Bonzai + Sustainable Homestead Giveaway!

February 22nd, 2010 - filed under: Furthermore


That’s right, another giveaway! It must be all that V-day love that swirls around in February. And I’m especially excited about this one, because the sponsor is a super small business and a Bonzai reader to boot!

Cayce runs the adorable Etsy shop Sustainable Homestead, which offers handmade and eco-friendly re-usable alternatives to common trashable packaging. Check out her super cute lunchbox sandwich baggies, different sizes of produce and bulk bags, tons of patterns of lunchbox napkins and hankies, and cloth re-usable gift wrapping. All of the items are custom made by Cayce, and many of them are also upcycled for maximum green-ness!

Sustainable Homestead is offering a little sampler to one of my readers, including those two lovely lunchbox napkins pictured above, as well as an awesome ripstop nylon re-usable sandwich baggie (below). I’ve got these babies in my hands right now and I can assure you, they are super fun, super practical, and totally fabulous. I’ll have a hard time letting go of them!


All you have to do to enter is go visit Sustainable Homestead, check them out, and then come back here and leave a comment. That’s it. So good luck! (and go snap up something wonderful from Sustainable Homestead!!!)

    Awesome! She makes some super cute longies & shorties as well, though they are wool/not vegan.

  • Neko

    Yay, produce and bulk bags!! I hate throwing away the plastic bags I use when I get bulk foods and produce, and have been trying to figure out a good, reusable alternative. Thanks for the link to that awesome Etsy store!

    I am so glad someone has thought of this! My husband and I wrap our sandwiches in foil and reuse it until it just about disintigrates. I make my own hankies out of old T-shirts because they are soft, but flannel is softer so I think I will be switching. I love creative ideas and am glad you have shared her etsy site with us.

    I love etsy and I love those on etsy making our lives a little greened. I am in the market for sandwich bags and I love the bulk food bags. Great idea.

  • Jordan

    What a great idea! I’m trying to move away from using most paper products so these are really appealing! (especially the flannel hankies for my poor allergy ridden nose!)

  • Christa

    I’ve thought about making these for awhile now – these designs are such great inspiration! So cool!

  • Kenna

    Cute!! Want!
