Swimwear Giveaway Resort 2013 ECO SWIM by AQUA GREEN Collection

on December 13th, 2012

Most of you are either scrambling around doing last minute Christmas and holiday shopping or clicking online to the various websites to order those gifts for the loved ones far and near.

Give yourself a break and enter our GIVEAWAY for the Holidays. For those of you who are going away during the Resort season – we have something great for that February break if you are going somewhere warm. We are giving away swimwear from the Resort 2013 ECO SWIM by AQUA GREEN Collection.

ECO SWIM by AQUA GREEN is a U.S. based company leading the charge for a better and more sustainable tomorrow. They are taking “green” into the mainstream. As a fourth generation family-owned company, they believe their family has a responsibility to your family to reduce our environmental impact. They currently design, fit, source, cut and sew in their home state of Pennsylvania. As important as it is to reduce, reuse and recycle, they also believe that those looking to ‘reduce their carbon footprint in the sand’ should look and feel great while doing so.

Comfort, quality and style are not sacrificed in their mission to help our planet.  These suits are for real women who want to look and feel fabulous. From bottle to beach and plastic to poolside, they have pioneered ecological initiatives to keep our beaches and planet beautiful for generations to come. They are not doing this because it’s trendy to be green, but because they know it’s the right thing to do. They have also put their money where their mouth is by funding clean-up projects. To date, the sustainable swimwear company has collected over 50,000 pounds of trash from our beaches. They are also planning and funding 13 clean up events for 2013.

Aqua Green is partnering up with Shopping and Info to give 1 bikini, tankini, or swimsuit to 1 of our lucky readers from their Resort 2013 collection. The swimsuit retails for $150. One winner will be chosen for the Swimwear Giveaway and the company will send the swimsuit of your choice directly to your home after the winner gives us their size preference.

Batucada eco friendly tattoo necklace

I got the most amazing eco friendly and beautiful necklace today for Christmas. My sister, A, the ever cool ever hip one, gave me a necklace made of an eco friendly plastic that lays flat on the neck to give the appearance of a tattoo.

The beauty of this necklace is that it can lay flat on your skin and you can exercise, water ski, do all kinds of things while it sits on your skin.

This company is in France and has created many different designs to suit different personalities. I love the one she got me. The company is called Batucada.

If you are interested in checking this necklace out, click here to see more of their designs. I just love it. Thanks A.

Click the picture to go direct to this necklace online from the Moma Store.

Inhabit on Good Morning America New Year’s Resolution

on December 1st, 2008
0 Comment

A great New Year’s Resolution for me is to declutter and become more eco conscious at the same time. I found a new site that has been mentioned on Good Morning America, in In Style Magazine, O Magazine, Glamour Magazine, and many other magazines lately, and I just had to check it out for myself.

This company is built by a husband and wife design team who designs simply, beautifully, and functionally. One of my favorite things they designed is the Wall Flats. Wall Flats are Inhabit’s take on a modern, eco-friendly wallpaper. A modern embossed three-dimensional wallcovering that is good for the environment. Does it get any better than that?

Wall Flats are made from 100% bamboo pulp, one of the world’s most renewable resources. No trees were harmed in the making of this product:) They are a sustainable wallcovering that is free of chemicals and will not be a burden to the environment at the end of it’s lifecycle, since the tiles are 100% bio-degradable.

Wall Flats are designed to expand in any direction with an automatic pattern repeat and can be painted to coordinate with your decor. You can cover a existing wall with Wall Flats, help disguise a not-so-smooth wall or add a modern, green wallpaper to any room setting through patterning.

Click the photos below to check it out for yourself:


Here are some of my other favorite things: Click the photos to check them out. I love the simplicity and the functionality. Here is to a new look for a New Year. Happy New Year.
