Person10 Handmade Organic Tank Top Giveaway

For this week’s giveaway, Sylvia from Person10 Etsy Shop is donating a $25 gift certificate to be used on one of her handmade, organic workout tanks.  I’m so excited because I know you gals are gonna love these!

But before I get into why I love her shirts and how wonderful she is for giving back to her community, I have to let you in on the true meaning behind the name Person10-

Origin of the Company Name-

“For every nine people who denounce innovation, only one will encourage it… For every nine people who do things the way they have always been done, only one will ever wonder if there is a better way. For every nine people who stand in line in front of a locked building, only one will ever come around and check the back door.

Our progress as a species rests squarely on the shoulders of that tenth person. The nine are satisfied with things they are told are valuable. Person 10 determines for himself what has value.” – Za Rinpoche and Ashley Nebelsieck, in The Backdoor to Enlightenment

Isn’t that awesome?  And so right up my alley!

Now more about her amazing tanks:

Sylvia designs and hand makes all the products at Person10.  She specializes in tank tops, with a little added flair, for active moms and women.  She use two types of fabric in her shop, catering to two different needs: organic cotton for the eco-friendly and sweat wicking for the hard-core running/gym enthusiast.

The organic cotton comes in softer, more subtle colors and is ridiculously soft!  The sweat wicking is a lighter fabric which absorbs sweat off of your body and dries at lightening speed.  Wear sweat wicking during hot yoga, marathons, or long-distance runs.

Sylvia sews all of her products and her partner (graphic designer and artist) silk screens on a custom quote or image.  Right now, they have several quotes related to working out and fitness- some motivational, some funny- ALL inspiring and positive!  And if that’s not enough to get you over to her etsy shop– Person10 donates 20% of all sales to a local Food for Kids Backpack Program.

Check these out:

And my favorite:

Is this motherhood or what?

A big THANK YOU to Sylvia from Person10!  Please take the time to visit her Etsy shop, her blog, and her Facebook page to learn more about her success in making shirts that make changes- 100% handmade! Make a purchase, make a difference.

To have a chance at winning the $25 gift certificate from Person10, just leave me a comment below or on my Facebook page under the Person10 giveaway link.  Easy! Giveaway open until Friday April 13th, 11:59 pm EST.  Winners selected through and notified through email.  Winners will be notified by email within 5 days after the entry deadline date.  Winners must respond within 5 days or a new winner will be selected.  Contest open to USA and Canada.

Bum Boosa® Giveaway

It’s a great day for a giveaway!  I’ve decided to start doing giveaways on my blog so I can share with my readers the kinds of products I use and love!

Today I’m excited to introduce you to a line of natural baby wipes from Bum Boosa®.  When it comes to your baby, you want nothing but the best and you wouldn’t mind helping out the environment as well.  Am I right?  Well then, let me tell you a little about a product I found and fell in love with.  Bum Boosa® Bamboo Products are made of renewable, sustainable bamboo in combination with natural ingredients for biodegradable and natural baby wipes, soothing and natural diaper rash ointment, soft and eco-luxurious bathroom tissue, and other eco-friendly products soon to join the marketplace.

Most diaper wipes on store shelves today are made from petroleum-derived plastic.  This drives me absolutely insane.  As a mother to two young children, I use baby wipes every single day.  Not just for diapering (we are out of that stage for now), but for wiping little hands and faces, and even their toys.  The last thing I want to be doing is exposing them to more chemicals on a daily basis.

Bum Boosa’s® baby wipes are:

  • Award Winning;
  • A non-synthetic, tree-free product;
  • Derived from a renewable & sustainable bio-based material;
  • Contain plant-based ingredients including organic aloe vera, calendula and 100% natural scent;
  • Are alcohol free, Paraben-free, and Sulfate-free;
  • A USDA Certified Bio preferred product;
  • Made in the USA at a 100% wind powered facility

Today’s giveaway is for the Bum Boosa® Eco-Gift Bag: 

Includes (3) packages each of 80 count Bamboo wipes, (1) 4 ounce container of diaper rash ointment, (1) 10 ml bottle of pure grade Bulgarian Lavender Essential Oil with a recipe card for making your own natural baby skin care products.

A big THANK YOU to Sonja- a fellow mom on a mission, President and co-founder of Bum Boosa® Bamboo Products.  Please take the time to visit the Bum Boosa® site to learn more about her success in creating safer, gentler, more eco-friendly baby products.

To have a chance at winning the Bum Boosa® Eco-Gift Bag, just leave me a comment below or on my Facebook page under the Bum Boosa® giveaway link.  Easy!  Giveaway open until Friday March 30, 11:59 pm EST.  Winner announced on Monday.

Have a great day!
