Tuesday's Green Tip and Giveaway

GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED A HUGE THANK YOU TO ALL WHO ENTERED!

This weeks green tip. What do you do with all those juice pouches your children inhale, I mean drink? I always felt bad about throwing them out so I resorted to not purchasing them all that often, only for lunches. Well Helen a RN a wife and a mother came up with the best solution.

Have you ever heard that saying "Ones mans trash is another mans treasure". OK I know you have, so now think "One family's trash is another woman's treasure" and you will have Helen from juicybags. Her creations are nothing short of genius. She takes used juice pouches and turns them into bags, purses and wallets! To make it even better she also uses upcycled denim. How cool is that? I just think it is the coolest! Never would I have thought of that!

Helen has an etsy store juicybags, you have to check it out, you will love all of it. In fact you are going to have to visit her store if you want to enter to win this..........



A super cute tote made from Kool Aid Jammers pouches and denim. Perfect for everything from a grocery tote or a beach tote or a large purse. What ever you choose to use this as I can guarantee people will ask where you got it from!

Now before I tell you about the rules to enter to win this super fab bag I have to you about a special project Helen is doing.

Right now, she is planning for her Weekend to End Breast Cancer walk in August. She will be walking 60 km(37.28 miles)in 3 days and needs to raise a minimum of $2000 for the cause. So in order to help her raise the money needed she has set up auction's at Triage From Home! Go look around things are changing all the time! Support Helen and her efforts to help find a cure for Breast Cancer.

Now to the rules of entry...Please leave comment for each entry. ENDS ON THURSDAY MARCH 12th at NOON.
