Good morning everyone. I’m happy to announce the winner of my first giveaway today. Thank you to everyone who entered! And an even bigger thank you to bobble for offering to giveaway one of their stylish bottles!
Unfortunately there can only be one winner. But for those of you who didn’t win and would still like to purchase a bobble check out this page to see which stores in your neighborhood sell them. We even have lots of stores selling them in Austria, so I’m sure you will have no problem at all finding one near you
Thank you also for your “environmentally -friendly living” ideas. I loved reading what you do to save our planet. There really is so much everyone can do. Here’s a list of some of my favorites.
Reuse and recycle.
Recycling really isn’t that difficult. At home we have separate bins for plastic, paper, aluminum, glass and food waste. It might seem like we have lots of bins standing around the house, but truth is if you think of some kind of system it is doable! Better than recycling though, is to avoid buying huge amounts of packaged products in the first place.
Reusing snack bags is also a great idea. Another great thing to do, if you workout at the gym is to bring your own towel instead of using the paper towels that the gym provides! A lot of you also bring re-usable shopping bags to the grocery store
Where to shop?
A few of you also said that you like going to farmer’s markets to buy local produce there. This is something that I’d really like to do more often.
Some of you also buy second-hand clothes at thrift stores. This is increasing in popularity as there are so many hidden treasures that you can find there!
In the home!
I like the idea of taking short showers and not leaving the water running when you don’t need it, for instance whilst brushing your teeth. Also, turning off the lights when you don’t need them is a big electricity-saver (my dad’s a big fan!) Many of you also said that instead of using the AC you prefer using fresh air or fans instead.
AND THE WINNER IS:
Congratulations Jennifer! I will you email you in the next couple of hours!
Thanks again to everyone else who entered
