A gift from us, 50% off coupons for gifts you’ll love to give

twoofuscrppedWe’re so excited to announce the Celebrate Green coupon sheet, two pages of 50% off offers from online stores we love.

You’ll have to hurry if you’re interested though, because the offers are limited to stock on hand and the stores are under no obligation to substitute for the items listed.

All those on these sheets meet one or more of our criteria for “green”–recycled or repurposed, made by people who are paid a fair wage, made of sustainable/organic materials, and/or, the company makes a real contribution to their communities.

Offering these fabulous deals are:
Juicy Bags
Donna Thomas and Shaklee
A Punkin Card Company

Here’s a link to where you can download the PDF, and remember there are two pages to the PDF. Don’t forget to scroll to see all the bargains!

We have a winner and thanks to all

twoofuscrppedThank you to everyone who participated in our contest to win a copy of Celebrate Green! and a bunch of other goodies. The winner was Leslie C whose name was chosen impartially via

It was inspiring to read what everyone wrote about how they plan to put a bit more eco into their holidays this year.

As we say, it’s not one person doing everything, it’s all of us doing small things, that makes a huge difference.

Lots of fun on our site

twoofuscrppedIf you’ve been waiting to purchase Celebrate Green! until we get closer to the holidays, you might want to do it now.

As of today, until supplies run out, when you buy the book, you will be able to take your choice of one jar of the most delicious shea butter you’ve ever put on from Vintage Body Spa or a box of melt-in-your-mouth truffles from Sjaaks. Pay nothing but shipping for the shea butter and one penny plus shipping for the chocolates. Wow, what decision!

And tah-dah, the finalists in our baby onesie/t-shirt contest have been selected. You can vote by going here. Nothing to join or sign up for. We’d just love to see you vote for your favorite among the cutest phrases you ever read. We had lots of great ideas come in and Gwen, from Little Chickie Wear, on whose organic onesie or t-shirt the phrase will appear, had a tough time choosing the finalists. Vote today and invite all your friends to participate too.

Window dressing

twoofuscrpped1Yesterday Corey and I had a ball doing something we’d never done before. Mary Kay at Edmonds Bookshop, invited us to created a display with Celebrate Green! in one of her store windows.

We tossed around a lot of ideas, but came up with something very simple for a theme: Read Then Recycle

We turned our books into a variety of fanciful objects (a purse, table, candleholder etc.), to prove the point that there’s more than one way to recycle a book after you’ve read it. Even while we were installing the window, we got lots of kudos. The window is whimsical, different and totally us.

If you happen to be in Edmonds, WA, stop by the Bookshop, say hi to Mary Kay and tell her you think our window is AWESOME!

Celebrate Green book plus goodies giveaway

Lots of our books have been given away via websites like KIWI and Hallmark. But this month, we’re giving away a copy of Celebrate Green! ourselves. And to make it even better, if you win, you’ll find some super surprises when you open the box. (Can you say “chocolate?” and a gorgeous hemp bag from Bring it in a Bag and…well, you’ll just have to win and see what you get!) Retail value of what you receive will be between $50 and $75.

All you have to do to win is to leave a comment on this blog about what you plan to do to green up your Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah or any other special event between now and December 31.

We’ll choose our winner at random from all submissions by mid-November so you’ll be sure to have the book and goodies before the holidays.

Thanks for your participation. We look forward to reading all your great ideas.

And by the way, be sure to check out all the other great offers at the Holiday Gift Fest.
