Congratulations to our two randomly selected winners in the Little Kay Gardens contest for flowering gift wrap!

I have resolved to become a wee bit more green by always remembering to take my cloth bags grocery shopping and trying to walk, rather than drive, to the grocery store! — Anne

We are starting our own veggie garden this year and are very excited about doing so. — Karen Gonyea

Win Flowering Gift Wrap from Little Kay Gardens

January 12th, 2009

Lynn from Little Kay Gardens is sponsoring a contest to give away a package of Flowering Gift Wrap to two winners! The recycled gift wrap is seeded with hundreds of wildflower seeds. The person receiving your gift will have a whole new way to recycle!

In a recent comment, Lynn said,

“I am a mom of two girls. Throwing out birthday party gift-wrap made me realize I had become a significant contributor to the landfill crisis in our country‚Ķ. so this summer I did something about it. I reached out to an incredible horticulturist, Jim Johansen, and together we developed Flowering Wrapping Paper!

I wanted to create an accessible way for people to make a difference. This is a product we all use, and if you can give the gift of flowers as well, even better!

This pre-seeded gift-wrap is made from 100% recycled paper and currently available in 3 colors, with more on the way! The planting instructions are easy to follow and can be found with our gift cards and on our website.”

To enter:

Leave one comment on this post telling me about any green new year’s goals you made (ie, taking your own bags to the store or buying recycled paper). Two winners will be randomly selected and announced on January 22, 2009. (Enter by end of day on January 21.)

Also, please check your spam filters as the winners will have three days to respond to my email before I pick someone else.

Good luck!
