going to love this. But they might have to arm wrestle you for it!
Here's what's up for grabs in this Better Back To School giveaway:
House of Marley Headphones ($200): Marley products are sustainably crafted from earth-friendly materials including our exclusive REWIND™ fabric, cotton and canvas textiles, recycled plastics, recyclable metals, bamboo and Forest Stewardship Council-certified woods. Every product is soulfully designed and engineered to perform at the highest level. It doesn't hurt that these are also beautiful!
Matt & Nat Ipad Case ($75): MATT & NAT's beautiful vegan Ipad case is informed by the company's values of love, authenticity and responsibility. They don't like hurting animals and they care about the planet! A mandate to use eco/recycled/upcycled materials wherever possible has led to recycling plastic bottles for linings, the use of cork and secret future plans to upcycle bicycle tires. Of course, the result is stunning!
Ecojot Notebook ($25): Ecojot creates eco-friendly stationery products that feature whimsical and inspirational designs. Their love for paper, the planet and art has enabled them to create a sustainable brand available in hundreds of locations around the world. The ecojot GIVE Program provides a workbook and pen to children in need around the world with every sale of a Jumbo Journal.
Barefoot Venus Lip Fable ($7.50): You're lips are one of the most important places to keep clear of the dirty dozen chemicals and toxins found in many beauty products. Soothe and moisturize lips with this highly emollient lip healer. Jojoba seed oil, shea butter fruit, meadowfoam oil and grape seed oil seriously helps heal dryness and relieve roughness safely and beautifully!
