Back-to-School Giveaway

With surprising frequency, an email will pop into my inbox with some sort of offer for me to host a giveaway or a request to do a guest post or something else along those lines. Up until this point, I've politely declined for a number of reasons. Mostly it's been because the fit hasn't been quite right. I don't really have any interest in industrial plastic replacements and I'm guessing that you don't either.

But, when an opportunity to partner up with  Annie's Homegrown, Seventh Generation, Honest Tea, and Stonyfield Farm presented itself, I couldn't really come up with a reason to say "no." These are all brands that I already use and love and companies that, for the most part, I feel are pretty reputable. Win-win, I thought. So after a little blurb about a back-to-school promotion that they are offering, you'll have the opportunity to enter a giveaway for a pretty cool lunch sack. Read on.



Annie’s Homegrown, Stonyfield YoKids, Honest Kids and Seventh Generation have teamed up to help families be more sustainable in their lunch time choices this back-to-school season by offering a free Kids Konserve reusable lunch sack with the purchase of participating products July 1, 2011 through September 30, 2011.

You are invited to visit their promotional website, print out the form, then mail it, along with proof of purchase of all four brands, to receive your free lunch sack.
 
The Environmental Protection Agency estimates that of the more than 3,960,000 tons of plastic bags, sacks and wraps produced annually, 90 percent are discarded and end up in landfills or oceans. Kids Konserve lunch sacks are made from recycled cotton and they can be part of the solution to eliminating that plastic bag waste.

As part of this promotion, I have been given 5 Kids Konserve lunch sacks (full of coupons for the four sponsoring brands) to give away to five A Life Sustained readers. Just leave a comment on this post for your chance to be entered into the drawing to win.

Comments will be closed and the five winners will be chosen on August 27.
Good luck and thanks for playing along!


And the lucky winners are:


Karen
"We try to be green in our everyday life as well and what a great idea vs. all the thrown away ziploc bags etc. I live in IOWA too!!! It's refreshing to see another MIDWESTERN!!!"


Christina G.
"We love packing snacks in the car - especially when we remember to do so! This would help keep us organized and stocked up. Thanks for the giveaway!"


Allison

Grace

And for everyone else, remember you can still get a free lunch sack; all you have to do is save your proof-of-purchases, fill out the form, and send it all in before September 30!

  5. I am really trying to conserve and be more green this year. We purchased reusable sandwich and snack bags to use instead of plastic baggies and this lunch sack would be the perfect compliment to them. Pick me! Pick me!
