Presents, Tea, and a Giveaway


Here is a photo of my nice wrapping job for my brother's birthday present. Although not the prettiest present, everything I used was something that I recycled. Birthday season is quickly approaching and I am really trying to "green" my gift giving. Tucked inside the cereal box is an organic t-shirt and a stainless steel water bottle that we found at Dick's Sporting Goods. I made the bow from newspaper and finished it off with a Blue Moon bottle cap in the middle, since he is turning 21. He is into working out and nutrition so I thought the Total cereal box was fitting. I am working on a post about green birthday gift ideas so be looking for that in the next week or so.


Since I have been cutting back on my coffee intake, I have become totally addicted to tea. La Mama Naturale mentioned Mighty Leaf Tea on her blog awhile back and it looked so good. The last time I was at Whole Foods I noticed they had several different kinds so I decided to try the Orange Dulce. The tea is a little more expensive, but it is really good. I can't wait to try another variety. Plus the tea pouches are 100% biodegradeable and they do not use any glue or staples. They also use whole tea leaves. If you like tea, you really should try Mighty Leaf.

Since we are talking tea, I should mention that Celestial Seasonings is also taking strides to help the environment. For every box of tea you buy before March 31, Celestial Seasonings will sponsor the planting of trees all around the world—up to one million trees in all. You can also plant a tree in their virtual forest. For each virtual tree planted, Celestial Seasonings will sponsor the planting of one real tree, up to 50,000 more. Click here to plant a tree.

Anyone want a chance to win one of my coffee cozies? Mommy-Momo is hosting a giveaway for one of my coffee sleeves so head on over and leave a comment for a chance to win. The winner gets a coffee sleeve of their choice.

Have a great weekend everyone.

Hi Jen! Happy Friday. Thanks for the linky love. Much appreciated. Mighty Leaf tea has some great flavors. It's really worth spending the extra dollar or so on it. :) It's definitely a splurge but it's soooo goood!! I still have some of my chocolate mint tea left and it really helps curb my sweet tooth! Enjoy your weekend.

All kinds of fun stuff going on in your world! That tea looks awesome. And you better believe I got in on the giveaway goodness! *crossing fingers*

Ok...the wrapping is genious!

I so wish I was a tea drinker. I feel like I was meant to be a tea drinker....but I hate tea. There's just something so serene about sitting down to have a cup of tea.

Off to the giveaway I go!

I LOVE Mighty Leaf teas! They have a Chocolate Mint Truffle that is to die for. I've not found it in any stores yet so I ordered it online recently. A friend of mine is a major tea lover and gave me a sample of that flavor. I think you'll like it as much, if not more, than the Orange Dulce.

Green birthday ideas sound great. I like the idea of using the Total box with the recycled ribbon. I bet it went over well. :)

Tea is better than coffee, I do agree. Although lately I'm drinking more decaf then I should be, I need something new. Off to check out the links. :)

Great job on teh green gift wrapping and look forward to your ideas. :)

I have never really gotten into tea...maybe someday, but coffee is still king in our house. ;)
