October Giveaway!

Happy October everyone!


I have a fabulous giveaway for you this month but first of all, I wanted to say that I was totally floored with the enthusiastic response to last month's giveaway and the many innovative tips you shared for making your kitchen a more eco-friendly place. From making your own dishwasher detergent to composting kitchen scraps, from making your kids' lunch bags with recycled (parade!) materials to washing and re-using ziplock bags, from avoiding plastic food packaging by making your own snacks to using cloth instead of paper towels... the list went on and on. You guys are amazing!!! Sometimes I feel kind of hopeless when I hear the news and look around at what's happening in this world, but seeing your comments streaming-in all through the month filled me with hope and renewed determination, so thank you! If you missed them and want to get inspired to green-up your own kitchen, be sure to have a read-through the comments on this link.

Without further ado, the winner of the September giveaway is Whitney, who makes her very own dishwasher detergent! Congrats Whitney and enjoy your lovely Bee's Wraps :-)

Now planting our feet firmly into October. My giveaway is from the Oh so stylish Oh Little Rabbit, a West Coast-based company that creates gorgeous, whimsical handmade housewares. Jason and Cara, the creators at Oh Little Rabbit, are generously giving away this gigantic screen-printed recycled cotton tote bag...


as well as this adorable set of 4 clucky organic cotton table napkins....


to one lucky Kitchen Vignettes reader!!

You'll definitely want to check out these guys' creations on their Etsy page. They make their products with organic or recycled cotton and non-toxic water-based inks. And the best part is their designs are absolutely magical. I'm about to place an order with them myself and can barely decide what to get because I find every single thing in their online store completely irresistible!! Plus they now make aprons and re-usable lunch bags, and even the cutest ever organic baby onesies. Ahhhh. Now I know where I am getting most of my Christmas presents this year. 

So to enter this month's giveaway, I'm going to try something new here with Rafflecopter which should make entering the giveaway easier for you, and drawing a winner easier for me. Let's see how this thing goes...  hopefully it works!!

  27. how am i environmentally friendly in the kitchen? ok, get a cup of coffee, this is going to take time: i only shop at the farmer's market, which is less than a mile away. my carbon footprint is the size of a toddler's bootie. i only have to take out the recycling once every two weeks, because i rarely use anything packaged. it's mostly wine bottles in there ;) i only use biodegradable detergents. most of what i buy/own is vintage/antique/used/upcycled. when i needed a new kitchen cabinet, instead of going to ikea (shudder) i had a cabinet maker make one using reclaimed wood and found hardware. i am a largely unplugged kitchen. make bread by hand, LOVE my mortar and pestle. oh my, i could go on!

    ps, Aube, let me know what you think of that whole wheat cake. send me your email address and i will send you a pdf of the original recipe!
