In honor of Earth Day which is on the 22nd, I had planned several really good Earth Day giveaways but I never dreamed of all the responses I would get and I must admit I was floored that so many companies are actually hard at work to make our planet as "green" as possible and to help the planet be as polluted as we are constantly being told. I think alot of companies are in the same boat as we are in that they don't want anything bad to happen to us either. One such company is called the Ultimate Green Store and they have sent me a beautiful Dayna Decker Chandel Candle in the scent called Bambusseae, which I have to confess, I have never heard of that fragrance so I was very intrigued when I got it.
I have to admit it make a very beautiful candle and I really wanted to light if up right away and just pretend that life was just as perfect and but then I stopped myself and remembered that both mine and Mike's birthday's are coming up in May so I decided to wait and make it a fabulous celebration! And that is saying alot about me because I am so excited to get new things especially older items that belong to my parents and grandparents. The gold pillar of the candle is what makes it seem like a luxury piece that needs to be kept in mint condition. I know one day I will have to break down and burn it because the suspense of what it might smell like will get the better of me!
Yes, you heard me right, bamboo sheets! How cool is that! And they are 100% Viscose from Bamboo. Low impact dyes are used in the coloring of these sheets, meaning the lowest possible environmental impact. The sheets have also passed Oeko-Tex certification.
I was very surprised and happy to learn that there are more companies and stores out there than you think there are who are trying to make a difference but if we don't all jump in this together, we won't have as much of an impact if we all stick together. Oh, and I found this coupon good for shipping on bedding products while I was looking around in case anyone needed any they might could use the money that they saved on something else!
They also have a Bridal Registry for those of you who are looking to get married and want to register gifts at all your favorite stores. I highly recommend using this shop because you will get good quality and it is green, natural, organic and will make you and this wonderful planet we live a much prettier and cleaner one to pass along to our children and grandchildren!
