As I've watched the amount of trash we throw out each week shrink; and the amount we recycle each week grow, I've thought a lot about my own personal contributions to both landfill and recycling center. I've learned that taking the time to recycle as much as possible requires a little extra effort if you live in a place where they don't make it easy peasy for you (you Pacific Northwesters have it soooo good!). But you know what? It feels really good to take a few extra minutes to ensure a contribution to this good cause. Keep in mind that traditional recycling isn't the only way we can help our planet--you can read more about it here in a "recycled" post about easy ways to be more "green" :)
So readers, since it is Earth Week and we are already on the subject of improving our earth, how about a little giveaway along those same lines? The Terra Tee Project has been kind enough to offer one reader my favorite t-shirt from their collection--the Earth Tee ($65 value). I love a pretty li'l graphic tee and this eco-friendly version is not only beautiful, but it's a tee you can feel good about wearing for all sorts of reasons.
First, the tee is made from 100% organic cotton farmed in the USA. It is also manufactured here in a sweat-shop-free environment. There's something you can feel good about! Terra Collections also uses low-impact, eco-friendly dyes as well as water-based inks to create their tees. As an added bonus, 15% of your purchase goes to the environmental charity of your choice. Sweet! If you can't wait until the end of this giveaway
So what do you say, shall we get this Earth Week giveaway started? Oh, and while you're leaving a comment, feel free to share any easy tips or ideas you may have about being more eco-conscious or recycling in general. It's not necessary to leave an idea or tip to enter the giveaway, but it would be much appreciated :) Thanks!
