Can you believe it's Friday already? And the last day of my virtual anniversary party. :( I hate for it to end but if you're a regular Mindful Momma reader, you know that I host giveaways from time to time when I find a particularly cool new product that I just have to tell you about! In fact, I've got a couple of good ones in the pipeline right now...
When I started this blog (way back in 2006!!), my goal was to try to make sense out of the confusing information about green and healthy living and to share what I learned with others. Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine that 4 years later, my blog would still be active and I would be a published author to boot! The process of writing Practically Green was intense, fascinating, frustrating and rewarding all at once. I'm incredibly thankful that I had the opportunity! My wish for the book was that just about anyone could pick it up and find something inspiring and useful in it. I hope I achieved that goal!
Although the book is meant for anyone, today's prize does have a certain appeal to the ladies. Sorry guys - I didn't intend to leave you out but when LunaPads offered up a prize, I just couldn't resist!! But before I tell you about the prize I have a funny story to tell. Back in the late 1980's my crunchy, little sister gave me some reusable menstrual pads as a gift. For some reason I just couldn't quite go there - so I used them to polish my shoes. (They worked quite well for that purpose - I still have them - LOL!)
Nowadays I'm much more open-minded to reusables of all sorts - including pads. And the way Lunapads does pads is much better than it used to be (no safety pins!) Their 2 part system includes a pad base with wings that fastens underneath and a fleece liner insert to absorb the flow. The designs are much cooler-looking too. They come in a variety of colors and fabrics - in organic or regular cotton. Are you intrigued??
LunaPads is giving away a Pads & Pantyliners Intro Kit to one Mindful Momma reader! It has everything you need to get started so you can ditch the disposables forever! Just for kicks I'm adding a copy of my book Practically Green: Your Guide to Ecofriendly Decision-Making to the mix.
