so i started this little spot on the interwebs back in april.. it has taken me awhile but slowly and surely i have made it to 100 posts as of riiiiight now.

you guys know i am really into going green, reusing thangs, eliminating waste where possible.. right? right.  i even work for a company that prides itself in being energy efficient, we are certified with several organizations that are geared toward energy efficiency!  you may remember when i participated in the simple life challenge and for the whole month of may i worked on changing all my habits to be a less wasteful type of gal.  this included, but was not limited to:

  • walking places instead of driving
  • letting my hands air dry instead of using paper towels
  • bringing washable dishes and utensils to work
  • investing in tupperware rather than using ziplock bags
  • changing out my light bulbs to the energy saving type
  • never buying coffee, always brewing my own
  • not eating out
  • recycling my face off

annnd.. reusing my water bottle instead of utilizing plastic ones.. that is what brings me to my giveaway!

i want to introduce you all to a fabulous company, Greensender.  i first saw Greensender in a fitness mag and immediately had to check it out.  they are all about eco friendliness and have mass amounts of gear rep your pride in loving on our environment.

Greensender’s Mission Statement

Everyone is aware of the environmental challenges that we collectively face. And generally, people want to get involved, do their part and help begin to arrest the damage that we are doing to our planet. But, for many reasons, most of us still do very little or nothing at all.

Greensender exists to help bridge that gap between good intentions and taking action. Using things like reusable bags and bottles is very important and modifying our collective usage of these items can have a substantial, positive impact. However, the items in a Greensender box can also fill the larger role of serving as a reminder to us to rethink our behaviors and further consider the impact of the choices that we make; whether they be how we carry our groceries or how we cast our vote.

No one can do everything today. And no one can do it by themselves. But, we all have the responsibility do something. So, let’s get started.

1percent

  • The type of products chosen for “this box” were because they are all items which are used by many people everyday and as a result are often taken for granted. And as a result, the negative environmental impact of producing and disposing of these everyday items is taken for granted. In addition to physically reducing consumption, it is their hope that when people begin to use these products, they are reminded of the need to consume less and that will lead to even greater action.
  • They chose the brands of product based on their excellent environmental credentials as well as their overall quality and style.
  • They make sacrifices in order to insure that the products they sell and the business practices they employ are all environmentally friendly. They recycle aggressively. They use all recycled and non-toxic products, when available. They minimize unnecessary waste (eg — no bags, packing material, exterior boxes, etc. in the packaging of Greensender products). They select vendors and partners based upon their environmental credentials. They turn off lights and electronics when not in use. And in their personal lives they have made similar commitments.
  • Mike Aaron is the founder and President of Greensender, LLC. His professional background is in advertising, branding, corporate communications and consulting. He most recently worked at a Fortune 100 company and served as Vice President of Advertising. Mike lives with his wife and two sons in Maplewood, NJ.

Greensender is donating a personalized reusable aluminum SIGG bottle to one lucky reader of meals & moves!

Big-SIGG-Group-2

 a little bit about these bottles:

  • SIGG is the number one brand of reusable water bottles in the world.
  • SWISS QUALITY: Designed and manufactured to the 100 year old exacting standards of this Swiss company.
  • DURABLE: Each bottle is extruded out of a single piece of aluminum; resulting in a seamless construction that provides leak-proof performance and incredible durability.
  • NON-TOXIC: The SIGG bottle lining is a non-toxic coating baked on to the interior walls of the bottle. it is flexible and as a result, crack-resistant for the very, very long life of the bottle. This lining ensures that your beverage never comes in contact with any metals or plastics. It is 100% free of Bisphenol A (BPA), pthlates or any other harmful chemical.
  • TASTE NEUTRAL: The non-toxic lining is taste-neutral — so your drink tastes like yor drink, not your bottle.

Quite simply, this is the finest bottle in the world.
